Johnny Weir skated very well, but I think his routine was very light. Not much complexity. He skated much better at the U.S.Nationals. If the only time you ever saw Jeremy Abbott was here at the Olympics you might not understand how he made it there. But he was absolutely spectacular at the U.S. Nationals!

I'm pretty excited for the USA-Canada hockey game on Sunday.


That will be interesting
Unfortunately I have to catch some sleep when it's played, and I'll miss Finland - Sweden too cause I'll be at work

Amy Williams had some awesome runs in the skeleton yesterday and took home the gold, the first medal for Great Britain.

1000m men's short track tonight. If Ohno medals he'll be the most decorated Winter Olympian in history.

Are any of the Oriental skaters not just totally adorable? They all looked great to me.

"Oriental"? The word''s Asian.

But yeah, the Korean one in women's figure skating was really good.

You're right, I checked my Apple dictionary and is said Oriental was an outdated word and is considered offensive by Asians. Sorry to my Asian friends.

Men's Ice Hockey Semi Finals;
Canada - Slovakia
Finland - USA

Will be interesting to see how those turns out, Canada was awesome against Russia today, and although I'm hopeful for Finland, I doubt we will beat USA.

Men's Ice Hockey;;

As I suspected, Finland lost against USA, the final will be interesting to see, and now my hopes are Finland will beat Slovakia for the bronze medal, but will be quite difficult in my opinion, they put up a good fight against Canada.

I'm watching a tape of the Men's Curling Bronze Medal Game and a Swede made an amazing shot! There's a circle that's 12 feet wide. There were stones (42 lbs of granite each) at basically 12:00, 4:00, and 9:00 and a Swede named Kraupp shot his rock 93 feet down the ice and hit the 12:00 one, which hit the 4:00 one and they both went out. After hitting the 12:00 rock the shooter knocked out the 9:00 rock. Pretty amazing! I just love Curling!
