Taking It A Bit Too Far

from Peter Adler at the Cult of Hockey,

So, where were you when Sidney Crosby scored the gold medal-winning goal against the Americans? Eh?

When this kind of question was first asked following the November 22, 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy, it made sense to a degree. The victim, after all, was the United States of America’s 35th president, and his premature death did have a bit of an impact on the rest of the world.

But no, Canada’s sports commentators, and even political pundits, now wax sentimentally how the Olympic games in Vancouver have changed Canada. Often, they don’t even bother to add that the change was for the better. That, they assume, is taken for granted.

Let us put the entire matter into context. Canadians, and their children, and their grandchildren even, are now stuck with a debt that won’t be paid off in less than 30 years. Now, that is a legacy if there ever was one.
