Bang Your Drum

In the opening ceremonies, Bryan Adams and Nelly Furtado sang "Bang Your Drum".

Indeed. We just beat Russia 7-3.

A long way to go, but tonight: we are pleased.


Edit: As Colleen pointed out, it was a huge night all-around. Canada won medals in the women's bobsleigh, including Heather Moyse from PEI! (I didn't see that until after posting.)

(This undoubtedly tremendous, though I maintain the hockey is big. To paraphrase someone on the Russian team, "Back home, this is a disaster. The end of the world.")

Maybe on the National stage the hockey was big news but on little ol' PEI the bobsleigh won the day! For the record, athletes from PEI have two Olympic medals ever and they are both GOLD BOBSLEIGH medals - we are a bobsleigh powerhouse!!!

Yesterday Canadian women won 4 medals (gold, silver, silver, bronze) and we beat up the Russians. Most excellent!!!!
