And again Hooray

It always interests me to see the sportswriters (have you seen some of these guys) who have the bag to criticize athletes who fail to meet their expectations at the Olympics.

Cindy Klassen did not win the gold but skated a terrifc race - she left it all out there and third best in the world is not too shabby.

And Beckie Scott may not have medalled but she also left it all out on the course - she got out raced and there is no shame in that. Was she disappointed? Sure, she was. But the way the media pile on is a pretty sad comment on their sorry asses.

Cindy, Beckie and all our Olympians from Sunday - congrats on a good day - we're behind you.

Some of us, anyway.
