    Oh Canada!

    Just finished watching that hottie Virtue and her partner Moir take home the gold while the crybaby Frenchies sat there and pouted about the silver medal.

    Love it!

    How is a country like Norway of 5 million people crushing the rest of the world in the Olympics? That's awesome.

    I had the honor of hosting Norwegian exchange student in my parents home back in 1994. They are hard but kind people my type of people. What ever you do don't put one on a lawn mower they don't know the difference between grass and tree(he ran one over with my parents mower). We also had to take him snipe hunting...bahaha. Left him up in a deer stand for two hours(he was pissed). We sent him home with nice snipe hunting trophy(it had a nice wood lathe made baseball under the bird). I hope to visit Norway one day and maybe run into my friend seffien joki.

    The same way a country of 4 million crushes everyone at Rugby. They’re good at stuff.

    I was an Alpine ski racer . I was always a very technical skier ie: Slalom . Tight fast technical turns. I was thrilled to watch Sochi 2014 as Mikaela Shiffrin at age 18 won Gold in Slalom . Well Shiffrin has expanded her Alpine disciplines and now has won Gold in the Giant Slalom in 2018 PyeongChang . Go team USA

    I love everything Olympic Summer and Winter .Strategically I like how the Curling event throwing the rocks is a thinking game . One must have the foresight to think two shots ahead and also the finesse to throw the shot and line up all the angles for the win . In addition the team aspect and communication and the history of the game is intriguing. I will admit I only watch the women Curling no surprise there for people that know me .But yes Curling is awesome if you understand the dynamics and fundamentals .

    Sorry, but had a double take at that photo of Tessa. I wondered what the hell that was between her legs. It looks like a (0*k.

    I know i LOVE her. OMG

    An alpine skier? Impressive Rob

    I have to say, I wish Shiffrin was competing in the Downhill tonight. I'd love for her to whip Vonn's ass. Have to wait for the combined for that.

    Man even the curling was awesome today.

    Yes RD, if you are willing to rip a nut sack in Rugby there is no competing against that kind of dedication.

    Holy shit finally !!!! A women's metal in Nordic cross country skiing The first ever. And it is " Nordic Gold "
    Women's Team Sprint . Two women for each countries team alternating every two laps .
    The best US sprinters Keken Randle & "Oh so cute" Jessie Diggins . Were the 2 US Nordic skiers .

    iceman44 I guess you and I are the smart pinheads watching the 2018 Winter PyeongChang Olympic Winter Games.
    Women's Hockey: U.S. vs. Canada .

    So did anyone watch the early groups for the Women's Figure Skating short program? There was this adorable Hungarian girl who did her skate to an AC/DC medley. Cute punky outfit and lots of feisty energy. Not technically advanced enough to score high, or to get shown on the primetime coverage, but i really hope she keeps it up so we see more of her. Hearing the commenters argue about the musical selection all the way through to the next skater was so amusing.
    I've been quite amused with the costumes of the two main announcers too - blinged out headsets!

    Tired today... Stayed up past 3am to watch that hockey gold last night. Well played. Not a fan of shoot outs but that one was pretty exciting.
