Own the Podium - the numbers to watch...

Two days to go.

Canada currently has tied it's highest gold medal count in any olympics (the 1984 Summer Olympics, which were notably boycotted by the USSR & allies).

We currently have the highest number of gold medals at THIS olympics.

We are three gold medals shy of the highest number of gold medals ANY country has ever won in a Winter Games.

We have surpassed our second highest total (17 in Salt Lake City) Winter Olympics count, and are three medals shy of our highest medal count of 24 (in Turin).

We are guaranteed a medal in each of men's curling, hockey and men's team pursuit (skating) - silver or gold.  (In other words we ARE going to tie our highest medal count, and if we were to take gold in all three we'd tie the highest gold count ever.)

In addition to this we are sitting second in 4 man bobsleigh after two runs - another promising medal...

And there is still the men's alpine slalom; men's parallel giant slalom to be run.

I'm going to have to say it again... go fuck yourself Brian.

Hear, hear!

It's easy to complain at the start, but now almost no one is questioning OTP.
