Canada’s Shining Moment!!

Everywhere you looked around today, anyone you spoke with … the anticipation was palpable, the vibe was in the air. No other Olympic Medal won to date for Canada in the 2014 Sochi Olympics would mean more to us as a nation than winning the Gold Medal in today’s women’s Ice Hockey Final. Think about that for a moment. Down 2-0 with three minutes and a half remaining in women’s hockey greatest rivalry, things looked bleak … silver bleak. A minute later, USA’s lead is cut in half, and our hopes quadrupled. We’re back in it … for now. Now, what happened next, for as long as I live, I’ll never forget this. With our goalie pulled, looking for the tying goal, … the linesman bodychecks the Canadian defenseman at the blueline … not only taking away an easy dump in, keeping the pressure on for Canada … but instead, giving an empty net freebie shot for the Americans … and after those few agonizing seconds …watching the puck nearing the empty net,  watching slow motion-ish as it appears to be going in … it hits the post, almost miracously!! OMG, losing the game that way woulda been a travesty! We kept fighting, came back and scored forcing overtime … and then won Gold in glorious sudden death overtime fashion! Greatest game EVER … way to go girls … you done us proud!!

From Belarus with love!

… my little Minsk!! Don’t let conspiring American media make you think different. Just because she ain’t American, and just because she competes in a sport you don’t identify with, in a country well beyond your borders, make no mistake about it … triple Gold Medal winner Belarusian biathlete Darya Domracheva is the star of the Sochi Show!! She completely dominated her competitors … all three wins were won handily, making her accomplishments all the more impressive … хорошо!!

Super-G

Been non-bloggin’ ’bout the Olympics! Sochi what? None of your business! I did awake early (2 a.m.) anticipating this race. I’ve been trying to watch as much live Alpine Skiing as I can despite the awkward 9 hour time difference. This foxy-chick f’n rocks (and, she ain’t even Canuckian)! She absolutely destroyed the course! Great job girl!

Gold medalist – Anna Fenninger from Austria!

Usain Bolt – Living legend!!

… and HE IS!! And to IOC President Jacques Rogge pooh poohing and disagreeing saying NOPE to that, referring to/giving him credit for icon … but not LEGEND? Bullocks!! What a load of codswallop!! Thankfully JR eventually (days later, pressure presumably by the Olympic Committee … and everybody else for that matter, lol) saw the error of his silly semantics and recanted. Yep, 2 Olympics, 6 events, 6 gold medals, 4 world records … in my books that’s amotherfuckinglegend!! Ya Mon!! 🙂
