Your newest Olympic heartthrob

Ladies and gents, meet Alexandre Bilodeau, the first Canadian EVER to win a gold medal on Canadian soil. He captured the top prize in Moguls, which in my opinion, is an INSANE sport.

The story of his relationship with his disabled brother is touching, and watching his brother's reaction to his win was nothing short of tear-jerking. Not only is Alexandre the poster child for a huge heart and a beautiful soul, take a gander at that smile:

Not so bad, eh? If that smile and his story aren't enough to make girls around the world fall in love with him and put posters of him up in their lockers, I don't know what is. He's humble, he's honest, he's adorable, and he's damn good at what he does. How can he not be the sentimental hero of the Games thus far? Hope he enjoys the limelight because I have a feeling he's going to be seeing quite a bit of it. And good for him. I love it when athletes like this do well.

Damn you.

You had to know clicking that link would give me cheesy tears at work.

Sentimental Olympic heroism stories do it to me every time...

Thank goodness you didn't like to a McDonald's commercial.

And...that would be "link" not "like"

Yeah, I looked for a sappy McDonald's commercial, but it turns out that they're not interested in making neither you or I cry anymore.

Shame, eh?

And if the words alone made you teary, you should have seen the live events. It was seriously the sweetest thing ever. SOOOO genuine and touching.
