I am not a big Winter Olympics fan, never have been, but as the Vancouver Games progressed through their two-plus weeks of excitement, I found myself drawn further and further in to a wonderful, completely compelling spectacle. By the time Sid the Kid put the puck in the back of the American net in overtime, like millions of other Canadians, I had become a rabid fan of these Games.
So congratulations Vancouver! Well done, Canada!! And thank you to all the athletes, Canadian and otherwise, who put years of heart, soul, toil and effort into creating an event for the ages!!!
