I am so proud of my country ... "de plus brillants exploits..." (did anyone catch that in the CEO's speech in English? It's from the French version of our national anthem).
And in the middle of all that, I kept thinking of my sister watching in the U.S., glad that I'd sent her a pair of the Olympic red mitts -- as worn by Donald Sutherland, Anne Murray, Wayne Gretzky, Betty Fox and all of them!!! Haha!
CTV also showed our troops in Khandahar (Afghanistan) watching the opening and it moved me beyond words to see grown men tear up when the national anthem was sung. May they all come home safely.
