Yah hoo Canada!!!!

Postby Kensei » Sun Feb 28, 2010 5:16 pm

First off, Way to go Canada, for those that dont know, not only did we beat a Great Hockey team to win gold, we did it in overtime and both teams looked good. We also (canada) now have two records to watch, the most gold Medals in a Winter olympics and the biggest come back from a week first weak to a great second week.

Now, This should answer a few questions, we had a rough start but Canada did great, so did the rest of the teams that came out. I am so happy to be Red and White tonight!

it was great for everyone. I do have to say that your poke about the most medals was funny....especially seeing as you have a population ten times larger than us and your last medal count looked pretty much like a country the same size as Canada...Maybe next wintergames you guys can really do well...hey maybe you guys can even get a few more golds! keep the faith!

It was a great showing by everyone and we all showed that we dont mind the image that some people have of us, it just reflects our sense of humor! Glad to be good hosts for everyone!

it was one death but numerous poepl were intimidated by the course. and for good reason too. i think there was a pretty good two-man bobsled that overturned. cant remember everything though.

im not sure i think it could have been pratially due to the downhill slope of it making riders accelerate too high. just mt two cents and guess.

The runs were designed by the association that was in charge of the specific sport not "canada" so the issue is....does the association not have some responsibility? My understanding was the run was designed specifically for the Speed and excitment of the run...and the association is letting the Canadians take the heat. It was said by a VOC official that the run was not designed by Vancouver officials, but they did not go into detail.

yea i know it wasnt the fault of canada. some of the organizaztion issues may reflect canada more than the design of the course, which imho is the biggest issue bc it deals with safety, not glamour.
