Olympics Horriblis 

I just got back from an all-staff meeting with the Buzzword King (bad) only to find out that the Canadian Olympic Baseball team has given up 6 runs and a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the 8th, Alexandre Despatie bombed on one of his dives (and is in danger of falling out of the medals), and gold medal favourite Perdita Felicien fell in the 100 M hurdles (Jeremy Wotherspoon says hi!). Bad, badder, worse, worst.

UPDATE: The Canadian ball team scored a couple in the top of the 9th, and even brought the tying run to bat. Pinch hitter Kevin Nicholson even hit what looked to be the game winning homer, only to have it knocked down by the wind and caught at the wall. Argh!!

Another update: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. To temper the disapointments above, at least Despatie finished strong to land a silver to go with the cycling gold that Lori-Ann Muenzer won earlier in the day.
