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.")
