Rooting for Canada ...

Tonight won't be a long entry
As it has been a very long day
I was out for twelve hours
Between work and errands

But I want to express
How impressed I am
With Canada's men's hockey team
Tonight and their performance
Against Russia.

And to wish Canadian figure skater
Joannie Rochette all the best
In her Free Skate tomorrow -
Having lost her mom just 24 hours
Before the Short Program,
She currently sits in 3rd place.
Such poise and grace ...

I am not usually a sports fan,
But there's something about the Olympics,
And I have always respected athletes -
They do something
I have just never been good at.
Whether we 'own the podium' or not
You should all be very proud.
