The Vault Has Been Opened!

We finally have our gold medal! Now our athletes can settle in and win more. The vault has been opened and our athletes are ready to grab more gold, silver and bronze.

Canada's Bilodeau wins gold in men's moguls

Alexandre Bilodeau carved his way into Canadian history Sunday at the Vancouver Winter Olympics.

The 22-year-old from Rosemère, Que., became the first Canadian to win an Olympic gold medal at home, finishing first in the men's moguls skiing final at Cypress Mountain.

No Canadians won gold at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, and the country was shut out again at the 1988 Winter Games in Calgary.

Let's enjoy the moment, and all other medals we get.

Those protesters should be locked up until the Olympics are over. They should also be put on watch lists for both Canada and the US. Wouldn't they be surprised to find out that their stupidity has consequences.

Went to the mall today and bought myself some of those Liberal Olympic mitts, too bad they were made in China. The Olympic stuff was flying off the shelves.

Good job Alex, you made Canada very proud! Who's next?

Wait a minute! You hate Quebeckers! You've said it many times here. Suddenly, you're all fuzzy bunny in love with the belle province when they win you a medal?

Go Canada Go

Now that I am retired, I can watch all day long ... even though there are a lot of reruns.

Great story about Alex and his older brother Frederic. His "little sister" also did the pre-run for the ladies moguls. Great family story.

Another silver in snowboarding today. When one looks at the times between gold and 5 or lower it is so close.
