    But that girl from Russia was awesome. Absolutely flawless, but I think the South Korean gal was going to pull it out. U.S. announcers said her performance was "tight". WTF?

    Not exactly what they said here. Former multiple olympic medal winnerin Kathi Witt, couldn't belive it and was absolute upset about the jury's scoring.

    I agree with Witt. I meant the U.S. announcers said the South Koreans gal's routine was tight....and I didn't see it.

    The NY Islanders NHL hockey team isn't too happy with the Olympics. Their captain, Zach Parise, tore his knee up, and is now out for the regular season.

    And Canada beats US men in hockey, 1-0. Glad I didn't stay home to watch it.

    Now the US has to keep Justin Bieber :D

    I thought it can't become much worse, but our athletes proved me wrong. Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle was caught doping. Now she blame a energy bar for it. Can you be more classless?

    Maria Riesch with another 4th place for Germany, biathlon women's relay with a crash early in the race that leads to a broken ski pole and a bad adjusted rifle, plus the horrible crash of Anna W├Ârner in the skicross race.

    Again, we dropped in the medal count, but maybe I'm just used to beeing under the top 3 countries for decades....

    Was anyone really surprised that a RUSSIAN girl won the ladies figure skating at the RUSSIAN Winter Olympics? Not me.

    Usually the "home team" has an bonus, wherever an event happens. Russian figure skaters dominate this sport for a long time now. A former German skater said it right lately: You fight for silver and bronze, gold is reserved for the Russians

    Those energy bars will get you every time. How in the hell is methylhexaneamine going to make you a better skier? Nevermind.....it's a form of speed.
