Thrilling finishes

Canada was ahead by one rock with a couple of ends to play last night:  and in a thrilling finish to the men's curling competition, they took a couple of rocks to lead by three with an end to play. 
Today, the US came back to tie the men's ice hockey final with just half a minute or so to play.  And in a thrilling finish, Sidney Crosby came back to score the first goal in the sudden death playoff.
As one with a love for Canada, these two events with thrilling finishes made for thrilling finishes to a wonderful olympic games.  And it's great to see records fall: both total medals (taken by US) and number of golds (by Canada).

Yours, loving the humour of the closing ceremony,
