    Mark the day February 17, 2010 in an Olympic history book. Then hold it up as a benchmark for future days, because it may well have been the single greatest day the U.S. Olympic team has ever had at a Winter Olympics...

    and I watched hte opening ceremonies. It was a complete joke. Just terrible. They really overplayed the aboriginal factor, and I know there are people who think all of Canada is like that.

    I never really look a sporting events like the olympics as "Pass"/"Fail" events.

    If a athlete "Succeeds" it has nothing to do with his/her country, as in most cases, the country doesn't do crap for them to get them were they are at now.

    Additionally, most of these athletes are around each other and spend so much time with each other that there really isn't that hated competitive kindof thing going on, unless of course you watch the guys in sequins and feathers spinning about.

    There doesn't seem to be much drama and intrigues between the athletes, but there are some important exceptions. The biggest one is probably the rivalry between the Swedes and the Norwegians. Especially in cross country skiing where the Norwegian best skier, Petter Northug ("North Thug") Jr. is like Ocho Cinco is to skiing, or Mayweather Jr. is to boxing. He loves to trash talk the Swedes.

    He got bronze in the sprint to days ago, but he said that beating Sweden's best sprinter was better than gold.
