Well the Winter Olympics are well under way…anyone watching it regularly, or just bits on the news? Nice to see that Team GB bagged the first medal, and gold at that! The Mens' Curling from 1924! Eighty two years on the IOC agreed to look into the matter after the Glasgow Herald filed a claim on behalf of the families of the team...but at least the current team has started well (I like the 'roundel' they use as the target) and the Women Curlers (???) are starting their Olympic title defense with winning ways too.
None of this is really my thing except for the ice-hockey, the 2nd best sport on the planet...I wonder will Canada ever produce another Wayne Gretzky, one of my heros from the 1980's(pictured)? However, as the usual suspects take the lead (and most of the top ten positions) in the medals table it’s nice to see South Korea with 3 medals already...doesn’t that make you think we are doing SOMETHING wrong? Shouldn’t we be trying a little harder: is it funding? Is it skill? Where are we going wrong? Whatever, we’re not lacking confidence: check out the position of the medal table here...loud and proud!
