Well, I'm not always treading these halls, I just swing through once in a while to see what cute pictures the Kitteh Guild is posting up.
But when the time comes, I guess I can start the next good ol' Canuck Shack. Not that there seems to be a whole lot of us left . . . Maybe we need to open an on-line Maple Syrup, Back Bacon and Canadian Beer store . . .
And, since I'm here . . . how about our Olympic athletes, eh? Derek Drouin was absolute poetry to watch in the High Jump, pity he just couldn't crack the 2.29 ceiling . . . but a Bronze is still nice considering Canada has only medalled in that sport three times since the 30's.
Alas, our sweet Tara Whitten just missed the podium by a hair (or a few seconds) . . . We had everything but our eyes crossed for her, but she's still a champion to all Edmontonians. A Bronze medal in the Team Sprint is still an Olympic medal, no matter how ya slice it.
And of course, the heartbreak for the Canadian Women's soccer. What a robbery . . . the ref's 6 second call on our goalie and that incredibly blatant "hand ball" call??? Good grief. But I guess it's all part of the sport and the competition, rotten as it is and we'll still be cheering them on to a Bronze of their own.
How about you folks? Anyone else catching lots of Olympic coverage?
