I missed a couple of days of score keeping because the Olympics wouldn’t be considerate of my flu and kept going while I couldn’t – sheesh! Luckily, Canada decided to ease off on the medal winning so it wouldn’t look like I was shirking my responsibility.
Nothing happened on Day 6 and then Patrick Chan won another Silver in Men’s Free Skate, bringing his personal total to a pair of Silver Medals destined to be some bad-ass cuff-links.
An honourable mention goes out to the Men’s Hockey Team who delivered one heluva third period against the U.S. I tuned into the game a few minutes into the third with the Americans up 1-0 and then BAM! Canada showed them the rockets red glare!
Today on the other hand, not only did my flu subside, but Denny Morrison won a Bronze Medal in Men’s 1500m Speed Skating. Like Patrick Chan, Denny could make some cuff-links as well but I think he’d be better or winning another so he’ll have a matching pair.
A bit of a quiet day for Canada unless drug-testing is now an Olympic sport! It seems that Canada is being targeted for excessive drug-testing. It seems it’s becoming a common misconception that everyone in Canada smokes crack! It’s sad that crackaletes like Rob Ford make it look so acceptable. Hey Olympic committee, it’s only the Toronto sortof-mayor, OK? But just to be safe, don’t check the snowboarders bags.
On the brighter side, the shiny like silver side that is, Canada picks up another medal. Canada earned a silver medal in team figure skating. Kaetlyn Osmond, Patrick Chan, Kevin Reynolds, Meagan Duhamel, Eric Radford, Kirsten Moore-Towers, Dylan Moscovitch, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir won silver medals in the new Team Figure Skating competition but if the rumours are true about corrupt judges from Russia and the U.S. they might get an upgrade…aw, who am I kidding the judges are always suspect and nothing ever comes of it and besides, that little Russian kid was pretty awesome!
