I’ve been living in Canada for less than a year, so I’m still getting a hang of all the nuances to residence in a super chill country. One of those things is a day like today, where something so transparent that it is literally called Civic Holiday exists solely as a reason for a long weekend. In the spirit of every Illinois kid’s favorite made-up holiday, Casimir Pulaski Day, it’s totally fine with me.
As such, things are going to be slow around these parts today. We’ll still have some posts trickle out — and we’re recording a podcast after Team USA’s game tonight — but you’ll have to wait until tomorrow for our regularly scheduled blogging.
In the meantime, enjoy this clip of Patty Mills hitting a buzzer-beating three to beat Russia, who were leading their preliminary group. It’s the best Civic Holiday present Leigh could ever hope for and I’m sure you’ll like it too.
