Thought For the Day

I was going to skip blogging today because of too many other commitments, so with the Olympics dominating the press I thought I might throw out an idea or two for people to ponder ....

Thought #1:

Why does Russia's invasion of Georgia get almost no press in comparison?

Thought #2:

Why are we as Canadians so philosophical about having NO medals. Some of the quotes I hear are ..."At least we made the finals" or "Yes, but we tried our best".

Here are a couple of quotes with perhaps a slightly different perspective:

"Show me a good and gracious loser, and I'll give you a failure." ... Knute Rockne

"Winning isn't everything -- but wanting to win is." ... Vince Lombardi
