medal count thread

We figure that the Olympics are of interest to just about all sports fans and being that we have Redskin fans all over the globe, why not give them a forum to sound off in about their favorite, or least favorite Olympic athletes and events.

Curling certainly, plus the skeleton, and that's probably about it.

The women in the downhill yesterday were flying further off the final jump than Eddie did!
