Today is the day....and it's Canada's time. We've waited 50 years for this, a chance to hear OUR national anthem. For an entire generation of Canadians, this can be our Paul Henderson moment....years from now people will ask "Where were you when Canada won on February 24, 2002?"
I strongly believe that today millions of Canadians will forget about their tax returns, the leaky roof, the flat tire on their car...for it is our day.
For those who say "it's just hockey....", they don't quite understand, but they will realize that if there's anything that could strongly unite people from St. John's to Vancouver, it's that "good 'ol hockey game"
