Poetry Train Monday - 141 - American sentence 3


*insert crazed war whoop*

I composed this latest American sentence mere seconds after Sidney Crosby scored the tie-breaking goal for Olympic gold in the most stressful hockey game ever.

Hats off to uber-amazing US goalie Ryan Miller and the agressive American team who forced me to physically hold a hand over my view of the Canadian net throughout the entire game. Interactive audience participation - what can I say?

Olympic gold so tough to grasp, making victory all the sweeter.






















Stan Ski says Congratulations Canada - on this and achievement throughout the Olympics.

madeline d. murray says Yay Canada! Yay American Sentence celebrating the Canadian victory! ;-)

Janet says It was a nail-biter for sure, Julia! Wouldn't have it any other way - both teams craving the win, both fighting for the gold - a perfect ending to a fantastic Winter Games :)

It really was a great Olympics - a lot of thrilling moments. Congrats to Canada - on the medal too. I'm sure it was like the highest rated program in Canadian history.

It's a very exciting day for Canadians - and at least was a game well played. Congratulations!

I'm still recovering. Talk about edge of your seat game! The US gave us a run for our money, which was awesome and Miller was like a brick wall for most of the tournament, but the Iggy & Sid show in OT finally brought us home the gold. Way to go boys!
