    What a bummer! I was really rooting for Shaun. Oh well I guess it's back to his band.

    I would love to make a run on the halfpipe. Not doing the tricks, I would break my neck but just to go up and down it. It looks like so much fun!!

    The Russian having to withdraw from men's skating was so heartbreaking! I also felt sorry for the American skater who took the huge fall, but like everyone else I admired his spirit for getting up and finishing the program.

    Finally, those people singing the national anthem loudly and horribly off key during the medal ceremony for freestyle skiing needed to shut the freak up!

    More falls in the men's long program part of the figure skating competition. Maybe they just try to do too much.

    That's usually why I don't watch the ice skating any more!

    Watching USA vs. Russia in hockey right now, so weird to be cheering against Geno and cheering for players I normally would never consider cheering for!

    It's different in the Olympics than the NHL, but it was an AMAZING game. I thought about watching it again this evening.

    They do the shootouts if the OT still ends in a tie. In Olympics, they then have the shootout and you start out with three different shooters from each team. All six shoot one-on-one against the opposing goalie. At the end of the three, whichever team has the most goals, wins. In this one, after three each, it was tied 1-1, so then they do round-by-round, and the shooters can be the same person or people (NHL they have to be different). They switch at this point and the team that went first goes last in each round. If one makes it in and the other doesn't, the team that made it in wins. In this game, it took eight rounds to get a winner. They go until someone scores and the other doesn't.

    I want to go see my Pens play the Predators but it's the night after the Cindy show. I can't drive back from Raleigh on Saturday, then drive to Cincy and back on Monday, then drive to Nashville and back on Tuesday! Guess it'll wait until next year, or I'll go see the Preds play someone else.

    BTW: Oshie has been trending on Facebook and Twitter all day!
