We’re pretty spoiled here in America, as we not only get to live in the greatest country on Earth, but the people who live here are pretty talented, too. That’s why when you check out the medal counts in Beijing this summer, you’ll see the United States near the top of the board battling with host China (China’s edging America out 35 to 34 right now).
Apparently, though, all the talent and gifted athleticism that Americans are born with has as hard a time crossing the border into Canada as Osama Bin Laden carrying a ticking bag. We’re officially a week into the Olympics, and our neighbors to the north are yet to get on the board. Swimmer Mike Brown is the latest Canuck to let his country down.
