Yesterday we held the Thomson Family Olympics at the farm. Two teams of seven participated in badminton, soccer, swimming relays, frisbee, capture the flag, and a scavenger hunt. My team (dubbed Feel Good Inc. as a shout out to the Gorillaz) kicked ass in the soccer game and lost almost everything else quite cheerfully. During our much-needed siesta I caught a few snippets of Ian Millar's spectacular ride in the first round of the team show jumping, and I just read that the Canadians won the silver today -- Millar's first medal in nine olympic appearances. Televised coverage of the equestrian events has been dismal in Canada, so thank goodness (yet again) for the Internet.
