Would it be wrong to suggest... 

...that Canada sucks at the Olympics this year? Can anyone even grab us a "Canadian Gold" (a bronze)? Remember that photo of all those Canadians, walking proudly into the opening ceremonies at The Bird Nest, hopeful, confident, well dressed, cocky...Well, they may have a little less wind in their sails now...Here's a comparison, thanks to the awesome graphic representation put together by the New York Times: in 1984, in 2008.It almost looks like 1980, except there's no North American boycott going on against communism. OR IS THERE (Cue dramatic music)? It's sort of a shame we wasted all that money flying to China to boycott the games. OR DID WE? (Cue disappointed, slightly flat music).I'll keep in mind that it's still early, and that there's still hope. But seriously, someone win SOMETHING. Geez.
