Wayne Gretzky stole the show last night for the opening of the 2010 Winter Olympic games in Vancouver British Columbia last night. For many; for me I personally enjoyed watching the Jamaican athlete wobbling around as he looked a little discombobulated as the Parade of Nations participating flowed by.
It was ironic watching some of the action. I really liked the fur clad girls leading each nation. Did anyone notice the irony of having one of those furry hatted women leading the team from Iran? The contrast between the full body coverings? And then having Iran followed by Israel? That was a delicious moment of political irony that I’m sure had people tittering around the globe.
The opening, marred by an earlier death in a Luge practice run was a visual wonder to behold and made Canadians proud I’m sure.
Sadly however the Montreal Canadiens weren’t quite as patriotic as they fell to the evil Americans from Philadelphia who pushed and bullied them as only bourgeois Capitalist Americans could. Our brave Canadien’s fell 3-2 although it was good to see newcomer Domenic Moore hit the net, and emergency call up for Andrei Markov, PK Subban, picked up his first NHL point, an assist, in the 3rd period as the Habs tried to rally back and defeat the imperialist American team. Carey Price took the loss.
Vancouver edged Columbus 4-3, and the Leafs were crunched 4-0 by St.Louis.
