I am so depressed over the early exit by team Canada from the men's hockey tournament. How does an all-star team get shut-out in three games, one of which was against the Swiss! The *only* consolation in that loss was that both Swiss goals were scored by a Canadian and they have a Canadian coach, but that is not much consolation. I guess the lack of the lucky loonie was a big factor.
A couple other Olympic notes:
1) Who decided it would be a good idea to put the USA snowboarders in pinstripes? I just don't see pinstripes making it in snowboarding culture.
2) What is with the need of NBC to use constant sport analogies in their olympic coverage? Snowboard cross is 'the nascar of the winter olympics', waiting at the top of the hill is like 'icing the kicker', skating warm-ups are like 'a basketball shoot-around'. Are these analogies really helpful? I certainly hope that they are not necessary.
3) Which feud was funnier: the Italian ice dancers or the American speed skaters? I say the Italian ice dancers. That girl had a glare like I haven't seen since . . . .
