We had this same damn argument during the Summer Olympics. You basing medals on per captia.... If that's how it worked than China and India should be the worlds most athletic nations. I'm sorry Prax, that isn't how it works. I am sick and tired of you always bashing the US in the Olympics. Give some credit where credit is due! For you to always say this is beyond me, I understand you have pride for your country and I applaud that, but for Christ sake, be a gracious loser.
Think I'll have a wank over these tomorrow.
How about that hockey game? I didn't catch it until the 2nd period. The last 3 minutes of the game were extremely insane. Props to Miller tonight. Dude made ALOT of good saves, more so in the last 3 minutes when the score was 3 - 4.
Prax, your reasoning makes zero since. Your logic is simply, "The more people a country has the more medals they should win." Now, like I said this would mean China and India run away with everything. Now you turn it around and say that America is full of smug winners etc etc etc and that Canada should be praised because they have so few people yet wins so many medals. That's not how it works..... I don't turn on the nightly sports report and see people dividing medals by population. So if were using your mathematically equation this means Austria who is currently tied with Canada in the medal count is the best nation in the Olympics. They have a little over 8 million people yet they have 8 medals. So that's about one medal for every 1 million people! So in essence along with your theory that they are the GREATEST NATION EVER~!~! ZOMG!Now, lets get back to reality. We both know Austria isn't the best nation in the Olympics. I don't know who is, winning a medal does have lots of variables that go along with it and we both know this. Yet you want to justify Canada not being in first on some kind of bullshit and then you want to call the USA smug winners? Prax, seriously brother.... Your better than that and with what your saying comes off as some anti-American rhetoric.
One thing I've noticed from Americans at these games and prior games is that they don't necessarily take pride in winning, they take pride in beating others. And that's exactly what's happening here. You'd have to be blind to ignore the comment that Narc posted about americans "renting the podium" from Canadians during the games.
I would write some huge retort to your last 2 posts Prax.... But, your exhausting and will keep trying to push that your opinion is superior to everyone else in this thread. With that out of the way what Narco said is very true. There are only a handful of states that produce winter Olympians. The vast majority of the country doesn't have many places where one could hone there curling skills (closet curling club to me is 4.5 hrs away.) Now closest ski resort? That's 4 hrs away also and is only open from middle December til March. If I wanted to be a pro skier or snowboarder my chances are slim. Point is this, Canadians have a lot more of an opportunity to peruse things like this. Argue this point too, but I will close on this. The USA has 300,000 registered hockey players with US Hockey.... Now our population is roughly 300,000,000. Now that's a small percentage for players to population and with such a small pool USA shouldn't be that good at hockey..... Yet last night we beat the people who invented the sport and are synonymous with the word hockey.
What do Canada and the Titanic have in common? They both looked good until they hit the ice.
