Olympic fever is high today! Canada men's hockey team won over Russia yesterday 7 -3, our women's bobsled team snatched Gold and Silver, and our women's hockey team is playing for Gold today! Woop woop!
As you may have read on my previous posts, Olympic venue tickets were really pricey, and any cheaper ones were/are snatched up like wildfire. So when Roger came home from work on Tuesday and surprised me with tickets to that night's Victory Ceremony, I was doing a little giddy happy dance. Each night there is a ceremony at BC Place, where they present the medals to all of that current day's winners from all countries... oh yes, and there is also live music and entertainment followed by one headliner act at the end (that night it was Canada's Billy Talent). Lucky for us, Tuesday was a good medal day for Canada, since Ashleigh McIvor had just won Gold in Ladies' Ski Cross... so there was a lot of home town yelling, screaming and cheering. If you look real close at the first picture, you can see her standing on the middle podium... (yes, we are a bit in the nosebleeds).
I have my TV on in the other room while I work today, so I can catch all of today's events! Go Canada Go! (insert airhorn sound here).
