The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Canada vs. Russia

    I've been following the tournament and what seemed to like the best 2 formations will face each other Tuesday for the gold. Russia really outplayed USA tonight, but I hope Canada kick their asses because they were getting cocky towards the Americans, seemed to fake a few penalties, and moved their net intentionally. Go Canada Go!

    I dunno, it's the 3 time in four years that Canada and Russia has faced each other in the final. We lost a good defenseman in Seabrook, but I have every confidence that Canada will take gold this time around, after being a bridesmaid the last three years.

    Canada will win decisively, if not in a blow out.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Wow, I don't think I've seen such domination in this tournament in my lifetime. Each team seemed like little kids against Canada this year. Even the Czech team, that by looking at the score it seemed close, but the shots were roughly 50-10 for canada, so it coulda been the ugliest of all the games if their goalie hadn't stood on his head.

    5 on 5 canada looked like it had the powerplay tonight against russia. Pheneuf (sp?) dominated. No winger wanted to go for the puck when he was bearing down. Looked so much like Scott Stevens out there, will be interesting to see how he does in the NHL.

    LOL @ Vido. Totally true.

    It was a cool game, had my friend sent me updates to my cell. Made my shift at work more interesting. Managed to catch the repeat, before the second period.

    Did anybody laugh when Ovechkin was crying, that was a great feeling.

    I'll secondd Sinep, Canada

    I don't think there was any doubt we'd sweep this tournament.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I think this was the first time a country wins all international events. ie. Mens, Womens, Jrs etc.
