I really thought I was on the side of "it's too expensive, waste of money, too commercial" etc. but I got totally caught up in the olympics. what a party, the atheletes such amazing feats, win or lose by 100ths of a second, and the fantastic canadian sportsmanship.
Plus the fans were having such a good time - Whistler was wild. Spontaneous singing of O Canada.
I was coming home excited to see who had won each day, and the Candian atheletes didn't let me down.
