I believe it was the mayor of Vancouver last night [edit: hmm okay, it was the VANOC dude] who said “messy been” in what I can only hope was a sad attempt at saying “merci bien”. I guess we can applaud him for attempting to say it? Maybe?
Anyway, thanks Vancouver. There were a lot of ups and downs in the first week especially – but you turned this event into a very special one for Canadians. Winning THE gold medalS was certainly a highlight, but the whole thing was pretty special. It’s something I’m going to remember for a long time.
Thanks to all the other athletes for coming and participating. Obviously it wouldn’t be as special without you! Thanks especially to the countries who dont’ do this whole winter thing and yet still sent people (I’m looking at you Ghana!).
Thank you to the Canadian athletes. You were awesome. All of you. Even the ones who didn’t win. You didn’t disappoint me in the least.
Thanks Vancouver! Now get some snow for the next time :D
