They win!
Canada Wins Gold
Theo Fleury shows it during the National Anthem for Canada's Gold Medal hockey win.

They won.

What a game. What a series. What an Olympics for Canada, capped off by this great, great win by Canada's best in our national sport. The sport we invented. The sport we play with a passion that no one else has.

The Americans have baseball and their brand of football, and basketball. Good for them I say, but hockey. That's ours. It's been 50 years since Canada has won a gold medal in hockey, and this time, we took both the mens and womens Gold. Damn, it feels good.

Theo Fleury. What can I say about that guy. For a long time, Wendel Clark was my favourite all time player - a guy who had odds against him, was average skills, but played his guts out and somehow came up with the big ones.

Well Clark, move over. Theo showed such grit and determination, it's no wonder why Gretzky singled him out first as THE guy, the heart of a team full of hearts.

And speaking of Gretz. We won the gold, but for me it was a tiny bit melancholy... I sure would have liked to see the Great One in on this team for the Gold as a player. He's still got the legs, but he let the torch pass on. He's not called the Great One just because of his hockey skills. That guy is the athelete of all atheletes and when they say "roll model" in the dictionary, his picture is up there.
