It's not gold, but move over, Bonnie Blair.  Apolo Ohno takes the bronze for his 7th Olympic medal, a new high for the winter games.

Sweet, bobsled is on!  I now have the urge to go watch Cool Runnings for the 500th time.

Dufour doesn't get it, US wins! 4-3.

Forget the 0-7 the past few days, 2-0 today.

Finally, "the Rock(s) have come back to the US"..........do either team still have a medal chance?

2/20/10   |   derms33   |   17653 respect

yes i did!!!

2/20/10   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

We'll see what happens on Sunday, Torino gold medal rematch...as Backstrom gets the shutout.

2/20/10   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

LOL any non-North Americans in the stands are probably thinking "WTF kind of song is this?" as they play Cotton Eyed Joe over the PA.

2/20/10   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

That was quick on the PP, Finland is 4 for 5.

2/20/10   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Teemu Selanne's assist on Timmonen's 2nd goal gives Selanne 37 career points in the Olympics, a new record.

Bernard draws it dead center on the final throw. Canada 4-0.

2/20/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3307 respect

Canada playing it smart and easy in the 11th, just peeling off any sort of blockers Denmark is trying to put up, and will be down to Cheryl Bernard again.

2/20/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3307 respect

Cheryl Bernard with a great shot, and Dupont was able to replicate it. Tied up, going to the 11th.

2/20/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3307 respect

Russia had a 5-0 lead on Switzerland too, but end up losing 8-5.

2/20/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3307 respect

Japan puts a 5 spot up on England to win it 11-4.

2/20/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3307 respect

Denmark had the chance to clear the 9th end and take the hammer to the 10th tied, instead Dupont whiffed, and Canada steals a point. 4-3 Canada, but Dupont/Denmark still have the hammer.

2/19/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3307 respect

Japan had an easy draw to take a 5-3 lead in their match.

2/19/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3307 respect

Dupont with a nice throw and the Danes take a 3-2 lead.

2/19/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3307 respect

Yea, those Dupont girls are nice, I'm definitely liking Cheryl more and more though.

2/19/10   |   derms33   |   17653 respect

do women curlers make good wives?  They can sweep the $hit outta your house

2/19/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3307 respect

Bernard misses a chance at 4? I didn't think that was possible for her...

2/19/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3307 respect

Uh oh, the Canadian womens curling team just said "sh*t" on live tv. Anyone expect a larger uproar than the Shaun White one...

2/19/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3307 respect

Bad news: No US womens curling match tonight.
Good news: That means Cheryl Bernard and Team Canada are playing.

2/19/10   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

6-on-4 for Latvia, Elias takes it and launches towards the empty net...bull's eye.  5-2 Czechs.

Bode Miller gets silver, another nice showing to try and make up for Torino.

2/19/10   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Latvia has cut the lead in half, 4-2 Czechs lead.

2/19/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3307 respect

That Italian dude took a HUGE fall on the Super-G run. Took out a gate.

Of course while we say that, France does pick up two, but still - 3-1 after 7? Seems remarkably low.

Well I'm not getting hard watching curling, but they are attractive..
On a side Olympic note, I would like to vent about the my latest run in with sh*tty NBC coverage.. I had to wrok late last night, so I DVRd the Canada - Suisse hockey game.  All I wanted to do after a long day was grab a beer and watch that game.. So I hit play and it's curling.. not so bad, I'll fast forward a little bit,. Then a little bit more.. then a little bit more.. Finally hockey.. and there's aunder two minutes to go in teh first and it's 1-0 Canada.. Mother F*ck.. Then in their constant attempt to shoehorn in a 30 second commercial in a 20 break for a faceoff, Switzerland scored thier first goal.. It is so damn irritating.. There are three awesome matchups on Sunday, please don't ruin them

That is all

2/19/10   |   ary201   |   213 respect

Yay! Finally a U.S. win.

2/19/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3307 respect
