Helpless in the grip of an overwhelming urge to comment, I must make this observation: Canada currently leads the 2010 Winter Olympics in gold medal count!
Let me note the date and time: Feb. 27, 2010, at 5:36pm Eastern Daylight Savings Time. We all know that these numbers will change.
The http://www.vancouver2010.com/olympic-medals/ ranks the leaders in total medals, currently:
- USA with 8 gold (35 total);
- Germany with 10 gold (28 total);
- Canada in third place with 12 ! gold (23 total);
- Norway with 8 gold (21 total);
- and 20 other countries.
Apparently this is an Olympic record for the number of gold medals won in a Winter Games by the host country.
So here are:
- Quiet and dignified “Huzzahs” for the Canadian athletes.
- Congratulations to all who qualified, competed and won for their countries.
- “Let’s keep funding our athletes” to the politicians who hold those pursestrings.
