Blog Photo - Game On! Live Sports Thread 2/23/14Well, we've finally reached the end of the 2014 Winter Olympics. What events are left get going early in the morning here (so as to have everything well done before the closing ceremonies), thus the early thread here. The keystone is of course the men's hockey gold medal game. Will Canada repeat as Olympic champions, or will Sweden give them another memory like 1994? Canada is undoubtedly more talented, but the Swedes have King Henrik at goal. He'll keep them in the game.

Elsewhere, we have the NBA, where LeBron is questionable due to a broken nose. There's also some college basketball, soccer, and golf. It's also time for the Daytona 500. I'll watch because it's something race fans must watch, but my expectations are low.

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