We are the champions my friends

We won Olympic Gold in the only event that really mattered to Canadians...Men's Hockey.

We won against the Americans. It was epic. The winning goal was scored by none other than Sydney Crosby, a legend in my home province of Nova Scotia and my hometown of Halifax.

We dragged the little man way past his bedtime to watch the game with some new friends who invited us over. It was worth it. Sweden is second only to Canada in terms of how seriously they take their hockey and to heart.

To top it all off, Canada broke a record. We beat Russia as the country with the most Gold medals ever, in the history of the Olympics...14. So if you're counting wins by Golds, Canada won the Olympics. The 2010 Olympics that were held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

We are no longer that grayed out area just above the U.S. border. "God keep your land, glorious and free. Oh Canada, we stand on guard for thee."

I have never been prouder to be a Canadian. And neither have the hundreds of thousands of people lining the streets celebrating in every major city across our country.
