Think I'll have a wank over these tomorrow.
So, 30 people have already been busted for drugs, and one German luger is dead, and they haven't even done the opening ceremonies yet... this might turn out to be the biggest fail olympics ever.
So what was it you were saying about USA struggling with the Swiss yesterday, Prax?
US hockey is looking fantastic now...Im guessing at least silver.
We'll know a lot more after the US-Canada game tomorrow because the winner of this game will get a bye into the quarterfinals (the loser still might get the 4th seed bye unless they give it to Russia or the Sweden-Finland loser). If the US can just put back to back (vs. Canada & the quarterfinals) quality games together they will have made it to the medal round and one win from there puts them on the podium. The US was really shaky against the Swiss in the first game struggling to find the net early, but the following two games for Switzerland proved they were no pushovers hanging in till a shootout against Canada and an exciting 5-4 game with Norway, a team that lost a combined 14 to 1 against US & Canada. Hopefully now that they've had a few days off and gotten some practices in they will be better prepared for the home stretch of the tournament.BTW, how about this "own the podium" program Canada threw cash at? 8 total medals at the half way point? At least China held up their end of the bargain at the Beijing games. As one US Olympian stated, "They can take the thing [podium] home, we're just renting it for the month."
