Oh Canada

What a great end to the Olympics. My family has been glued to the set for over 2 weeks now (hence my lack of blog posting). The gold in hockey caused a near frenzy in our living room. And these late night events have been killing me -- I HAD to watch the end of the game, or event or to see the medal ceremony. My lack of productivity since Feb. 12 is due completely to my obession with all sports -- I don't even know that Skeleton is a sport -- more a crazy, wild ride down a hill on a cookie sheet, in a real tight suit...
The great thing about the Olympics is that it has given every one a common language. At the home arena while waiting for DS's practice to end, I was amazed to see parents from opposing teams chatting most emphatically about one sport or another. Who knew that curling could bridge PeeWee hockey mom animosity?
The thing is -- now what will we talk about? The weather hardly brings about such passionate conversation.
