    I agree. I was actually rooting for him on that last run since he was our only shot at that point, but my ideal scenario was Davis getting gold and white choking. Sucks the bottom of that pipe was so shitty, you could tell it was affecting everybody's runs.

    Looking back, Terje was right. The snowboarding has no place in the Olympics. That being said, I think that Ipod got extra points for being Russian born and shouldn't have received gold for having -1 hits on the pipe. If the judges were going to reward a "spin to win" trick like the YOLO flip, then Max Parrot should have placed in slopestyle, due to having a rodeo off a jib, and two triple corks in the jump section. Judging should be consistent.

    The time differences are really making it hard to follow curling.

    Such a shame.

    Seriously...we all should have listened to Terje. On the plus side, the Olympic slopestyle judging was actually a breath of fresh air to the sport in that it finally awarded style over the most spins/flips, which is what the sport was really founded on and desperately needed to return to. Unfortunately for the Canadians, nobody told them that in advance or maybe they would have altered their runs a little. I think McMorris' run might have been better than Parrot's though. Either way, I think pipe might have turned out the same except that the bottom was such shit that Danny Davis couldnt pull together his entire run without washing out in the slush. I just hope x-games takes their lead and stops giving gold to the person with the most triple corks (or maybe quadruple by next year), cuz that is boring shit.

    Someone got overzealous with the fill button and doesn't know what Maryland looks like.
    Both Maryland and Delaware should be completely black. No athletes from either state this year.

    So nobody else watched that absolutely incredible Women's Downhill event? You know, the first olympics event to ever end with two gold medals, because two skiers had the same time to a tenth of a second, and one of them is a super model and pop singer in her home country?

    Or how about that incredible showing from the U.S. Men's Hockey team in the second period?

    Or Women's Snowboarding Slopestyle, where we got first and third?

    Or when we swept Men's Ski Slopestyle?

    It was great. Skeleton is an exhilarating sport, and that competition for 2nd on (first was a complete walk-off) was tight as could be. It was a blast to watch. Outside of skating events, this has been a thrilling winter Olympics thus far.

    And, as someone who has known Shaun White for nearly 20 years, I am glad he lost. I hope it encourages the sport to focus on the wide breadth of talent that exists in its field and not automatically allow a star to gain a spot in a team despite skipping qualifying rounds to practice for another event he subsequently dropped.

    I got in the car to go to work the other day, the game was on the radio, Slovakia had just tied it 1-1 in the 2nd. By the time I got to work, about 25 mins later, the US was up 6-1. I started feeling bad for the Slovakians. I'm sure they're all nice boys with caring moms and all.

    Colorado is well represented in the games according to the map. I'm sure for the summer games we wouldn't fair as well but still ok. I sort of hope the Russians do well in the games but 2nd to the US of course Can't you imagine if both the men and women's hockey team both went gold cr****

    Were you not aware of how huge speedskating was in Holland before this? They've always excelled at that sport. I mean....it's a flat country with canals that have historically always frozen over.
