Blog Photo - USA-Russia hockey leads this SaturdayGood morning and happy Saturday. The big event at the Olympics today is going on right now, the US vs. Russia hockey game. They played some sort of big game 34 years ago or something. Along with all-day Olympics coverage, it's all NBA All-Star Saturday, which is usually even fun or excruciating, often both at multiple times. In addition, we have a full day of college hoops, some FA Cup, golf, and racing action. Also, MMA, but don't ask me anything further about that.

I'm wondering how many people got up at 4:30am to watch the preliminary games...

As for me, considering that the group play eliminates exactly ZERO teams didn't seem like it was worth getting up early for...

Fortunately, the USA quarterfinal game is at 9am.  I can sneak some streaming of it at work...

That was one great game, even the shootout.
