The Olympic Fever
We are about 24 hours into the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, Canada and if you are reading this blog, undoubtedly, the question on the tip of your tongue is, “who is representing JeffLand at the 2010 Olympics? I didn’t see JeffLand during the opening ceremonies.”
Sadly, the population of JeffLand is so small that we don’t even have enough people to form a single hockey line, never mind a whole team. Skiing isn’t our thing and JeffLand has taken an official stand against curling as a real sport. And between luge and bobsledding, JeffLand doesn’t have enough real estate to actually build a track.
So there it is. JeffLand is not represented at the Olympics. Perhaps someday, we will be able to send someone to the Olympics but I’m not holding my breath. Until the day that we do send someone, JeffLand will be officially throwing support behind Canada.
Of course, Canada has a long and illustrious history at the Olympics and on the world stage in general. All JeffLandians were Canadians at one time (until JeffLand seceded from Canada) so it’s natural for us to cheer Canada on.
Given our penchant for hockey, naturally we are focused on Canada’s men’s hockey team as is much of every Canadian. We have been following the NHL and with some of the insane talent that will be representing various nations, it is going to be an exciting Olympic hockey tournament.
As far as I’m concerned, Canada is a huge super power in the tournament however Sweden, Russia and the United States of America can’t be dismissed. I just want the good guys to come out on top.
