I’m psyched about my hometown being the centre of international sport, bonhomie, and patriotic zest. On the other hand I worry Vancouver may have sold out personal privacy, the homeless, civic funding, artistic and journalistic freedom in order to kow-tow to the Olympics machine.

But the time for hand-wringing is later. For now I’m just psyched on wintersports action. Especially the hockey.
And once you hear Canada’s Mens Olympic Hockey Team tear apart the competition in a hip-hop masterclass of glass-rattling brutality, you will be too.

Word to the double-double.
And good luck with all the rest of it, Vancouver.
