Hey Leafs Nation,
The last two weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster ride here in Vancouver, and so I`ve been told, all across Canada. I stood there in the rafters of Canada Hockey Place, arm in arm with my brother, my best friends and 20,000 fellow Canadians, and sang Oh Canada at the top of my lungs as the Maple Leaf was raised high into the air. There is no way I can put this win into perspective - not now. Maybe in a few years I can look back and truly understand what this win, this Gold Medal, meant for this city, this province, this country, and my life. But until then, I will continue to bask in this moment of true victory. Victory like this, as all fans of the Toronto Maple Leafs know, is not something that is experienced very often. It washes away all bitter memories (Torino), it forgives all sins (Brodeur vs. USA), and it gives us a firm reminder of why we invest our time, our emotions, our fears and our dreams, in a group of twenty-three men - the best of our best - for two short weeks in February, and now, for all time.

Anyway, greatest day of my life. This concludes my reports from the Olympics. Go Canada Go! Go Leafs Go!
