    The one event I had wanted to watch has come and gone apparently, with no mention of winners or anything - Snowboard Cross. I listen to sports radio all day... they don't do a very good job at letting us know what's on and when it will be on... except for curling, you know that's just always on.

    What the hell else is left to watch? Don't tell me the hockey...
    Just one year away... Bruno is almost here!

    The men's event was awful. One guy broke his neck. I thought the Canadian guy had actually been killed on course. I'm not joking. How no one died is a miracle. The course was brutal. I didn't even watch the women.

    I did see some of the Apline and Slalom skiing, those women were actually flying down the hill, sometimes like 80 yards they said. I can only imagine what the Snowboard X was like... I'll have to check out some highlights at least.

    Sad to hear about a broken neck though, even though the athletes know what they're getting into. The luge is insane as well.

    the winner of the women's super-G skiing is also competing in snowboarding at the olympics, that is insane.

    Nice to see Boutin pick up another short-track bronze after drawing the ire of Korea's internet idiots earlier in the week, and Girard winning a gold was cool.

    Too bad our sochi medallist women's slopestyle skiers crashed out.

    Also nice to see Rachel Homan not whiff on basic shots in the women's curling, but maybe it's too little too late at this point. Can't say i'm too impressed with her attitude compared to other curlers we've sent, but maybe i'm just reading too much into her game face.

    Now that the Russians can't bring in baby urine by the litre to sub in for their actual urine tests and are being watched like hawks (though some guy still got implicated in doping in curling of all things) have to rub my eyes and look twice at their medal count....

    0 Gold
    3 Sliver
    8 Bronze.

    These guys can't win if they don't cheat and have the entire team on the juice.
