How is Canada doing?

All things Olympic, be it the games themselves, economic impact, political comments, rants, raves . . . anything and everything Olympian goes here.

YES! And as the Bobsled teams were winding up for Bronze, Silver and Gold Medal wins, the stooopiddd bar wench put the blasting music back on and EVERYONE in the bar stood up and screamed, "NNOOOOOOOOOOO, OLYMPICs, OLYMPICs OLYMPICs...." In the face of overwhelming pressure we got to hear the full sound track......

So how is Canada really doing? Not just enthralled with Hockey.....

Call me sentimental, call me a homer, I don't care, but I just can't watch this video without tearing up, especially when they show the footage of Gretz cheering the 2002 gold medal win for the men's hockey - what an emotional victory that was. If Joannie gets a medal tomorrow night I am going to be pouring tears - and I don't care. Go Canada go!!!

While it took Canada 1.4 million to find it's lost metal in Winnipeg, it has taken Canada 6 billion to get 10 Medals.

Well, that appears to put Canada well in front for the gold platform, and only about five medals away from the goal of 30 in total. How many yet to be decided? Can Canada possibly get 5 more???

I don't think so - the last shot at gold we have is tomorrow in hockey - if we get that we set the record for most gold ever by anybody at a winter olympics, right now we are tied with Norway in 2002 and the scum-bag commies in the 1976 winter olympics with 13 golds. Way to go Canada!!

We rock. Man oh man, we rock. One gold away from the all time record for most golds won at an Olympics. 25 total medals as of right now. Suh-weet!

Yes, we have the record for most golds by a host team (10 being the previous record) and have tied the record for most golds at an Olympics (13). Winning the gold in men's hockey would certainly cap things off nicely tomorrow! Either way it's been a great performance by Canadian athletes.
