Today is a year since a country's hearts collectively stopped beating, then soared....watching Sid score the Gold Medal winning goal in mens' hockey. I will never forget that moment. Ever. There are many "Where were you when...?" moments, but for this generation, it is undoubtedly that one.
I just spent ages looking through youtube videos, trying to find the best (and maybe getting a bit teary) but decided on this one since I was a bit of a sucker for "I Believe". Oh come on, you were too. That game, that goal, brought so much happiness. Was it because I was having such a particularly hard time emotionally with the boys in the hospital at that point, so I didn't have a lot of other joy going on in my life? Maybe. But probably not. I just love hockey that much, love Canada that much, and that moment, beating the US (sorry to my American friends but really, that was the icing on the cake) could not have been better written for the history books if it were scripted.
Anyway, now that I have once again waxed poetic about my love for hockey, my point is that with all this re-living the Olympics that the media is doing these days, I remembered that the boys' Olympic t-shirts might finally fit them, so I took some photos of them wearing them today.
Check out what they looked like wearing these same shirts just over a year ago here. Wowsa!
