2010 Vancouver Games Conclude*

Congratulations to:

  • The USA for winning the most medals (37) and for setting a Winter Olympic medal count record in the process;
  • Canada for winning the most gold medals (14), for beating the USA in yesterday's game, and for staging a* great Games despite early tragedy and technical difficulties and an uncooperative mother nature;
  • The USA and Canada for staging the first ice hockey game I've had real interest in this century;
  • Julia Mancuso for being hotter than Lindsay Vonn.

And finally, it should come as no surprise who was right in the middle of it all (go to 0:57 remaining):

*is 'Games' in this context singular or plural?

I think singular because "set of" games is implied.
