Mike Robertson of Canmore, Alberta has won Canada’s fourth medal, a silver in snowboarding.
Pretty soon I’m going to need a calculator to keep track of all the medals the Canadian Olympians are going to win.
I know Canmore pretty well. For a few years I drove tractor-trailer once a week out of Calgary to Canmore, Banff, Lake Louise and various little places nearby, delivering groceries into stores and hotels for a company called Associated Grocers. Every day would be a different part of central and southern Alberta for me.
The work was way too hard.
But Canmore is really beautiful, kind of a working-class Banff.
Hurray for Mike Robertson. Snowboarding is a sport I’ve never done and chances are never will now. Anyway, I have to concentrate on being a gymnast and full-contact curler and probably don’t have the time.
