With Canada sealing the deal on the hockey game they set a record for most golds at a single Olympics.

What a fitting way to set the record, proving hockey belongs to Canada with Gold in both men's and women's.

A great day to be Canadian.

And before anyone brings up the USA medal count, yeah we get it you guys were the 1st loser and the second loser more then us but we have the most gold which is what really matters!

Curling shouldn't count as a sport, though, so that lessens the feat somewhat.


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I didn't know stating a fact was considered classlses?

Oh well we just set a record even with all our Canadian lack of class and poor sportsmanship. Results speak for themselves.

What? Curling is not only the 2nd best thing about the Winter olympics, but Sweden also beat Canada in the women's curling final.

However, Women's hockey shouldn't be in the Olympics that's a free gold for canada.

And I'm not sure exactly where canada got most of their golds, but I feel like all the different snowboard events have been very dominated by canada and the US.
there are constantly these new sports being added to the olympics, making it easier and easier to get a high medal count, especially for the big countries like US and Canada.

Haha don't even get started on stuff like this or I can bring up how long it took you guys to get into both world wars... but I wont start that topic, anyways I was making a disclaimer about the Americans who I knew would be in here saying that because its already been brought up a million times about their medal count.

The last two times they hosted the Olympics in fact. 1976 in Montreal and 1988 in Calgary. Both rousing successes for Canada.

Uhm, hockey belonged to Canada when they didn't win the gold. This notion of proving hockey belongs to Canada by defeating a team that has a rather large portion not even interested much in it, to me, reeks of insecurity, not pride. I'm definitely proud of Canada for what they did -- it was an outstanding olympics for them especially as a host nation, but I think I should note the behavior I see and the roots of it.

Than we can discuss the reasons America entered the wars. They did not enter late on purpose, that is just how the cards fell in to place.
