We WON!! Our Men’s hockey team beat Team USA by 1 point, the last goal scored during overtime by Sydney Crosby, who, I’m sorry, could have done better during the actual game. First the shootout and now overtime. Sigh. Ah well! CANADA WON!
We finish with 14 Golds, 7 Silvers, and 5 Bronze medals~
I just finished watching the Closing Ceremony, and it was half boring half awesome…
There was a small showing of Nikki and some French girl singing I Believe (eng/french), it sounded nice~
After the Opening Ceremony, the USA said that the Canadian hosted Olympics was a failure from the start, the opening ceremony must have been directed by clowns, they couldn’t even get the fourth torch up!
As Canadians, we are nothing but gracious, so we took that US story, and made it into a humourous act. They got a mime to act as the mechanic and fix the last torch so it would rise up with the other four. The performance was quite entertaining. After that though, there were speeches, anthem sang, etc. In between all that monotonous official business though, there was a performance by Eva Avila, Derek Miller, and Nikki Yanofsky, which sounded great! I think Nikki looks a little like Selena Gomez, I don’t know why though… Anyone else see the resemblance?
Then there were more anthems, and more speeches. Later Neil Young performed and then there were then a few speeches by three different Canadian comedians: William Shatner, er.. can’t remember the female…, and Michael J Fox.
Another story from the US: They said that in the opening ceremony, Betty Fox (Terry Fox’s mother) or in their case, Michael J Fox’s mother, walked with the Canadian flag. They also said that it was Michael J Fox who ran across Canada to spread awareness for cancer. Only the US can make this mistake. Only them… (What a FAIL)
Then there was a performance by Michael Buble~ (Awesome artist~) and there were dancers and performers who brought out huge rolling stands… and boards.. and animals? There were some huge cut out RCMPs and hockey players, then there were large beavers, and then some moose balloons… I didn’t really get the point of that…
After, the whole stage turned into a dance floor where all the athletes and volunteers danced to music. Performances done were: Nickelback: Burn it to the ground, Avril Lavigne: My Happy Ending and Girlfriend, Alanis Morissette: Wunderkind, Hedley: Cha’Ching, Marie-Mai: Emmone-Moi, I can’t remember what K’OS sang… and Simple Plan: Your Love Is A Lie… and that’s all I remember… Aha~ I think I got everyone~^^
That was about it. I pretty much only liked the music, though the comedians were funny, along with the mime~^^
The Vancouver 2010 Olympics draw to a close, but the Paralympics is starting March 12^^
Today is the last day of the Chines New Years Celebration, meaning the New Year officially begins. So we went out to dinner with my dad’s side again. I love our dinners just because they’re hilarious.
The main entertainment today came from the fortune cookies.
See Asian fortune cookies always have either bad grammer, are dumb, or really simple.
My aunt’s said: Respect isn’t given, it’s earned. Thanks, I kind of learned that in Kindergarten
My cousin R’s said: You will read this and say ‘Geez! I could come up with a better fortune than that!’
My cousin K’s said: About time I got out of that cookie!
My dad’s said: Woman’s intuition like feather on arrow. May help flight to truth.
I love Asian restarants~
Happy New Year Asians~^^
