[quote user="bandwgn86"][quote user="giantyankee1976"][quote user="bandwgn86"][quote user="giantyankee1976"]LOL....it's weird right?
I didn't think we would be this strong.
No arrogance mind you, just genuine surprise.
[/quote]i think Canada is just being a gracious host..it would be very rude of us if we hogged the medals lol [/quote]
I'll buy that. 
[/quote]Canada would have to medal in every event left to beat you by one for overall lead.. sounds real easy to me lol[/quote]</P>
Canada could easily have more medals... especially in speed skating.* But, 9 for Canada and 24 for USA isn't bad when you consider your population is 1/10th ours.</P>
As time goes by the US will get less medals in half-pipe, moguls, etc.*... the newer events.**Other countries will catch up to the US in these events*in coming Olympics.</P>
The addition of these*facilities (I'm not sure if the intention is to keep them all) *will only make the Canadians stronger in the future.* I see where a lot of US athletes, especially from the Northwest, have been using the facilities a lot, too.</P>[/quote]this is worse than bad. its embarassing. there must be a curse on home feild.. we usually get 20 or so medals, they've finally invested money in these athletes so finishing below 20 may put an end to that in a hurry
