March 3, 2010

In my 2010 Olympic Winter Games Video Blog for March 1, the final one of the series:

-see footage taken immediately after Sidney Crosby’s winning goal in overtime, lifting Canada over the USA 3-2 for the gold medal in men’s hockey
-Canada’s final medal tally is 26 medals: 14 gold, 7 silver and 5 bronze
-I attend the Closing Ceremonies at BC Place
-I go to the Bell Ice Cube one last time, to see Naturally 7’s final show at the Olympics
-I’ve included some of Oddwalk Ministries’ video of them making good on our wager…it’s very entertaining! See the entire version here:


Winter Olympics Special Delivery: Surprise Flowers from my American Friends (Canada vs. USA)

February 23, 2010

I received a bouquet of flowers today in a nice surprise.

After I surmised that they weren’t from my lovely wife Gail, I discovered that they were from Anne Marie and Gene from the east coast of the good old USA, expressing sympathy at Canada’s loss to the Americans.

I appreciate their thoughtfulness as we try and cope with this tragedy.
