2010 Winter Olympics Video Blog #21: Canada vs. USA Men’s Hockey Final, Team Canada Haikus

In my 2010 Olympic Winter Games Video Blog for February 27:

-It was Canada’s best day ever in the history of the OIympics (both summer and winter), as we won 3 gold medals: Kevin Martin led his team to a gold medal in men’s curling over Team Norway (funky pants and all), snowboarder Jasey-Jay Anderson won gold in parallel giant slalom, and the long-track speed skating team of Denny Morrison, Lucas Makowsky and Mathieu Giroux won gold in the team pursuit event. As well, our Canada 1 men’s bobsleigh team won a bronze medal.
-The 4 medals pushed Canada’s total to 25 medals: 13 gold, 7 silver, and 5 bronze.
-The 13 gold medals ties the record for most gold medals at the Winter Olympics, and the 13 gold medals sets a record for most gold medals won by a host country.
-As we look ahead to the massive gold medal match between Canada and the USA in men’s hockey, I pull out all of the stops for the video blog: I bring in Sean, Jacob, and Kayla, and we together reach into our bag of trips to pull out the often imitated yet never duplicated Hockey Haikus!
-I start off the video with a bit of the Ultimate Canucks Haiku video from 3 years ago. It has close to 28,000 hits on youtube and helped us win the Ultimate Canucks Family award in the Ultimate Canucks Fan Competition in 2007. See the whole video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5SDFF0sp_Q
