Bit of an anti-climax. We could've done these Swedes for silver.

Great ice-hockey game. Canada came from behind to beeat USA in womens final. Canada 2-0 down with five minutes to go. Canada score then take goal minder off so open goal! USA hit post. Canada score an equaliser in dying seconds.
Extra time- Canada get player sent off, USA get player sent off, USA commit a foul Canada get another player on the ice. Power play...Canada score sudden death goal. WOW!
At the presentation of the medals I don't think there was a USA player not in tears!

Every time I turn anything on it's curling. Literally every time. I'd forgotten there were any other sports involved.

(P.S. It's refreshing to hear someone talk about a women's event without the main subject being whether they want to shag them or not!)

Maybe they were all mingers...

This ladies ski cross has been good. Plenty of crashes too.

I definitely prefer the 'newer", X-Games type, events. Bit more flare. Really can't be bothered with the figure skating, although I don't mind the speed skating.

Love the curling though.

Yes, I used to love the X Games.
I think they should introduce competitive snowman building.

I still don't get Curling, and I never will. :(

I'm not totally clear on the rules, but I still love it. If I had work to go to today, I'd take my broom. ;)

Feel so sorry for them, just when they know everyone is watching.

Silver would still be a great achievement. :)
