It was a great game. Hopefully the mens team will snap it into gear and start winning some games as well

The United States got its first medal in ice dance in 30 years. Belbin and Agosto won the silver medal. Yay!

Happy Birthday by the way! That's if it is still your birthday what with the time zone difference

But who will be the whipping boy for the casual American fan that could care less about winter sports and skiing except for 2 weeks every four years?

Canadian women win hockey gold!

Now all we need is for the men's team to whip themselves into action, and start doing better.

I'm sure that by the time 2010 rolls around, the Great NBC Machine will have found someone new to overhype.

Just as long as Bode Miller shuts the fuck up.

Awesome victory by Canadian women today in ice hockey, they really deserve it. They worked their asses of each and every game and over the past 6 months for that gold.

Bode who?!?

Canada's skiiers didn't win medals but they still placed well in the events.

I'm glad to see the curlers earn their way into the playoffs, hopefully, they have woken up from their funk and start playing their A games.

Personally, I could care less if Bode keeps on talking because no one outside of the ski community will give a shit. That's what's great about the Olympics, people fall in love with or hate certain athlete based on the tiny snapshot that the media and their performance provides. If Bode was winning, then people wouldn't cry, piss, and moan about a guy and a sport they know next to nothing about.


If Bode would get back to winning like he did in the 04-05 season, then that would be cool too

Look, I follow skiing every season, and I've done so closely for 8 years because of the Kostelic family and before that more casually, it was mostly my dad's interest. And I always found Bode Miller to be irritating and prone to making inane statements. Bottom line is, he's not accomplished nearly enough things to have a mouth that big.

So it's not just a once in 4 years for me, I really honestly find him to be irritating on a nearly constant basis.

He's got a lot of potential, but as an athlete, I respect others on the circuit a hell of a lot more. Especially the ones who know how to show up on game day and don't say much before or after, but let their skiing speak for them. Bode could learn a thing or two.

We found the Kostelic's story incredibly moving - I am glad they are both going home with medals.

They're wonderful kids, nbc. My mom knit a baby hat for her when she was born.
Who would have thought back then what she'd become.

Has NBC placed sound effects on the ski jumpers?

I'm so mad that I missed all the drama w/ Fusar Poli, I read in the paper that she glared at him on the ice and turned her back on him in the kiss and cry


the look she had in her eyes... Gosh! I suppose he's never gonna forget him!
It's a pity, but as someone said, sports is like that. You win, you lose... And winning is easier than losing.

Everything can happen. Barbara Fusar Poli & Maurizio Margaglio were probably thinking they had already won, and the unpredictable happened.
