A crush that led to Olympic gold

 

Canadians basking in the warm glow of Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue's gold medal winning performance in the ice dancing were all asking the same question on Tuesday ... Are they as close off the ice as they are on it?

Turns out the answer is no, but things might have turned out diffrerently, as Allan Dowd reports...

“I know I had a crush on Scott, that’s for sure, but I wasn’t alone there,” she told reporters.

“That’s certainly changed,” Moir shot back.

And no, they are certainly not dating now.

“Just on the ice for seven minutes every time we do the program,” Moir joked.

Winter Olympics — day three

Cowbells are clanging, horns are blaring - it's race day at Whistler Creekside at last... Yes, that's right, the weather has finally improved to the point where Alpine skiing is possible at these Games. We expect the men's downhill gold to be decided at around 1200 local time (1500 ET and 2000 GMT) and there's plenty more action where that came from here in The Couver. Join us here for the fun.
