Olympic Update: The only sport that matters

Erika Brown (USA) during women’s curling practice at Ice Cube Curling Center.
“It’s not about can you make a takeout or a draw, it’s about can you perform under pressure. And that’s what every Olympic champion does. It’s at that moment, can they do it. And that in itself is about preparation, to be able to do it at that moment. So that’s what I think all the teams are going for.”

Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

And the big game between the two pictures above came out with Canada beating Great Britain, 9-6. Canada is 3-0 in round robin so far.

Oh, and Canada beat the USA in womens hockey this morning as well.

What rules are you whining about?

I mean, Canada gets called for too many men on the ice with a minute to go. I looked and there were no men on the ice. Don't get that penalty at all.

Didn't see it. I did see them demolish the Swiss last weekend though.
