Olympic withdrawal

I must say, this Vancouver 2010 Winter Games has definitely made me become more patriotic than I ever have in my entire life put together. I never knew speedskating could be so enthralling. All new respect for what goes on in the Olympic Oval back home in Calgary. Also seeing Evgeni Plushenko fail in his quest for repeating Olympic gold after all his talk… kinda funny. The future of figure skating will definitely turn out to be quite interesting… what with not necessarily having to do a quad ‘n all. And now, Alexandre Bilodeau is a household name. How weird is that gonna be for him? Making history with 14 golds, 1st ice dance gold, and watching that golden, game-winning goal over the US was pretty freakin’ epic. So this is what Canadian athletes can do with some real funding. Wonder if they’ll get the same kind of funding for the Summer Games. And all further Games. If not, I anticipate some controversy.

PS. I always wondered how NHL team atmosphere feels like after the Olympics… I mean you just spent the last couple weeks competing tooth and nail against your own teammates. And now you’re back on the same team, goin’ for the Cup. Wonder if theres much post-Olympics ill-will in the change room for a while…

PPS. I feel like theres nothing exciting to watch on TV anymore.

  2. They’re friends right? I think it’s more weird for them to play against each other coz they’re so used to playing with each other all the time. NHL will be back to normal!
