It was an unforgettable night as Canada not only won the gold medal in the most intense hockey game I have ever seen, but also broke the record for the most gold medals ever won in the Winter Olympics.
It was a celebration of epic proportions as we watched the game surrounded by friends & family, and the moment that Sidney Crosby scored the winning goal in overtime is not one that can be described in words.
When the game went into OT, I made a few “deals” with the Hockey Gods should Canada win the Gold Medal, and I will remain true to my word. As such:
(1) I will be running in my Canada hockey jersey at the Chilly Half Marathon next weekend, and
(2) Hubs and I will be naming our first-born child (whenever the time comes!) after Sidney Crosby (perhaps as a middle name since we already have a niece named Sydney).
We take our hockey and Canadian pride very seriously.
I have never been so proud to be Canadian! And this morning I have quite the “Olympics hangover”.
