Fuck Canada Pt. 3: You May Have Beat Us In Hockey, But Who Got The Most Medals???

Ok, Ok... So the USA Mens Hockey team fell short in their quest for gold in Vancouver against rival and host country Canada. But it wasn't for lack of effort, thats for sure. They tied the game at 2-2 with 20 seconds in regulation. 20 seconds. Then they lost in overtime after a wonderful goal by NHL superstar Sydney "Syd the Kid" Crosby. These were the two best teams in the tournament, both with their entire rosters made up of NHL players. They were the teams that were supposed to be in the finals, and they both played hard. After the Canadian Women's Hockey team beat USA the other night for the gold medal, many Americans were rooting for the men to avenge that loss. But in reality, the Canadian Men and Women were both the favorites in the Olympics to win Gold Medals, and they did. But overall, the USA came out on top of the medal count... and that is all that really matters, right?

Despite the fact that they outnumber Germany 205-153 in the number of athelets participating in Vancouver, Canada came in third overall in the medal standings. The US had the most atheletes competing at 215, and they finished at the head of the pack for only the second time in their history at the Winter Olympics. The 37 medals that the USA did win were also a record for our country, the most medals we have ever won at one Olympic game. Congratulations to all the atheletes from all the countries who competed in these Winter Olympics, and especially to the USA Olympic Teams who repped for our country hard and came out on top. Here is the final medal count:

CANADA- 14 GOLD, , 5 BRONZE = 26
