I honestly could not guess for most of these. Canada delivers something worth remembering in London 2012 Olympics soccer semi-final loss to U.S "Because the Olympics are at their best when they deliver [...]
An amazingly awesome writer with spectacular critical faculties by the name of Gil Lebreton at the Star-Telegram, based out of Texas, had some obviously well thought out analogies to make about his experience of the Olympics this year: After a spirited torch relay ignited pride in every corner of the country, the Olympic Games began and quickly galvanized the nation.

But as I realised last night, there’s definitely a level of fun that is just not present in any of the other figure skating events at the [...]
Final Canadian WWI veteran dies.
I discovered today that NBC is tape-delaying the hell out of the Olympics, so I feel lucky that despite all their faults, at least CTV is broadcasting everything live. Speaking of which…
