Blog Photo - Game On! Live Sports Thread 2/21/13Good morning. We're posting this in advance because it's the final full day of the Winter Olympics, and you never know who's crazy enough to be awake to watch live. The big event in the men's hockey bronze medal game. Team USA got bitten by Canada yet again, but they can still get hardware with a win over Finland.

Elsewhere there's a large NBA schedule of bleh matchups, and obviously a lot of college hoops as we get close to March Madness. The biggest game is Syracuse-Duke, a rematch of their instant classic from a few weeks ago. There's also a UFC pay-per-view, soccer, golf, and the Nationwide race at Daytona. Let's hope they avoid injuring fans this time.

Here is today’s schedule. All times are eastern and are pm unless otherwise indicated. Personal picks are in bold.

Pretty sure Quick summed it up best.

 Jonathan Quick, not happy: "We're professionals. We play back-to-backs all year long. There's no reason we show up and not piss a drop."

This game went well.

We were in 4th after the first leg of the biathlon relay, but our second guy had to take 3 penalty loops, and the upset medal bid goes away.

Also, *bleep* Chelsea.
