  1. Women's 1km speed skating was just on. Favourite after favourite flop leaving the winner to be...
    Jorien ter Mors for The Netherlands.

    Say what you want, but when the Netherlands athletes keep going out and smacking records, they deserve to win as much as they can.

  2. Just watched but holy shit, Shawn White's half-pipe routine was incredible. It didn't even look real.

    I have been loving the white tiger mascot!

    Not a great skate for the Knierim... or at least not great from Chris.

  5. Aljona Savchenko finally - on her FIFTH Olympics - wins her gold medal. I'm so happy. SO, SO happy.

    Aljona getting the gold!!! So happy for the German pair.

    Nice to see the Canadian team get Bronze too.

  7. Got up at 5:30AM to LISTEN to the second run in women's giant slalom. Hjalp
  8. I’m soooo happy for the German team. And I’m quite pleased for Megan and Eric too.

  9. Man, pairs skating was SO STRESSFUL to watch for this Canadian. Super happy for Aljona and Bruno, and of course overjoyed that Meagan and Eric took the bronze!
  10. Loved watching pairs. So much talent, and the judges got it exactly right. Such a thrill to see Savchenko finally get a gold and it was richly deserved.

    I wish the US could field a decent pairs team. But hey, we were shit at ice dancing for what felt like generations before we started reaching the podium, so there's always hope!

  12. Wow at:
    - Mikaela Shiffrin winning the giant slalom which is not even her speciality.
    - Aljona Savchenko winning Olympic gold with Bruno Massot after trying it for ages with Robin Szolkowvy.
    - Spain getting their third ever Winter Olympic medal in snowboard with Javier Fernandez yet to compete.
  13. Unless Mikaela Shiffrin gets bored of it all and decides to retire when she's 25 or has a career-altering injury, she is going to become the icon in alpine skiing. I could see her winning gold medals in both super G and downhill as well next Olympics, seeing the development she's made in those disciplines.

  15. Not Martin Fourcade missing two targets in the final shooting and staying out of the medals in the biathlon individual event and Sven Kramer flopping in 10000m again.
  16. Did anyone catch bit of Ice Hockey? Canada was good against Switzerland but Korean goalie for sure the highlight of the day, 38 saves against really composed Czechs

  17. Watching Savchenko get her gold was such a moment of triumph that I pray for every Olympics.
  18. Mens or womens? I’m scared our mens team is going to flop because all the best Canadian players are in the NHL.

    YAY TJ! Also a silver in Luge Relay (which was surprisingly entertaining)! Canada is sleighing.
