I have proof that hockey is more important then religion in Canada. You'll recall yesterday I posted about our mens hockey team winning gold, well all across this country people gathered to watch that game. One location was a church, where the religious service was held between periods. Now if that isn't proof that hockey is a religion in Canada, I don't know what is.

Our Canadian mens Hockey team just beat the Swedish team 3 - 0 to take the gold.
Canada is a hockey mad country to begin with, and with the win we prove it to the world. This is the first time a country has won back to back golds in Olympic hockey, ever.
GO CANADA GO!!!!!!!!!!

You can be sure that as soon as we get home we'll post a blog about it.
Daddy decided that because everyone is raising the Pride flag in support of the gays in Russia during the olympics, daddy decided that I should wear my Pride bandanna during the rest of the games.

Oh, and here is a video of daddy shooting a bow and arrow from the Sportsman show.

Daddy got to try his hand at archery (shooting a bow and arrow), he discovered that he really needs more practice in order to be as accurate as he was in high school. See daddy used to be a member of the archery team, and had gotten really good, but that was several decades ago, he did hit the target once or twice out of the five arrows he got.
I got to see some new animals that most bunnies would dread seeing. Instead of telling you about it, I'll show you some of them.
|I got to see a real live bald eagle|
|The white bird in the back ground is an owl, and I think the one in front is a hawk or a falcon.|
I've showed pictures of my autograph hat before, well I added a new one to the hat yesterday, and this one is very special. Bobby Baun, a former Toronto Maple Leaf defenceman, and the only Leaf on my hat to actually hold the Stanley Cup, in 1962, '63, '64 and '67. And we even got our picture taken with him.
|My new autograph, I've now got seven signatures on my hat.|
|The man himself Bobby Baun|
|A War of 1812 pin|
|We replaced the Support Our Troops pin that we lost|
|The HMCS Haida is a Canadian Navy ship that used to be docked in Toronto, but is now in Hamilton.|
|Getting a little sleepy|
|Do I have something in my teeth?|
|Nommy, left over birthday cake.|
We do have a few more pictures from yesterday, but we have to wait until we receive them in an email. But I'll edit this post to add them once we get those pictures.

Today me and daddy are on a trip to the Toronto Sportsman Show, it was really short notice, because daddy only checked his voicemail very late last night. But we managed to get up and make it to the meetup location, by 9:00am. Getting to the bus was a big challenge, the sidewalk wasn't plowed, and the street was barely passible.
I'll be posting another big blog later tonight, with lots of pictures of my adventures today, including a new autograph for my hat.

Today daddy had to leave my stroller at home when we went out, due to the piles of snow making the sidewalk impassible. Daddy had to carry me in his arms, and even then it was tough going, we had to walk on the road because, well, there wasn't a sidewalk to walk on.
|There should be a sidewalk near that bench, but it's buried under a foot of snow.|
|That driveway had just been cleared|
|walking on the road was the only way to get anywhere|
|Daddy really needed a pair of snow shoes|
|How I think everyone feels about the stupid groundhogs now.|

Anyway, I named my new horsie pal Thor, because it's the name of the God of Thunder, and Thunder was the name of the first horse I ever rode on.
