(in the comments section of the article (see canali) is the youtube video link to his winning gold...same link as below)
thought i'd share
hey we're all so proud of alex: afterall he was the 1st canuck in olympic history to win gold during a canuck hosted olympic venue....and that was near the middle of the olympics, too,if I recall when we weren't doing so well in the events...but after that and esp towards the last wk then all the big wins started to trickle in (man that last wk was amazing for our gold medal count) US had the most medals and we had the most golds (not bad for a country 1/8 the size, population wise)
those mogul finals (for both guys and gals) were just top notch entertainment imo
still gives me goosebumps watching it...awesome free entertainment!
jeez did Vancouver and Whistler just bubble over with great parties
and a super buzz during those Olympics, earlier this year...I miss that international commaderie and party atmosphere to be frank...people walking around (many visitors to our city, downtown was PACKED) wearing their country flags like a superman costume or having their faces painted with their national flags...the many countries having their own 'houses' and beer/''cultural'' gardens that had packed lineups waiting sometimes for hours to get in.. cool!
