Quite the game, eh? And if you have to ask what game, you have obviously been living on a different planet over the past couple of weeks. And at the end of the game, the Canadians celebrated, the Americans were disappointed and the Russians whined. Oh well.
I read the other day, that the game was the most watched television broadcast in Canadian history. At least one source referred to it as “the Crosby Show”, which is probably unfair to the rest of the team.
The interesting thing, is the sheer number of people who watched the game; those in the know, tell us that an average audience of 16.6 million viewers watched the Olympic title game, which is almost half the population of Canada! In addition, about 80% of the country, 26.5 million Canadians, watched at least some part of the game. Incredible!
But there is another event that will be watched by an even greater audience and that will be the return of Christ. And some people will celebrate and others will be disappointed and others will whine. You will have to decide for yourself, which category you will be in. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
