Hmm, maybe for once I'll be happy with NBC's numerous commercials.

This. He also said something about us waiting for an opportunity to show our patriotism, and this was it.

It's been an incredible 17 days. I've had an amazing time, and am so sad it's over.

Yeah. I'm feeling a weird kind of let-down, and I never intended to get caught up in Olympic fever, in the first place.

I just got back from the Dundas Square celebrations. What a fucking game! Good on the USA for making it a good one. I nearly had a heart attack. When Crosby scored the winner, the bar when absolutely ape shit. Such an amazing feeling. The partying in the streets afterward was insane. What a game. What a night. Go Canada!!!!!!!

(and the CN Tower was lit up gold tonight!)

Another awesome part of the day: Right after Canada won, everyone in the bar sang O Canada, followed by We Are the Champions, followed then by a spirited version of this

YouTube - Don't Stop Believin by Journey

Every single person in the bar singing at the top of their lungs. It was a hilariously awesome celebration

Yeah. I was SOO happy to see him there but the song selection was not right. The choreography was cool however.

For K-OS Born To Run would have been perfect imo!! Perfect mix of rock n hiphop. B-Boy Stance if he wanted to stay totally hiphop.

Alanis was the only other thing worth watching although I didn't mind Marie of course

Anyone catch the looks on people's faces during Nickleback Hedley and Simple Plan? Note to world: we actually don't listen to these bands up here.

Neil Young

Where were Rush? Arcade Fire? Barenaked Ladies? Fuck, Glass Tiger or Triumph? I shudder to say: Tragically Hip or even - groan - Sloan?

(aside: Alan Frew co-wrote that annoying I Believe song. Wisely let the other dude take all the credit, tho! )

GO CANADA!!! What an amazing finish!!

Unfortunately my power went out during the women's figure skating final Thursday night (big wind and rain storm), as soon as Mao Asada had started. So I never saw Joannie Rochette or any of the others after Yu Na Kim-so after that I was kind of bitter about the Olympics.

I tried watching some of the closing ceremonies but after 10 I was trying to watch another show. I did see Shatner, how very embarrassing..wtf?

Of course NBC cut them off at 10:30 for that God awful new Jerry Seinfeld show The Marriage Ref.

^that's actually a great idea. I'd also like to see more mixed doubles nordic combined. Anywhere we can put Johnny Spillane or Billy Demong in more events,

Too bad Demong just got engaged...
