Bilodeau Gets His Gold


Most everyone knows by now that Canada’s bad streak of never having won an Olympic Home Medal on home soil was broken over the weekend by Men’s Moguls competitor Alexandre Bilodeau. At the official medals ceremony today, Alexandre was presented with his gold while the Canadian crowd cheered on!


Pairs Figure Skating


Figure-skating couple Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo did something many countries only dream of doing – breaking Russia’s 46-year hold on Olympic Gold in Pairs Figure Skating. The duo came out of retirement to try for the fourth time to win the Olympic event. And … they did it! Now the husband and wife team plan to retire and start a family.


Men’s Downhill Skiing


Team USA’s Bode Miller finished his downhill run during the men’s mountainside event with an amazing time of just 1.54.40 seconds. Unfortunately, he was not quick enough to catch the Swiss skiier Didier Defago, who beat Bode for the gold by just .09 of a second.


Men’s Snowboard Cross


The second Gold Medal for the USA was won today by Seth Wescott in the Men’s Snowboard Cross - a riding competition that involves a winding downhill race between four boarders, complete with jumps. At the end of the race, when he found out he had won, Seth draped himself with an American flag that his late grandfather had given to him.


Women’s Hockey


Two big games were played today in Women’s Ice Hockey, one between Sweden and Slovakia and the other between Canada and Switzerland. As expected, Team Canada’s girls took the game, shutting out the Swiss 10-1. The first game was a bit closer, though, and Sweden really had to play hard to beat Slovakia 6-2.


Men’s Hockey


Today was a big day, one lots of people have been waiting for. The first of the Men’s Hockey games was played at Canada Hockey Place between Team Canada and Norway. Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo started on his home ice and Team Canada did not disappoint, with an 8-0 victory over Norway.


Laid To Rest


While there was much to celebrate today, there was also something to mourn. Members of the Vancouver Georgian community and Olympic officials and athletes gathered at First Memorial Funeral Home in Vancouver to mourn Nodar Kumaritashvili, a Georgian luger who died Friday, Feb. 12 after crashing during a training run in Whistler, B.C.

    Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)

The highest I go is about the middle of the pitch :p :p :p So basically you play more of an attacking right midfield? That's interesting.  I'm guessing you play a 4-2-3-1 ? I play RM and LM. I'm a Box to box midifielder though. I rarely go through to the middle and I play wide.
