Last of the Olympics

Like all right-minded people I was happily engaged yesterday in cheering, one last time, for the sporting representatives of the liberal democracies against all those dreadful commies.

I was particularly happy to see this guy get one over the Chinese, even if, as the good folks at Morning Report will surely note, he was just as much a cry baby as the other Australian gold medalists.

Although it seems that Australia just beats New Zealand on medals per capita, we beat Australia on gold medals per capita. Since any red blooded Ozzie will assure you that loosing begins at silver, we clearly win the all important trans-Tasman medal rivalry.
