I wrote this blog last week, long before anyone knew that Canada's men's hockey team would be playing Slovakia in the semifinals. I was just looking for a country whose national colours are sort of similar to Canada's. You know, for comic effect. No one at our house is going to be cheering for Slovakia tonight. Really.
We've been watching a lot of Olympics at chez Party of 3.
It's been amazing. While we are cheering for Canada, of course, we have been blown away by the awe-inspiring performances of the Americans, the Swiss, the Germans, the Norwegians, and the Koreans, to name but a few.
It has been a dream come true to watch the best athletes from all over the world compete and win gold here in Canada.
But fair warning: when it comes to hockey, the women's and the men's, let us make one thing perfectly clear -- it's our game.
GO, CANADA, GO!!!
