'Tis the end...

The last Olympic fencing event was yesterday, and to the best of my knowledge, the CBC has shown a total of 4.5 minutes of fencing, and one interview with Sherraine MacKay, on the Tuesday when she fenced Individual Epee. Little to no mention was made of the WE team's absolutely STELLAR performance, coming this close to a bronze medal, even with a legal little trick by the French team. I spent about half an hour Friday morning constantly hitting Refresh in my browser, which was tuned to the bout results page for the Bronze medal match. I was so twitchy, and not just from whatever was happening with the weather, that I couldn't really concentrate on anything else until the match was over. Alas, we lost the medal, but succeeded in placing higher than we ever have in any Olympic fencing match (team or individual, to the best of my knowledge). Wish I could have seen it.

And now, back to my regularly scheduled life.
