So how are your teams doing, Slovenian teams are beating expectations as always

Im realy proud of our hockey team even though at best they will fiinsh 7th or at worst 8th. Its because we only have 150 registered hockey players in my country Making this an epic feat.

As fare as the medal count goes 2 gold from Tina Maze Ladies downhill and giant slalom. But she is more machine than athlete i doubt there is any woman competitor that can match her stats. Ef she just wasnt a cop in her day job she would be the perfect woman

A brinze and silver from Peter Pevc, we always had good skie jumpers though lately nothing as good as the glory days of primo¾ peterka

Vesna Fabians a bronze medal in cross country ladies sprint

and a bronze from Teja Gregorin in Women's Pursuit, biathlon

So in total 2 gold, 1 silver, 3 bronze medals and hopefully one more medal in snowboarding. nod bad for a country with a population of 2 million.

For Canadians, if we don't win the gold in hockey it's the end of the world. In any other event we aim for 12th place and are happy with 6th.

I am a little upset that we will be meeting the Canadian team (most likely) in the semi-final game instead of the gold medal game as it should be. With that being the case, my guess is that whoever wins that semi will go on to win the gold. Although, I would much rather prefer a Canada vs. US rematch for the gold from last Olympics. Oh well...21 medals so far, with 7 golds. USA making a strong showing of ourselves like normal.

Um so i guess it must be the wine but it looks like that ®an Ko¹ir won the bronze. Um nope the wine has nothing to do with it he did win the bronze. And no Americans in the top 4 of snowboard mens parallel slalom.

As much as Canadians love the hockey gold, it's even better when we can win it from the Americans. Or the Russians.

you cant win any more gold medals as you will jump from 18th place to 15 in the medal count and thusly push Slovenia to 16th place.

Uh-oh...
So, I am watching the Canada score right now and am quite surprised that Latvia is holding it to a tie game into the third period. Is Canada going to be the big upset in this one???

Re: Uh-oh...
Never mind...Canada holds off Latvia for the victory 2-1. Time for the U.S. to meet up against the best competition they will see during these Olympics (at least in Hockey). Going to pick it here and now....the winner of the Semifinals match-up between the U.S. and Canada will go on to gold.

Apparently Latvia contributed a lot to the former Soviet Union's hockey prowess.

As one of Canada's players put it, it only takes one goal to win. We may have twenty of the top scorers in the NHL but you only need one scorer to beat us.
