    Yes there is also the following in curling:

    Thinking time
    The hack
    The house
    The button
    The hog line
    The hammer
    The skip
    Ends

    LOVE curling. I find it fascinating.

    Canadian women's curling team is 0-2. They won last Olympics in dominant fashion and are heavy favorites for 2018.

    Big fail if they don't even medal. (Think Women USA soccer last Olympics.)

    A better comparison would be Michelle Kwan. Jacobellis has won lots of non-Olympic competitions which still matter in the overall scheme of things.

    Hoping the bootleg hockey team can even qualify at this point, tied 1-1 with Slovakia in the 2nd, lets see if they can exploit this power play.

    EDIT: And the SLOVAKS got two shots off on OUR power play smh

    Looks like I spoke too soon. Since that win, he went 2-4 and are now 3-4. They are just barely in the playoff picture.

    Still that last victory against Canada was huge! It is the first time USA has beaten Canada at the Olympics ever! They needed to win the last three including against Canada to even have an outside shot at playoffs. Shuster got the hardest of the three.

    Interesting story about half-pipe skier Elizabeth Swaney. She's an American but with Hungarian ancestry. So she skied for them. Nothing too unusual about that except here is her run:



    Some people are criticizing her for making a mockery of the sport. Others are saying it is no different than that Mexican cross country skier that finished last.

    Opinions?
