It is that time of the week again. It is time to look at my favorite newspaper front page of the week.
As always, I culled through the front pages shown at Newseum.org and picked my favorite.
So here it is:
Of course, it helps that the paper has a cool front page to go along with today’s special occasion.
First, I like how clean this design is. It isn’t cluttered. In fact, it’s rather empty, but the vast emptiness does exactly what was I surmise was intended — to point out that hosting the Olympics is a big deal.
Of course, the “Go Far” with the Canadian Maple Leaf is a bit homerish and clearly rooting for the homeland, but in this case, I think that is OK. Why shouldn’t they have pride in and support their own Olympic athletes?
My favorite part of this page, though, is the flag. I love how they used the Olympic torch to make the “i” of Province. It’s clever but not gaudy.
Seeing this front page was a wonderful surprise for me this morning.
I love the Olympics. I generally prefer the Summer Games, but any Olympic meet is a joy for me to watch.
My favorite Winter Game, though, is curling. I don’t know what it is about those floor-sweeping devils, but I can’t get enough.
