What a game! You couldn't have made it more dramatic if it was written out for a movie script. It was anybody win. Gratz to the US for never saying die. They showed true spirit.

This gold also nailed down a world's record for most golds in a Winter Olympics, adding even more to the storybook ending. Congratulations to all our athletes!!! I don't think I have ever watch so much sports in such a short time before.
With great power comes Awesome irresponsibility.

Ditto. Although... is Canada still kinda hung-up on '80s music? Between that, those awful sweaters and the plaid stuff... yikes.

Spiffy needs to give 'em a makeover.

Roots Canada used to have the contract for Olympic apparel, however they lost it , this is the result. Roots made nice stuff. I actually thought the closing ceremonies was pretty good.

Nickelback is 90s music. And kind of the knee jerk reaction...

"Name a Canadian band, quick!"
"Excellent... get them for the closing ceremonies"
'Dammit, I should have said Barenaked Ladies!'

Having said that, I didn't watch the closing ceremonies, if you're refering to something I missed.

I wish they would have had some oldies playing like Rush and Bryan Adams.

Loc: It's all about the location.
I would have had Rush, Tragically Hip, Loreena McKennitt amongst others. Bruce Coburn would probably have worked in well with the theme of the ceremonies too. There were rumours that Rush was a possibility but I pretty much dismissed it as such since they've never really done anything like that before. Would have been pretty cool to have a 20 minute instrumental going while all the athletes filtered into BC Place though.

Could have been Celine Dion.

I think my first thought would have been Rush, followed closely by Moxy Frouvus. But I suspect Frouvus would have been a little much for the closing ceremonies.
