Kind of suprised to not see one Olympics thread. People just not into it or what?

I have not see a ton of it I admit. The US/Canada hockey game I watched in full and that was awesome.

US facing Finland right now for a chance to get into gold medal game. I dont know a ton about hockey but would be cool to see a rematch of that game. I anticipate Canada would come out very determined.

Overall a very sucessful winter games for us. I am shocked to see us at the top of the medal count.

Not into it. Women's hockey and the skiing long jump are ok. It's just hard to get behind a bunch of athletes I don't know in sports I don't typically follow.

agreed but I think in part that is what makes it interesting. seeing sports you never see and to appreciate the effort that goes into competing at that level in these sports.

One sport I have never seen that was actually very compelling and fun to watch was that Snowboard Xcross or whatever it was called. That is good stuff.

WOW, 6-0 in the 1st period! Wasn't Finland's goalie supposed to be the Olympic's hotest goaltender coming into the game?

What's crazy is that I think they allowed 4 goals throughout this whole Olympics, only to have let the US score 6 goals within 6 minutes of the 1st period. Wow...

The game Sunday will be a real interesting one to watch against, most likely, Canada.

Aha, it's cool man.

EDIT;

Gotta feel bad for the Chile athletes. They're not staying for the closing ceremonies tomorrow, they're going straight home after their races.

Anyways, on a brighter note... who's going to be watching Canada/USA for the gold at 12PM tomorrow?!

Hell of a game. Still proud of the guys reppin' USA. And it's like Mr. C said, for a young team US team to have put the star studded, host Canadian team on the brink of losing is one hell of an accomplishment.

Yeah, I thought as a fan, that was the funnest hockey game I've ever seen... i was watching it at the Sac State campus Roundtable, so about 30 peeps were there watching the game... Once the U.S. hit the first goal, I knew they were back in it.

What I loved about this game was the non-stop action and quickness both teams played. Most the games these olympics have been total bores but this one was amazing... and the U.S. tying it with 30 seconds left was unbelievable (the entire place i was out had like a one second delay on the cheer as we couldn't believe it).

Sure they lost, but they were the youngest team in the games. And it was fun. And against superstar filled Canada, it was almost done. Go USA and congrats Canada!
