My prediction: 13-0. Italy gets a grand total of 2 shots all game.

Did anyone else mind that they were playing disco from the eighties during the Parade of Nations? I thought that was rather tacky.....maybe they shouldn't have played music, period. Also I didn't recognize the Israeli ice dancer Galit Chait, who was carrying the Israeli flag, out of a costume. Then Carolina Kostner came in carrying the Italian flag at the end of the Parade.
Just got word about the Canadian gold medal in moguls by e-mail.

The U.S. has its first gold medal. Chad Hedrick won the gold in the 5,000 meters in speed skating. He's scheduled to compete in four more races. Maybe he'll equal Eric Heiden's five gold medals in Lake Placid.

Well, actually yes. Did you catch the comment about the Slovenian delegation and the song "YMCA"? If they'd been playing eighties music I guess it would have been Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet.

It was a mix of disco from the 70's along with some early 80's music.

If they were going for a surprise, it worked...

Well, I don't want to make a mistake, but I think there was a Duran Duran song, "Dance into the Fire" if I'm not wrong

In other news, in the pairs short program, pairs skaters Rena Inoue and John Baldwin just hit the first throw triple Axel in the history of the Olympics. I don't know their placement, I'm waiting for tonight for that.

Italian commentator: "It's 8 minutes that Canada doesn't score us a goal, that's already a triumph!"................

Stupid wanker, we're losing 7-0, what the hell do you want more?!?!?

I'll have to avoid this thread if I don't want to know who won before NBC shows the competition.

NBC is the shittiest broadcast network as far as the Olympics are concerned. I feel sorry that you guys in the US have to watch it.

While medals are being given out and there is live competition, they're showing Bode Miller's practice runs. Grim.

Speaking of Bode - can't stand him or his elephantine ego.

Did anyone else watching the CAN-ITA hockey game just catch Vertigo being played on the arena pipe organ?

Oh, and babyman, we regularly kick Italy's ass at many sports. You can beat us at soccer and F1 racing. Woo!
