Congrats to the poms...if you can't win a gold in the sport you invented then what hope is there :P

Um, Tower...hate to break it to you laddie there can only be one queen of the Commonwealth, and that's Torah Bright :P Amy might be on some kind of arcane succession to the throne in the home countries but as Australia is a Commonwealth with no regnant Queen she gets that particularly appellation.

Seriously, how good is it that we can both beat the bejesus out of the Yanks :P

Let's not get too excited. Canada still haven't walked out of the Commonwealth. Methinks if Christine Nesbitt can make good her promise, she and Canada might legitimately claim queen of the Commonwealth. As we will in Oz will claim her too!

:P

She ain't yours. Canadian raised and trained. All ours, you can keep dale begg-smith though.

She was interviewed on Oz TV yesterday. I don't think I've ever heard a more Canuck accent.

At least Torah's kept her strine twang.

Michael Douglas got DQed before the third run because of a technicality. <_<

Ya, that's such a heart-breaker, especially since these are his first, and most likely last, Olympics. He had a chance at the medals, no less...

Well, day 8 turned out o.k. after all. What a run by Montgomery, and what a run by Dukurs, too. Just a total nail-bitter, tough I am a tad bummed that Latvia hasn't won its first gold.

Oh well, at least its a Canadian that got it instead :lol:

Congrats Canada! Bet that eases the earlier pain.

So, does that put you guys back on track?

Yeah it does.

It looks like we'll win a few more medals tomorrow both in Long Track Speed Skating and Short Track. Hopefully we get on a role.

Whilst I gotta pass on a big congrats to our Canuck brethren, I'm sorry to see that Latvia missed out on its first Winter Olympic gold. Plus, if the Dukurs brothers had won medals together would have been quite the notable event in Olympic history/trivia.

Looks like the 'Own The Podium' program is improving from its 'lease back the podium' beginnings :)

There's a rumour that the Canadians have lodged a second protest against Amy Williams helmet!

It's been rejected again by the governing body - how many investigations are needed?blink.gif

don't know about Whistler specifically, but generally you can only consume alcohol in a licensed area.

Not strictly enforced. I have had alcohol in parks and on the subway but you at least have to try and pretend you are drinking something else.

There's a funny episode of Corner Gas where the two police officers on the baseball team know everyone else is drinking and don't care but they're all trying to hide it.

ohh - that is interesting!!

I just wonder how the Canadians are surprised when they are in Germany

When you are 16 you are allowed to drink and buy beer, but you have to be 18 to drink and buy e.g. schnaps or whiskey....

When a 15 years old one is together with his/her legal guardian you are allowed to drink and buy beer...
