Canadians strike gold again!

February 24, 2006
Congratulations to Team Canada’s men’s curling for winning an impressive gold medal today!  Way to go, guys!  They scored an unbelievable six points in the sixth end!  Finland conceded after eight ends.  It was really a bitter sweet moment for Brad Gushue after they won.  His sister, dad and his fiancee were there in the stands (his dad was wearing a shirt that said "Brad’s Dad") but his mom was unable to come because she is undergoing treatment for cancer.  After a bit of celebrating the first thing he did was take out his cel and call his mom.  When they interviewed him he was choked up a bit, but still smiling.  Watching that was so terrific and so personal. *Brace yourself for a rant*   I don’t think anyone would have seen that sort of humanity take place watching men’s hockey.  NHL prima-donnas!
Hooray team Canada curlers. First a bronze for the women and now a gold for the men!
