Belbin and Agosto were awesome, and they both seem so nice. Good for them I don't think they could have won gold even if she didn't make the two mistakes. I didn't care for the Russians' program. And I couldn't believe the pair that skated to Bolero, that takes guts.

Gee Barbara and Maurizio made up

ladies short tonight, I have to go into hiding to avoid the results

I lasted for only a few minutes. I guess when your programming loses to "Skating with the Stars" you counter with more of the same.

Who would have thought back then what she'd become.
I love how they were so proud of their sibling's accomplishments instead of their own.

That was the strangest thing with Barbara and Maurizio. They're weren't speaking until after their FD. The pair who skated to Bolero, Chait and Sakhnovski from Israel, was pretty gutsy. Dick Button was entirely too harsh with them. I'm glad Tanith and Ben won the silver, they are very nice and I'm proud of them.

I've been watching the olympics a lot less this year - I just can't get into it like I've done in the past

3-1 now the score, Canada leading the Czechs. It looked like Brodeur hurt his leg leg when a player fell on him, but he has decided to stay in the game.

Final score for men's hockey - Canada wins 3-2 over the Czech Republic!

I'm so glad to see the men win. Since I'm at work I'll have to wait until tonight to watch the game. Why does work always have to interfere with more interesting things?!

Canada's men's hockey team looks like crap. No tape to tape passes, bad penalities, standing around, not going to where the puck is going to be,Brodeur saved their ass today but they look like they will probably lose tomorrow or in the semis. Right now, the only hope is Brodeur but that is unrealistic to expect him to play on his head for the next 3 games. The team was badly outplayed today, 2 of the goals were gifts or lucky goals. Usually they start coming around by now, but wow, I have never seen them this shaky in a tournament.

They don't seem to care much about the game. I know that is probably not the case but it is how they are coming across.

Will they step it up for the rest of the tourny? I sure hope so.

The ladies just finished skating their short program. I won't mention any particulars as I normally don't play spoiler.

I have a question: for the athletes who do bobsledding and stuff with big equipment, how do they get that there? Do they have to ship it? What if their bobsled got lost? I know for the Summer Olympics, the horses have to go weeks in advance to be quarantined, but what about things that aren't alive but can't exactly be checked as baggage?

I was actually thinking about that because several of the skiiers have their own motor homes that they're living in.

For most of the athletes the competetive season has been going on a while over there. I'm guessing many of them have been living in Europe for much of the winter.

I'm not sure how you'd go about shipping a bobsled though

I believe they ship it as cargo if it is going overseas. If it's nearby, some people elect to have it driven over, maintain more control over it.

An interesting story at SLC was Catriona LeMay Doan's skates. She was a double gold medallist in speed skating and I think still the current world record holder in the 500m. Anyway, she liked to travel with her skates on the same flight but after 9/11 they changed the rules and she was so worried about something happening to them that she had her husband drive them over personally from Canada, lol.
