I agree. I like them too. They're unusual ... better than just a round disc.

this is USA's games, they're on home soil
lets not have the olympics in NA anymore, seems to give them the advantage
Canada did well in Italy last Olympics, this time, not so much

own the podium for fuck sakes

I wish the media would just give it a rest about all this own the podium and not winning medal stuff. It's pointless. People are dissapointed, but all of this analysis is overkill. Yesterday i was watching Duthie and that LaFlamme woman just go on and on about possibly 'why' Canada isn't winning medals at a record pace. I'll fucking tell you why: It's because the ski cross dude fell, it's because Hollingsworth had one bad run out of 4, it's because the the top 5-10 athletes in most sports are pretty much equal when it comes to their abilities. It's sports.... you can't guarantee wins and you can't win all the time. plain and simple.

Anyways, just because the ski cross dude fell and we don't have 9 medals doesn't mean that i haven't really enjoyed the Olympics so far and won't watch tomorrow. It REALLY isn't ALL about winning medals FFS - there's so much more to the games.

Also, most everyone will forget about the Olympics in 2 weeks and they'll go back to their normal lives of watching jeopardy at 7:30 and everything will be alright!

...oh and for the record, i've been thinking about the figure skating results and i've heard what so-called experts have had to say, and i officially back Plushenko now. That dude got robbed.... badly, badly robbed. That gold should really be his. He said in an interview that it's his dream to skate in the next Olympics in Russia and i hope he can do it. Plushenko is awesome.

Canada has 25 top 5 finishes and only 9 medals
I agree about the Olympics, in an couple weeks we'll forget about it
Olympics is sort of like flossing to me, I do it for a week before I visiting the dentist every year or two, then I spend the rest of my days not flossing
