Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

Wishful Wednesday: Olympics

'I wish' .... I could have gone to the 2010 Winter Olympics to see one event, and it would have been Team USA men's hockey games!

Initially, I was going to say the women's snowboard halfpipe, then I was going to say women's figure skating. Although, I would have loved to see those events, I had to go with the hockey so I could have seen this man rock the ice:
Ryan Whitney, Team USA defenseman. What's up with this guy, you may ask. Well, Ryan played defenseman for my alma mater, Boston University, when I was a student there, and he was a stand-out player back then.

Plus, it doesn't hurt that he's cute or that another BU alum (who graduated before I arrived on the Terrier scene), Chris Drury, was also on Team USA, and I do enjoy a good, physical hockey game. Especially since we played Canada TWICE, and that rivalry is epic.

Good job Team USA! Ryan and Chris, Terrior nation is proud of you!

I get chills sometimes watching the epic-ness that is the Olympics! I'd love to have enough money to be an in-stands spectator one day.
