This is a blog about me. I'm sure it will at some point talk about the things that I love... that being, my wife Meredith, family, friends, EMU, the Jays and baseball, the Maple Leafs, music, art, TV, biking, and whatever else is going on in my mind.

Olympic Update

Final Medal Standings...

United StatesUnited States99725

Canada's best medal count to date, hopefully more in Vancouver 2010. Germany led the medal standings for the 4th year in a row. Congratulations to Cindy Klassen, a Mennonite from Winnipeg, for capturing 5 Olympic medals to give her the most medals in a single winter games ever by a Canadian. She is also the most decorated Canadian Olympian ever with a total of 6 medals having won a single medal in the 2002 games.
