    Vancouver Olympic Games Medals Results Sports : Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics

    We are not there yet, and might not be when all is said and done. However....

    Best Homer Simpson voice all... USA!! USA!! USA!!!

    I know it's just the "pussy" winter Olympics (on top of the fact that 'Olympics' is Greek for pussy) but STILL. Football is over and NASCAR does not start till Sunday so....


    it's what we got for now.


    Go USA. Go Canada. Go world!!! (extra GO to all the underdogs)

    Dunno if the above embed will work but we have our first gold and lead the medal count, so far with 4. (1 gold 1 silver and 2 meh's)

    On edit:

    Nope, I'm a retard so no embed, here's another (less cluttered) link though...

    Cool when that happens.

    Family ties tend to make me root for S. Korea, Poland, Canada, "Burma" and Mexico when I have to root for a non= U.S. person. Other than that, go underdogs.

    It would be nice if you actually did a chart.

    Medal counts are for morons.

    These counts give the same weight to a Bronze and Gold Medal

    Gold should get 5 points, Silver 3 and Bronze 1
