I WATCHED THIS LIVE AND WAS SO HAPPY FOR YOU GUYS.

(Now I'll have to google the bit about his brother, cause I don't know the backstory.)

Alexandre's older brother, and his inspiration, has ceribral palsey. He was there on the side lines the whole time cheering.

I just can't help but wonder how amazing their parents must be. It's so hard to raise a disabled child and so hard to raise an olympian but to raise one of each?

Thanks! :D

Alexandre was just so great about it, and Canada is breadthing a sigh of releif since the previous two olympics held in Canada, we didn't win any gold, it was like a curse. And now that's broken! :D

What sport? They just started showing footage almost 45 min ago. I can't wait to see it.
Go Team Canada!

It was Men's Moguls. It was a pretty impressive run. :D

We now have one of each!

It was really fun watching it. I don't have cable, but I'm tempted to try and get some bunny ears working just so I can watch the olympics. Or maybe they're available online somewhere....
