I know you doubted. I got a bit worried myself. But now, in this last leg of the Olympics, the best of Canada are showing up and showing off their athleticism. We're getting multiple medals a day, and though we won't ever have as much metal as China or the U.S., we're holding our own and our athletes are representing us well on the international stage.
I am officially a bonafide Olympic junkie now. When I get up in the morning, the TV goes on to the Canadian Olympics channel (CBC) until the coverage stops for the afternoon. Then, at 4:00 pm, my TV switches back to the channel as coverage begins again. I find myself loudly cheering for the athletes representing the true north strong and free, and I also find myself secretly jinxing those who are competing against our sportsmen.
Shameful, non? What can I say? I'm not fanatical about football. I don't get all nuts over hockey. I don't even follow basketball or baseball. Indulge me my one couch potato moment every 4 years, won't you?
