    Men's moguls

    I love watching moguls, though I don't understand the judging system (well, then people could love figure skating too, if not understanding COP)

    Aren't they just amazing athletes/showmen? Love the slow motion pictures.

    I am rooting for Jesper Björnlund, who grew up in my small village But GO ALL

    Me too! LOVE the beauty! Love it!!!! The speed, dynamic jumps, and beautiful twists and back flip! In particular, I am really loving men's! I tend to enjoy ladies in FS better, but moguls, definitely men!! The dynamic, big jumps and the speed are just simply incredible! I just watched the qualification this morning. Oh, I wish if I could watch the final on time! But I am now at work (why am I on this site? hehe, just warming up).

    TICKED!!! As an Australian, I am ticked that Beggs-Smith, did not win!!!! I thought that he had the better run, and it says alot about a guy who started and runs his own company to pay for his sport. Winter medals are hard for Aussies to come by so gold from him would have meant alot, and he is born in Canada, so it would have been the same thing anyway. EXCEPT I would have been able to sing ADVANCE AUSTRALIAN FAIR!!!!!

    I know the Party Line so far has been, "Oh that Gold Medal is coming and etc, etc, etc...", but they aren't fooling this fan. A HUGE monkey got dropkicked off of Cypress Mountain and into the Pacific Ocean earlier tonight and you can't tell me every single Canadian Favourite didn't take a deep sigh of relief after hearing the news.

    What a performance, Valentine's Day Present to Canada and Belated Birthday Present to his older brother who suffers from Cererbal Palsy.

    I was choked up several times tonight, but it wasn't until Alex's entire family joined him and Brian Williams and they surprised him w/Darren Dutchysen bringing in a bottle of Bubbly and those little plastic wine glasses. Dutchie opened up the bottle and then did the honours of fillling the little glasses, w/Alex passing them off to his Family. Now Fredrick normally doesn't drink Alchcol, but after having his first sip of the Champange, Fredrick went, "Mmmmmm!!!!"

    Brian then told Alex to tell Fredirick in French, that it's tradition for the first person given a glass to make a toast w/, is the person who makes the toast. His voice is a bit garbled due to his Cerebral Palsy being so severe, even I was able to hear him say in French to his brother, "Congratulations Olympic Champion!!"

    Now that finished me off and the emotion really hit me and I started to bawl!!!

    Congratulations Alexandre!! Thank you for the wonderful Valentine's Present you gave to all of us tonight!!!

    Couldn't it have been both? We've won gold medals at every single games since Calgary (whereas before that our record was spotty - yes in Sarejevo and Innsbruck, no in Lake Placid and Sapporo), and I don't think there's anyone who thought we wouldn't here. But knowing that it's been done, yeah - that monkey certainly got drop kicked into the ocean. I'm more interested now in seeing if "Own the Podium" continues in other guises for the next four years (and onwards).

    Congratulations Alexandre Bilodeau - Gold!

    Well, it was long overdue. Alexandre Bilodeau( from Quebec) is the first Canadian to win Gold on home soil. It was really exciting to watch. What a nice young man.
