not in medal tally, but in the way our victories are effecting us as a nation. It's impossible to know, but how could any other country possibly feel more pride than Canadians are feeling right now? It's amazing!

Yes!! I hear ya!

I went downtown Lindsay here... one short street.. but still everyone was still honking their horns.. an hour later! Maybe due to a lack of nothing better to do up here in Lindsay.. but hey I think it happened everywhere in Canada

I am totally happy the figureskating is over at last!!!!!

Now we just have to put up with 4 years of figureskaters and speedskaters on McCain and Tim Hortons commercials...

Go for the taste!

Yeah, the commercials are cheesy.

Especially when elvis does a skate routine, and then stops on the ice, and starts to drink a glass of McCain Iced Tea

Where the fouk did he get that from? He didn't go over to the side to grab it!!

Same thing with a Ronaldo Parmalat commercial over in Europe.

Jeez

:p

after a judging error it was found that all the athletes participating in these olympics were found guilty of cheating. including yuo!

as a result, all medals will be awarded to the appropriate backup sporting winnars:


American Ken Peterson - Speed Croquet


Russian Olav Pretrik - One Man Checkers


German Petra Petra - Giant Pill Swallowing


Canadian Joe Stanard - Skeleton

Congratualations to all the winnars!

it's so funny. it's almost as if today, people forgot that they had other events besides hockey.... winning that is all that matter anyways.... why do you think it was on right before closing ceremonies.

i must add that it was nice to beat the tar out of the americans in both finals. they tried to be home town heros, but we set the record straight.....

oh, and downtown is fucking crazy.... party in tha street!!!!

I was thinking about this while waiting for the game to start. I feel it has a lot to do with Hockey. I don't believe you'd have the entire nation watching any one given event such as you saw today with the hockey game. Fans everywhere, packed into bars, empty hockey arenas, you name it, all cheering with such pride for our game and our Canadian Team. Every commercial on TV from some sponsor for the 2002 Canadian Olympic team was some hockey commercial!

What you say is totally true (we are a hockey nation), but imo, it's more than that. We won based on the way our figure skaters behaved with class in the face of events out of their control, and how the world noticed; we won by pride in our speed skaters, Catriona was expected/delivered, Marc Gagnon the powerhouse (who knew?), and the new names like Clara Hughes; we celebrated underdogs like Beckie Scott; and who ever heard of our women aerialists? silver/bronze, amazing! Jennifer Robinson, it goes on and on. But we know their names, and celebrate all of them! Our achievements are significant to us.

And/because it's all relative; our comparative is the athletic juggernaut of the US. ten times the talent pool, who knows how many times the budget, and less than 2x the medals. It's no contest, we win. The hockey gold sweep just completes it so well! :)

"Maybe we'll get one guy to hold one of his arms and another guy to hold his other arm and then hope our three guys can outplay their other four."

so good.

Christ, the amount of "we's" and "our's" you used, you'd think you actually did more than swig beer for the last two weeks...

We did nothing. Some people got together and some of them slid down some hills faster than others, and received accolades. Athletes get way too much credit for doing what amounts to basically nothing but hype.

Whoooopee.

i personally think the luge and skeleton and bobsledding are the stupidest "sports" ever

how much control do you REALLY have in the "skeleton" ?

they basically give a nice a push at the start and hope for the best

that's not racing, that's "who can be stiff like a board"

random winners

at the olympic level, the winners aren't chosen based on skill, they're chosed based on random occurences

that's pretty stupid.
