No special red mittens for 2010 Paralympics

Too bad that the 2010 Paralympics don't have their own gear.

Not only has the media left in droves, only Olympic logo wear will be available at Hudson's Bay Company.

You won't be able to find a pair of Paralympic red mittens in the mix.

The 2010 Paralympics, playing out in Vancouver-Whistler from March 12-21, are certainly not seeing the crowds or garnering the attention as did the 2010 Winter Olympics.

I attended the Opening Ceremony in Vancouver on Friday night, and it was both down-home and heartfelt.

A good cure for the Olympic hangover. Go Paralympics!
