I think at this point I would rather see Finland in the gold medal game, especially if Rask was sick. Of course we gotta win today, but going against Lundqvist is no easy task.

I'm sorry but I can't take figure skating seriously. What they do is awesome and increbily skillful. And I realize many people think it is beautiful. However, there is still far too much corruption in figure skating and some of the decisions leave people scratching their heads.

Yes, there are other sports which are judged by human beings rather than a clock. However, their decisions are much more consistent and make more sense than the decisions that come out of figure skating. It's still a corrupt sport and that's not the fault of the skaters.

My friend had it right when he said it sucks for figure skating as a whole when it's really only in the spotlight even four years and then they had a result like that. If you look at the overall body and competition within every country and Grand Prix circuts, you don't see stuff like this, but with it being highlighted last night it makes everyone go hmmmmmm and turns them off of it forever.

I interrupt your hockey viewing to bring you a couple SPOILERS
18 year old US skier Mikaela Shiffrin wins GOLD in the slalom after nearly wiping out on her second run. She's the youngest to ever win the event! With that the US has now tied their Vancouver gold medal total at 9.
And the US men's short track team finally broke through and got a silver medal in the relay event.

I've got some good Canadian friends. Been to the country quite a few times. Would love to see more of the country. However, after the results from the last two days, I actually dislike Canada for the first time in my life.

^that is an amazing story.


We just got beat by a better team. Can't really get mad about that.
Quick kept us in the game and we couldn't generate any real scoring chances.

If I'm honest, I'm probably more upset at the US than I am in Canada. However, I had never imagined Canada being our enemy in anything. So the last two days have brought me to that point (even if we are to blame more than Canada).

Canada has always been our rival when it comes to hockey, became bigger in Salt Lake and bigger after Vancouver and Sochi.

Both teams are all NHL players who play against each other every night.


And by mad about that I mean the outcome of the game. Wasn't like yesterday's women's game, and it wasn't like we lost to a worse team (like if we had gotten beat by Czech or Slovakia)

Of course. We're both good at it. And we've actually improved over the years as we are getting more quality guys in the NHL from the US.

I like Canada. I'll never hate them. The last couple of days has just made them a rivalry more than other any time of year.

Last year, I was in Toronto for the US/Canada women's soccer match. Now that was pretty intense and a lot of fun. I even got a ticket sitting in the section with the Canadian ultras. I was the only one cheering for the US. I got a lot of strange looks and could tell people were looking at me. However, everyone was nice. But it's the most tension I've experienced between our two countries (and even then, it wasn't bad).

Screw Canada... kind of worried we won't even medal now. Our team will surely be disappointed now with Bronze being their best case scenario. Finland could easily destroy us.

And we could easily destroy Finland.

On paper we are definitely better. And if Rask isn't in net that helps us more.
Problem is, will our team be up for it? I think so. The glue of our team (Parise, Backes, Brown and Callahan) will not let that happen. (In my opinion)

I thought the russian skated better. She was more dynamic and had more pace. She also hit 7 triples which 5 were in combos and the korean hit 6 triples which 3 were in combos. I was very surprised because before I actually watched it I was on the conspiracy bandwagon.

You didn't really understand what I meant.

Wasn't saying the fins aren't really good. But we are better. (And don't go by world rankings, all of our players play in the NHL which overlaps with any world tournament/ owners disallow them from playing in it)
Problem is, we were gold medal or bust.

The main aspect of this game is are we up for the bronze medal.
In my opinion those 4 players I named won't let us be. But I could be wrong.
