Okay, I personally may not be an OFFICIAL supporter, but the company I work for is a licensee, our chairman was a torch bearer, and well, I am bursting with pride that the world is coming to my country for the Olympics!
I was lucky enough to be gifted with a replica torch, a thank you for some of the work I did with VANOC (the Vancouver organizing committee). This has a special place of honour at our house for the next couple of weeks - the whole family is pretty proud of this piece. Even the display box is pretty unique and special.
I love the Olympics - winter, summer, doesn't matter. I tend to watch a lot of sports anyway, but the Games, well, they're special. There is so much pride involved, I find myself watching sports I wouldn't have been interested in otherwise.
I will spend the next two weeks, with our TV tuned to whatever station is carrying the Games - CTV, TSN, Sportsnet, even NBC occasionally. I'll be tuned in online during the day (for a reasonable amount of time, with the knowledge and blessing of my company - we are all proud supporters here!) and my son will be watching with me. We will cheer on all Canadians and every other athlete that puts it all on the line for those 17 days. Opening ceremonies, closing ceremonies, and everything in between. Even during Survivor and the Amazing Race - there will be channel flipping going on.
