Name me one good American beer. I dare you.

 

There is no such thing as a good American beer.

 

[bleep] the haters, my nation has the worst Winter Olympics ever.

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

So...Evgeni Plushenko is Evgeni Plush-no-go as he had to drop out of the Men's single program for figure skating. And he retired. So much for the gold medal...

 

Yuzuru Hanyu and Patrick Chan however. Wow, just wow.

USA vs Russia Hockey game is in like 3.5 hours (I think), no way I'm going to catch that. I really hope they replay it at some point tomorrow because I'd love to watch that.

Snowboard Cross and Bobsled tomorrow. Don't know what Snowboard Cross is, but hoping its cool. Fan of the bobsled so looking forward to that.

 

Was also watching some curling today. Good fun (watched the end of Canada beating Russia, which was pretty close in the last end).

How about the rest of the game? The beauty of sports lies in the 99% of the game that the common fan forgets about after the final minute.

So Russia, for the third Olympics in a row, does not get a medal in Hockey, having lost to Finland in the elimination round.

 

On a scale of one to Stalin, how mad do you think Putin is at the moment?

Following the loss to Finland...Radulov was never seen or heard from again.

 

On the same note as hockey though, Canada vs USA, winner advances to face the winner of Sweden and Finland I do believe. Quite the tournament so far. Here's to hoping the Canadian/American game will be a good one!

Anchor Steam, Rogue, Alaskan, Pyramid, New Belgium, Red Hook, DogFish, & countless local breweries that you're not going to hear about unless your visit any given city. I can only name you ones on the west coast, but that'd be overkill to do. 

 

Did you guys see that both the American and Canadian hockey team had an impromptu street hockey match. I read about it this morning before catch the games this morning. http://grantland.com/the-triangle/hockeybest-before-usa-canada-usa-meets-canada-in-sochi-street-hockey/

 

Looking forward to the semi-final match.

Been waiting for these hockey games to come along. The Curling finals are also getting underway for which I am possibly more excited (I don't play hockey anymore, but I still curl). The 4 finals between both sports should be a good show, at least for someone who enjoys both. Still, it would be massively to our benefit in the medal standings if Canada can walk out of this with 4 gold medals. It would be oh so lovely to get the most golds again, and 4 golds would go a long way to making that happen (I've been a tad sour ever since the Americans overtook us in the medal standings. Winter is our thing!). Honestly, I'm not sure if I will hold my breath for mens hockey or not though, really not sure how that's going to go.

 

Also, apparently north America has all of 4 bobsled tracks. Two on each side of the border.

Women's Hockey. Canada wins 3-2 in OT on a 4-3 power play.

That was a weird ending. That should have been a penalty shot, not a minor, though I can sort of understanding not wanting to make that call in OT on an Olympic gold medal match. Or maybe I missed something (been a while, though I did go and look up the rules, though I think the Olympic rules are a bit different). Anyway, that was a nail biter game, I really thought USA was going to take it for a while, and then you get a heart stopper of a first minute in OT.

 

Got gold in Curling too, though I think Norway went off and got another gold today as well :D

 

Good times.

It was a really good game to watch. I had so many heart attacks. But with Canada having so much momentum the US Canada Men's Hockey semifinal will be a game to remember.

 

But as we talk about the biggest international Hockey powerhouses, let us remember Russia will get no medals in Hockey...yet again.

Speed skating anyone? It's popular in one country (roughly) but it is also what puts us high in the medal rankings :P.

 

The US team had special suits designed by Lockheed Martin, but they ditched them after really bad (well, top-10) performances early on, because the ventilation hole in the back allegedly acted as a brake. It didn't actually help, but it was pretty funny :P.

Holy cow, what a nail biter. I hope tomorrow keeps going with the momentum the women's team has created.

Watching the metal presentation was rough as they don't really allow the 2nd place team enough time to collect themselves. There was like only one or two of our ladies that looked moderately excited to be medaling, the rest looked devastated.

I saw. I mean, but what can you do? You let up in the last 3 minutes of the game to blow a 2-0 lead and in over time you could have won but lady luck says [bleep] you and you hit the post and it just happen to rotate out. You can't recover from that.

I also hear about the suit but gave up on speed skating when I saw how bad the Dutch was kicking ass. It wasn't .10 of seconds they were winning, it was full 1 or 2 seconds. In the Men team pursuit semifinal the dutch were almost 10 secs ahead of Poland. They had to slow down because the Polish skaters were right in front of them. It was like watch the biathlon. You know Norway will just hand you an ass beating. The Women's pursuit doesn't look promising considering we are paired with the dutch. As for the Men Hockey...I kinda just wanna cry now.

 

Canada better get the gold or I will be flippin so much [bleep].

 

So yeah. [bleep] you Netherlands, [bleep] you Canada. You took the two sports I had the most hope for and stomped on my dreams!

 

EDIT: Dutch kicked our ass by 3.59 secs and Olympic record in Women's pursuit. No medals in any speed skating event. I'm gonna go lay down and cry myself to sleep now.

Had a look. It's happened 11 times (that I counted) where neither Canada nor the United States took gold in mens hockey, most recently in 2006. I guess I repressed that memory since I have no recollection of Canada placing 7th with USA in 8th. Only 6 times with neither country getting a medal.

 

Anyway, a bit sad I didn't really see anything from today since we seem to have done pretty well for ourselves, with yet more medals in freestyle skiing (ski cross today).

Biathlon is everything but Norwegians right now. In women's, Belarusian has taken 3 golds.

And cross-country is more exciting anyways.
