Gold Medal Extravaganza

We just finished watching Canada win the gold medal game...it is the first time I've felt truly homesick! It was an absolute blast...we didn't know where we could watch it so we went to the American embassy and sat at the very front of the Visa Application room watching NBC. After Canada scored we were up on our chairs cheering, and narrowly escaped getting kicked out! Phone calls were coming in every few minutes asking what the rukus was all about...but I think we got some of the Fijians excited. Back at the Internet cafe, there are two other canadians (one from Calgary, one from Edmonton) e-mailing home and trying to get hockey news! Going for some beer and hanging with the Canucks...I miss everyone more than ever, but feeling much too excited right now to enter text in a readable fashion... Quick extra note: Ben King is here...seriously I've found him, but this time it is anti-Ben. The guy, Brian, is from the USA and looks absolutely identical to Ben...I will send a picture as soon as I can. Seriously it looks like Ben with a teeny bit more of Doug squeezed in...the difference he is a complete moron! The stupidest person I have ever spoken to in my life...trying to have any kind of conversation with him is absolutely impossible... I thought it was just the drugs, but sober Brian is equally frusturating. Don't forget to e-mail me at slvander@sfu.ca!

Just think - when people ask "where were you when Canada won gold in 2002?" you can say standing on a chair in the Visa application room at the Canadian embassy.

All of Canada is relieved to be recognised as having the best hockey players in the world.

Time to go to the tanning booth and pretend I'm on a tropical beach somewhere...

Whoops - make that American embassy. And I wonder that you didn't get kicked out!

Yay! We did it! I'm glad you got to see the game. It was a riot. And damn, Shanahan and Lindros looked good! Looks like Lindros may have invested in some Rogaine. I swear, it looks like he has more hair! Miss ya tons! Love ya!
