Canada Owns the Gold Podium!


Just one more post about the Olympics!

The last two times that Canada hosted the Olympics (Montreal 1976 and Calgary 1988), we didn't win a single gold medal on home turf. So that was our goal this time -- to win a gold medal at home. We didn't really mean to win the most gold medals of any country participating in the 2010 Games. And we didn't really mean to win the most gold medals ever won at any Winter Olympics by a single country. It just happened, honest!

But oh, how sweet it is! So we're just going to bask in this glory for a little while, okay? Like, until the end of time!!

Congrats to you and Canada. I didn't watch much of it. I love baseball, but not much else in sports.

Loved the Olympics.. didn't enjoy the CTV 'Entertainment Tonight' style coverage though... the athletes were amazing - 14 gold medals!! I loved the finale - Sidney Crosby scoring in overtime - wow!!! But over $6Billion over budget saddens me... our future generations will pay for these gold medals with their lack of prosperity... sorry to be a downer.

I was pulling for Canada to win the hockey game and that made for quite a messy evening. My husband is under the impression I'm a communist now. So congrats, Canada. Thanks for ruining my marriage. Also? Giant inflatable beavers and Nickelback, Canada? I'm so disappointed in you...
