So where is the medal count bitch
« on: August 23, 2008, 03:59:03 am »
The US is leading in the count.
But losing in the gold count to China

The aussies arn't far behind and the UK in in the hunt.

Nice to see Italy in the top 10. 

So where is the bitch about medal count to population per country??

Where is Canada?

Will the US take gold in water polo or will Hungary retain its dominance? 


Where is the price and bitch about medal count??

Doesn no one care anymore about the olys?

I love the olympics.  But I care little for medal counts anymore.  I'm impressed with both the Chinese and Americans for doing so well, and am as proud of the Canadian medalists as I am of all the Canadian competitors.

That does raise the interesting question of how to judge the olympics. Different tally's are giving different answers. Obviously us media and chinese media will be biased either way.

Funny how the two most hated super powers dominate everything. It's all about funding, which Canada doesn't do nearly enough of.

It's all a waste of money - Australia's gold medals cost the taxpayer A$4.8 million... each...

Oh Canada, how you suck at sport.
We wave our pity at theeeeeeeee!!


Besides. According to what I saw on the net, Finnreich had 4 medals. Wow. We actually won a fucking medal? :o

Here's a better version:
Oh Finnreich, you suck major balls at sports!
Not even drugged to your eye-balls can you win!
This is not the place for witty retorts,
you shall always be the lowest in the biiiiin!


Now go care about something that actually matters. :P

The media is biased as hell.  The commentary is biased as hell.  Hell, even what they choose to show is influenced by sweaty nationalism.  I tuned into a baseball game broadcasted by MSNBC where the Americans were killing the Chinese 9-0 by the second inning.  It was a qualifying match.  Had the Ukranians been killing Samoa I doubt it would have ever made it to my tv.

I was pretty amused to see how the "total medal count" coverage was replaced by "medal count per population" coverage once I flew back to NL.  The Olympics are about proving your country is better.  At least we can all agree on that.

Top 10 would not have hurt ;)
Anything else is a bonus. It's not like they will get any worse soon.

Hmm.. top 20 is realistic. ;)
