    Can't we all just agree that Canada won the gold deservedly, in their own sport, in front of the whole world?

      The REAL reason Canada won gold, it was all in the numbers :



      (From a Canadian TV show which spoofs 'real' news shows called "This Hour has 22 Minutes". This particular ambush interview was shot in November '09)

          This question is to the Canadians -

          How does Crosby's goal and the gold medal compare to Paul Henderson's goal and winning the Summit Series in 1972?

              Slug's post reminded me that I forgot to add:

              Congrats on the win and winning the most important thing of the Olympics - the most gold medals.

                There's a lot of great goals that we hold dear. Henderson's will probably always be #1 since that series was so friggin' tough, and the first.

                That said, Crosby's goal was pretty good, too.

                Some other great Canadian goals:

                  I understand completely what he did on play (faked goalie that he was going to one time shot) but technically Mario Lemieux shouldn't even get an assist on the play as he didn't touch the puck. Doesn't take away from the fact that very few others could have been so key in the manner he did on such a play.

                    You're absolutely right, but that was the title on the video.

                    I can remember being absolutely jaw dropped watching the play. I was sure that Lemieux would shoot and when he let it go...

                      I think it depends on what generation you are but for me, I will never forget Henderson's goal. I was a kid at the time, but it felt like we were on the front lines of the Cold War. Tiny Canada taking down the Russian super-power

                      However, the feeling in this country during the two weeks of these Olympic games was electric in a different, but in some ways, more pervasive sense. Crosby's goal (which is not a "pretty" goal in game terms) was just the icing on the cake.

                      During the game parliament could have sat naked and voted themselves a 400% pay raise and no one in this country would have noticed.
