    I have a large selection of "I Took Part" or "I Tried Hard" or "Great Effort" ribbons and medals "won" by my kids over the years in school sports events where winners and losers aren't allowed any more in case it damages their self esteem.

    i have a rack of those stupid iron on patches they used to give kids after making them do a bunch of exercises.. i guess it was a fitness census or something. Every year growing up in elementary school we had to do a 1 k run, a 5 k run, long jump, relay and other crap.. and then you got a bronze, silver or gold embroidered patch at the end a couple weeks later.

    no matter how hard i tried, how fast i ran, or what i did, i always got silver. Never gold.

    But on here you found your niche! Here you are mostly gold! Because of your poor spelling phobia, it was hard not to spell that "goal"!! We had a trainer one time that actually sent out an email saying "What are our golds"!!

    Poor Canada.

    I think it's funny athletes from countries like Togo have managed to win a medal, yet a nation of 30+ million can't produce an athlete capable of a third place finish in any event.

    I think Canada should be proud. It just means that unlike Australia they haven't wasted hundreds of millions of dollars of tax payer money in the pursuit of sporting excellence.

    Actually, the sad part is Canada woefully underfunds its athletes.. i mean these kids can't barely get a couple hundred a month from the gov, and they're training every day on top of going to school and somehow working to help pay for it all

    It's actually pathetic, and i'm surprised we ever win anything. Canada needs to do more.

    Ah!

    Oh my god, they killed Kenny!

    Times have changed, our kids are geting worse.
    They won't obey their parents, they just wanna fart and curse!
    Should we blame the government, or blame society?
    Or should we blame the images on TV?

    NO! Blame Canada, Blame Canada
    It seems that everything's gone wrong,
    since Canada came along
    Blame Canada, Blame Canada
    We need to form as full assault, it's Canada's fault

    Don't blame yourself for your son Stan,
    He saw that darn cartoon and now he's off to join the Klan!
    and my boy Eric once had my picture on his shelf,
    but now when he sees me, he tells me to (gasp) myself

    Blame Canada, Blame Canada
    Because when Canada is gone,
    There'll be no more Celine Dion
    Blame Canada, Blame Canada
    They're not even a real country anyway

    Kenny could've been a doctor or a lawyer, it's true
    instead he burned up like a piggy on the barbecue
    Should we blame the matches? Should we blame the fire?
    or the doctors who allowed him to expire?

    HECK NO! Blame Canada, Blame Canada
    with all their Hockey hallabaloo, and that bitch Anne Murray too
    Blame Canada, Blame Canada
    all I can say is oy Gevalt, it's Canada's Fault

    EVERYBODY!!

    Blame Canada, Blame Canada
    With Brain Adams' Beady Eyes
    Margret Trudeau's friendly thighs
    Blame Canada, Shame on Canada!

    For the smut we must stop!
    The trash we must smash!
    The laughter and fun,
    this will be undone!
    We must blame them and cause a fuss
    before somebody thinks of blaming us!!!

    and last but not least....... the video
    YouTube - South Park - Blame Canada (with lyrics)

    i dont hate Canada. I've googled and found this Canadian Olympian who will be getting an olympic Medal on Saturday. Depending on the outcome of her championship game. ROOT FOR Carol Huynh. say it with me Carol Huynh

    Fucking hell, finally guaranteed a silver or gold.

    I've pretty much written off these olympics, bring on Vancouver.

    On a totally different note, is it wrong that I watch gymnastics and was wishing I was in the audience with an airhorn??

    I cannot stand T Lewis, each time she loses we always hear an excuse. First she needs to make the finals then talk...

    I think Canada's forte is winter sports, not summer sports. Canada always does itself proud at the winter Olympics.

    I'm surprised that the Canadians have been shut out of the medals so far, but that should only encourage them to try harder in 2012.

    She didnt make it into the finals and was crying on camera while being interviewed. I guess that means everyone who beat her is on roids!

    I think a lot of these athletes believe their own hype and the massive ego massage they get from the media at home. Blaming alleged drug cheats instead of accepting her own shortcomings is tacky and childish but it's what we've come to expect from these track divas these days.
