YEAH!! go Canada!!! 14 gold medals and we showed who owns hockey when it comes to the guys and the chicks smile . Also proud of the USA. you guys do awsome to but im canadian so you know razz gotta cheer a lil u know hehe
I'm surprised Nedermeyer didn't score the winning goal. He really put a lot of shots on the net during the overtime!
Those seven minutes of overtime were so much more stressful than a month of school!
14 GOLDS FOR CANADA!!!!!! ;D
OWNED THAT PODIUM
Gratz to the states though. 37 medals total is no small accomplishment!
It was a great 17 days. All of the athletes deserve our praise and respect. Though I am not a hockey fan, I do usually watch it during the Olympics, at least the US matches. Yesterday's match was one of the best games in the history of the sport. It was better than any of the Kings and Ducks games that I have seen in person here at home.
To answer the question of why Niedermeyer didn't get any in, you have only to look one place - "RYAN MILLER" - Miller was awesome stopping shot after shot. If there was an MVP for the game it was him. His effort gave the US a chance to win, but at least the winners were our favorite neighbor Canada. There is no shame in losing to Canada.
GOOD JOB VANCOUVER, CANADA ON THE 2010 WINTER OLYMPICS
See you at London, England 2012 or Sochi, Russia 2014.
Hear ye, hear ye! The 2010 Winter Olympics are upon us and it's time to put thy clever brains to work. Can you predict what will happen at the games? Methinks you can! Put yourself to the test every single day of the lovely Olympics starting today until the very last day, the 28th of February. For each contest we'll pick 5 members at random from everyone who picked the right answer and award them a whopping 2,500 gold each. Play often and you could run away with a lot of loot!
We'll have new contests unveiling daily, so check back here often! And, we'll post links with updates on our new blog!
Now to address some of the common questions:
Why are you using Surveymonkey for this? Why not use your own poll feature?
Our poll feature is great, but it's easier for us to do all the tracking necessary to pick winners through Surveymonkey. That's why it's important you put in your username exactly when you vote - if we can't identify you, you can't win!
How long will it take for the winners to be notified?
Great question! Approximately "as soon as we can," - it's a lot of data to go through.
Can we win more than once?
Darn tootin'! Well, you can only vote once in each poll, but you could definitely win multiple times if you vote in all of them. It all depends on how lucky you are.
How will I know if I won?
Check this page for updates. We will link to our blog where we'll announce winners! There's nothing else you'll need to do - no passwords to enter, no info to provide, nothing.
