On the other hand sometimes it a good idea to step back smell the roses (or in the case the snowdrops) and realize that no matter what happens Vancouver will pull through.

Happy February Vancouver

Patrick Chan is an inspriring hard-worker on ice and though spoken word. I think this guy has a great chance at bringing home a medal.
So i say:
