Go Canada!!!

So, there are many things I could blog about. It's the last day of Q3, and all that stands between me and Barcelona is four exams and one DA class. Yesterday, I came across a really cool opportunity to satisfy class credit, help out the Haitian economy, and work with a successful local businessman.

But all of those things can wait (Q3, Barcelona Global Business Experience (GBE), Creative Capitalism class) in favour of blogging about the fact that my country totally rocks.

After losing an inconsequential game to the Americans in men's hockey on Sunday, I took a lot of verbal beating. People that I didn't know were sending me messages via Office Communicator to rub in the loss. All of that made last night's 7-3 beating of Russia that much sweeter.

Just for the record, I've been trying to be as nice as possible to my Russian friends, all of whom trash-talked me before the game.

To further amplify my sense of national pride, we won gold and silver in bob-sledding and have a guaranteed medal today in women's hockey.

I'd write more about why Canada is awesome, but my final class of Q3 is about to start!

I'm leave ice hockey out of this. Have fun in Barcelona!! That's where I went last year for Spring Break, albeit, not on a GBE. It's a great city!! PS If there's a champion's league game, GO!!! Tickets are expensive, but it's a great experience, especially if you have any interest in football (aka soccer).

Oh, but look at that. Your girls couldn't get anything past Szabados. Gold medal Canada. We've set a new record for golds this Olympics.

Haha, you're right. I guess I need to practice my reading skills. Either way, you guys still played a better game. Congrats on the record golds... "own the podium" has worked well! I can't wait for the Sunday afternoon rematch for gold!
