First off, Canada got 3 medals today – finally! Carol Huynh may be tiny, but she can whip your ass. You have to watch the footage of her flipping her opponent onto her back for a big score. So much to like about this story – parents immigrated from Viet Nam for a better life, she had only 2 senior championships and she defeated a world and Olympic champion. When asked about her victory, Carol said, â€œI knew I wanted to go in with supreme confidence in my abilities and not doubting myself one second. That’s what I did, and I wrestled the match of my life, and it was awesome.â€
An article in the The Post says that the majority of Canadians are more interested in the competition and doing our best than in bravado and single-minded focus on winning, but her chutzpah is what got her that medal. And she cried while the anthem was played – gets me every time.
And did you see this penguin who was knighted by Norway? Honestly, with the high-necked saunter and the inspection of the guard, I’m not sure you can tell the difference between him and the royal family.
Also, it’s Madonna’s 50th. I think I can freely admit that she’s been a soundtrack of my life – there’s been more bum-shakin’, drinking, sexing, aerobics, relaxing, singing in the living room and naked euchre to Ms Madge than just about anyone else. You’d think I was a 6 ft tall trannie from New York or something. There’s a hilarious story with my belt buckle and “Justify My Love” that I can’t say much more about. Ask Tiger.
