Not to mention Canada is a pretty damn small country at 30 million

That's kind of like saying that losing the NBA finals 3 times >>> NBA Championship.

I wonder how many NBA players or Olympic athletes would agree they'd rather finish 2nd place a bunch of times than finish first.

Yup. It's all about winning.

You don't see any respectable news outlet ranking the medal table in any other way than golds first either. (except Americans when they are behind in golds)

that is ****ing stupid. so, no pride in being one of the top 3 athletes in your sport eh? what a terrible way to look at the world. The gasol's should just commit murder-suicide now eh?

Say a country has 1 gold in, IDK, pick a dumb and pointless sport, synchronized swimming and another county has no golds but has placed in the top 3 in every sport in the olympics. the first country had the better olympics? Really?

Obviously. You don't have a winner's mentality.

Silver medals? That's like a 40-degree day. Ain't nobody got nothing to say about a 40-degree day. Fifty. Bring a smile to your face. Sixty, shit, ****** is damn near barbecuing on that mother****er. Go down to 20, ****** get their bitch on. Get their blood complaining. But forty? Nobody give a **** about 40.

This is the official Olympics medal table and it has always been about who wins the more Gold medals.

Silver medals are a big deal. If you're in the same sport as legendary athletes you can only aim for silver or bronze.
