Go Canada Go!

Canadians are generally a pretty low key bunch.

But not, I hasten to add, when we've won the gold medal in men's hockey at the Olympics. As well as the gold medal in the women's hockey at the Olympics.

We are a pretty intense group when it comes to hockey (see this if you need further elucidation: it explains a lot even for English Canada).


Even I, scarred by a father who watched every single bloody hockey game when I was a kid thus depriving me of many a National Geographic Special, non-hockey watcher, shrieked out loud when we scored that final, winning goal. And then we all went outside and yelled a lot. With all our neighbours.

Look, even the kids are celebrating in the streets.

I was in the middle of a rehearsal, Glen was texting me the updates. I wanted USA to win, but am glad Canada won, they deserved it.

Glen was TEXTING you the UPDATES? Now that's devotion, Kim! Whadda guy!

It was all just TOO exciting. It's nice to win when the games are here. Makes it all the more special.

My son was watching at a friends house, so I watched Sense & Sensibility while Canada was playing. In my heart, I was cheering for them :-)

Poor Heather! I don't want to rub it in or anything but did you also notice that he's in a T-SHIRT? And that photo is clickable if you want it magnified...

S! Sense & Sensibility eh? I'm SURE the hockey game was in your HEART. Yup, believe every word. Sure thing.
