*I* think that since I've been going exclusively with Canadian athletes in this contest, I should have first dibs on Melissa and the rest of you guys fight it out over the other Canadian skeletons.

heheheheh

BTW - I'll be travelling to Florida next Monday, so if I start to miss predictions, it's not because I've given up, it will be because of lack of connectivity.

I'm thinking I should get some self-respect, do a Shani Davis, and just quit. LOL!

I don't get to do this very often, but it's time for Amy Williams - GBR

Unbelievable! Hollingsworth came first in five of the six practice runs, but fifth, third, second and eleventh in the competitive runs. The Canadians were supposed to have such an advantage from their much greater familiarity with the courses in Vancouver.

Never seems to work out that way eh?

Read an article today which analyzed 9 different sites medal projections - and the aggregate has us finishing first in medals and golds (before today - think we were supposed to get one today of course!)
