I have just watched Evan win his gold medal. I'm still cheering. Weir was cheated. He skated beautifully and should have been third. I'm thrilled. I didn't think I would watch as much of the programs, but I have watched every event except "curling." Last time I checked, we had a total of 18 medals - more than any other country. Sorry, Obama, guess you can't bash us for not being the best this time around. Go America.

marine2211, we're not the best in everything. If we were, we'd run into a rut by not trying hard enough to catch up in education, high-tech, healthcare, human rights, standards of living, energy conservation, green tech, and public transit investment. Oh wait, we have, but the conservatives still don't realize it! I guess they think that if they just keep *saying* we're the best, it will magically come true! Luckily figure skating has nothing to do with Obama, but I think you already knew that!

Hope two great foreigners come up in the chat:
The most excellent, charismatic Torah Bright.
Anja Paerson, who got beat to a pulp in a scary crash landing after going through the air 160 feet in the Downhill through air and landing hard. Bruised over half her body, needing help to get dressed and walking with difficulty - she somehow came back the day after for one of the hardest-earned Bronzes in Winter Olympics history.
