    Eve's face says that real smiling has come naturally to her for years.
    Rachel's face says, she's been coached into this look, and the coach eventually gave up.

    What a huge disappointment. I wish Jennifer Jones rink had been playing, defending their Gold.

    Well, the rest of the world has figured out this curling game.

    4 years ago people were predicting that South Korea was going to win the women’s gold on home ice. Best team so far.

    Here's a fun fact: Since curling made its return to the Winter Olympics in 1998, a Canadian team had never finished out of the medals in men's or women's curling.

    I think I know why Rachel's husband was drinking so much. He knew he would be dealing with Canada's answer to Hope Solo soon. I wonder if the athletes have to pay damage deposits on their rooms? :laugh:

    Only last year both men's and women's teams went undefeated at the world championships.

    My reaction when New Zealand doubles its total Winter Olympic medal count in one day.

    The hit of the Olympics



    No call on the play... in a sport where hitting is illegal. That would probably be a suspension in the NHL for head hunting. Ouch...

    And great poke check from the goalie.

    The officiating in that game was definitely bizarre.

    Thanks to a Swedish buddy I've got Swedish sports channels. They play classic games all the time and it's pretty cool. Right now it's a 2008-09 game between Skelleftea and Modo featuring Peter Forsberg, Zuccarello before the Rangers signed him, a draft eligible Victor Hedman. Forsberg only played 3 games that year so maybe that's why it's considered classic. He scores in a couple minutes so I'm kinda excited. Haha.

    MODO - SAIK (4-1)



    Goooooooalllllll. 18 year old Victor Hedman the first to give him a hug too

    Another Russian athlete gets popped for PEDs.

    Have not heard of any other athlete than the two OARs.

    Edit: two others. Slovenian and Japanese athletes also failed.

    Jesus Koe couldn't even win a bronze? What a sad day for Canadian curling.

    Incredibly undisciplined game for a bunch of guys that this will be their ONLY chance ever playing in the Olympics. Not disappointed at the result, disappointed in the execution.

    Looking for a Germany win over the Team that Shall Not be Named.

    I don't even care that we won't win gold (or possibly even bronze) in mediocre hockey. It's not a best on best tourney, have fun bragging you beat Derek Roy, Mason Raymond et al. The men's and women's curling teams not even medaling, that is far more embarrassing and concerning.

    The old folks on here will remember the Crystals. I see there original lead singer died. Man, I still love that wall of sound music.

    This is a "like" function now? I live for that type of attention and affirmation.
