21st Winter Olympics:Day 17 Recap

The time has come and the 21st Winter Olympics have come to a close. Before the flags were lowered and we said good-bye to Vancouver there were 2 more medals to hand out.

Tonight's blog is going to be a bit different. Hope you have enjoyed the daily recaps!

1. Men's Hockey

The big question was gold or silver? Canada was facing a rematch against the USA. It was going to be a nail bitter with no question. Canada came out to a great start. We shot out to a 2-0 lead in the second period. The USA got a goal to get within 1 goal. With only 25 seconds left in the game the USA tied the game to lead to overtime. Canada dominated in overtime, and came out with the win!

This game was the highlight of the Olympics. It was "the" event of games, and really anything but a gold would have been unacceptable. This game was amazing. It came out with a story tale ending as Crosby scored the winning goal.

Words cannot describe the feelings that happened within the game. Before the game started my family was talking about if we would have paid the $2000 to be at the game. Dad and I both said that we would in a minute. Mom was pretty hesitant. However, when we were standing receiving our medals she quickly changed her mind!
