Editor’s Note: This post is brought to you by the Sporcle Olympics’ curator nscox.
The games have begun, and I am in full “Canada rocks, everyone else sucks” mode (I am from Canada for those unaware). Typically this involves using harmless slang terms that have been rarely used in the last 50 years. I’m not going to elaborate on this because the last thing I want is angry e-mails.
As I write this, Day 3 coverage has just ended and Canada is in the unusual position of being tied for overall medals. There hasn’t been too much in the way of huge surprises yet. Russia is slipping in a few medals they weren’t supposed to get, but that’s to be expected from the host.
The five nations with the best chance of finishing on top in golds or total medals – Russia, the US, Germany, Norway and a certain country that is home to a certain sporcle curator – are all pretty even.
