What a great sentiment Michael J Fox......Every penny & fame you've enjoyed has come from the great US of A........! In appreciation following your remark, it'd be really nice if you'd place that maple leaf where the sun doesn't shine.
Not Nice- give the Guy a well earned break - what was ridiculous was the way NBC just shut down the ending ceremony and switched to Seinfeld's new series. That was so rude of NBC. How embarrassing to simply pull the plug on the athletes and Canada. I am still in shock over the way they handled this situation.

Dude, or Miss, whatever you are, I'd say it's pretty from the project of your posts whom the 'dumb' one is here. Oh and btw, I could careless about you and your country's obsession with that thug soccer game on ice, and I sure as hell could careless who won. Other then having the opening and closing ceremonies on in the background and channel surfing thru coverage, it was completely off my radar, as are you. So BUBBLE OFF yourself.

I thought that the closing would be just as boring as the opening, which I couldnt sit through so I put on a dvd. Glad you guys confirmed that I didnt miss anything. Wish I could have seen more of the games though. Winter olympics are great fun to watch no matter who wins what medals.

Gladly, but he/she/it seems desperate to force me into caring about the outcome of the hockey game, and given I don't follow thug sports, its not going to happen. And yea you didn't miss anything with regard to the closing ceremonies. Canada is a great place, I love going there, just glad the general population does not reflect the ignorance and rudeness that Pat has shown here. Funny that he/she/it told you to bubble off following your post however.

Pat, you have been attempting to carry on a debate with someone who is incapable. Spike trolls these forums like a parasite, hoping to drag everyone else down to it's miserable level. This was a perfect example. A subject as simple as the Olympics becomes an outlet for drooling, rambling negativity.

You might want to read the string of comments before jumping to your conclusions, makes you look like the stupid one, yet again.

Once again Spike gets owned. As is its pattern, can only resort to juvenile name calling, along with some swearing via some trick punctuation. Back to the minor leagues.
