The American athletes competing at the Vancouver Winter Games are putting on an amazing show of focus, toughness and pure determination for the world to admire.

One can say any number of things about the U.S.A., but one can not say that American athletes aren't clutch performers in whatever sport, amateur and professional.

The Red, White and Blue parade to the podium to collect 9 bronze, 6 silver, and 6 gold medals thus far is truly impressive.

But, of course, the only medal count that really counts is the gold medal count. And Canada will finish these games at the top of the podium with the most gold medals. We will, after all is said and done, Own The Damn Podium.

Go Canada Go!
