The tv ratings with a USA/Canada game are going to set records.

I don't even know what to say to that - ridiculous. Talk about creating controversy out of a nothing incident. I'm supposed to be offended because athletes from my country who have spent years training are celebrating a win stereotyping me? Good lord.

The woman in the clip is probably right though, nothing would have been said if it had been a men's team.

Party it up girls, you've worked hard, and you deserve it.


Time for curling.

I'm a Canadian, and am not in any way offended by that "impression." At least the woman in the centre was a voice of reason. Yes - we celebrate by drinking beer. Get over it.

People are ridiculous.

WE WON ANOTHER GOLD MEDAL!
Nicolien Sauerberij won the giant slalom in snowboarding. Whoa!!!
I believe this is the first time ever we won a (gold) medal on an alpine discipline (i.e. a discipline that does not involve ice and skates). Plus, it's our 100th gold medal ever (Summer and Winter Olympics combined).
She did excellent in the bad conditions (rain, foggy, etc.).

WOOHOO!!!

Well, they lost the semi-final to the USA, so the best they can get is bronze.

I think of the Netherlands, and I just imagine what a madhouse the swimming venue will be for London 2012.

In Canada, it will! I read the Canada-Russia game was the most watched sporting event in Canadian history so this would easily beat that.

As for the U.S., it might set 'hockey records' but that's about it.

Anyway, Slovakia's been the dark horse in this tournament and there have been plenty of upsets so I'm not putting my money on those @#$@# chokers just yet! (See what I did there, Iris? )

In honour of being Canadian and curling - I love this song. Curling as a metaphor for relationships, awesome.
