I can not believe how much has come from this. The O-Committee should award the pair skaters from Canada the gold medal after one judge said they were pressured to give it to the Russsians.

The story breaking right now according to Christine Brennan of USA Today is that the Referee has the right under the rules to remove a judge due to an impropriety in the scoring and replace that judge with an alternate judge. In this case it is the French judge who will get replaced by the Czech judge. The Czech judge had the Canadian Pair in 1st so the Gold Medal would be awarded to Canada.

But it's figure skating, the most crooked sport this side of Boxing, so who knows what will happen.

They gave Sale/Peltier a gold medal today, but didn't take the russians medal away, which IMO is really gay. How can two pairs get gold in the same event? That's just dumb.

I agree that there shouldn't be two gold medals, but I don't think the Canadians should get it, the judges picked the Russians and whether it was a crooked judge or not, that's who they picked. I just think they should stop calling ice skating a "sport" and call it a "contest". Since that's what it is. A sport has a score, or is won by being the fastest or getting done first. A contest is why whoever is in charge simply chooses whoever they want.

I heard a good email on some radio show today. They said, "What's all the controversary about the Canadians winning the gold medal. Wouldn't the gold medal only be worth silver in Canada anyway?"

I'm just so sad that this was all resolved before I had a chance to put a giant Canadian flag in my .sig so that I could show my support for that brave nation during their time of tragedy.

Well, it's not too late. The figure skating tragedy has been averted, but the hockey tragedy is just beginning, at least if the game against Sweden is any indication. We're emotionally attached to our figure skaters, but if we don't medal in hockey the entire country is going on Prozac.

It should be pointed out that this is not the first time that a Canadian has been awarded a delayed Gold medal. The last time was in synchronized swimming, although that was awarded two or three years after the event.

Well, I'm a PROUD CANADIAN...but I know that figure skating is gayer than Billy & Chuck in a bubble bath... (Damn, that IS gay...) But hey, Pelletier and Sale (and Sale's cute ass...mmmm) got their medals, and their respect, so what's left to complain about? THE COMMUNIST CONSPIRACY AGAINST CANADA...or stuff... Well, I'll shut up about the Communists until Canada gets screwed in Men's Hockey... For now...

At least we can all herald the new Australian Speed Skating champion for his fine performance.

You know he'd been using that strategy in the short track event for years, lagging behind, hoping for a pile-up. It finally paid off.





Bill Savage went over to the (Stu Hart) house and one of the Hart kids was running around with his hair wet. Savage asked why his hair was wet. Stu said, "The little bastard broke a vase this morning, so I stuck his head in the toilet. Want me to show you again?"

I'd have to go with Haim also, starred in 2 of the best horror movies of all time (Lost Boys and Silver Bullet) and to me has always seemed like the more likable of the two guys. E!
