Well it's about time!  I wonder why they snow on the halfpipe looks less slushy in the early rounds held in the day, than in the final round held at night.  You'd think it would get more solid after the sun goes down.

I'm eating mac and cheese and a salad. It's delicious.

You see subby, the mods were right, because human interest stories and pro-Americanism always trump "sports" on NBC coverage.

If a Bunny makes the mods green a thread and no one, shows up, does it make a sound?

I logged on at 7 expecting for there to be a thread, and then there wasn't, and then it took ten minutes to make my damn stupid tablet behave. I almost got up and went upstairs. Anyway, I'll try to remember to submit one earlier tomorrow.

Wow, seeing that non-goal goal in HD on my big screen, as opposed to a crappy stream on my laptop, it's absurdly obvious the whistle was blown before the puck went in.

Oooohhhh, speedskating. I don't even know the results, bonus.

Yep. Did we ever get an explanation on that or was it just because of a shiatty ref?

I still think the Russian uniforms look like cheap pantyhose on the lower legs. The kind that comes in a plastic shell for 99 cents.

I've been gone all day at work in meetings and at schools since I left until I got to the thread, so I have no idea.

I think all the uniforms this year are a fashion travesty.  Especially those silver circles in the crotch area of USA's uniforms.  Supposedly they're made of teflon to avoid friction, but can't they made teflon black??

I hate that kind!!

I mean... if one were to wear pantyhose, then I would imagine... that one would... hate that kind.

Dammit, I meant to say Netherlands.  This guy already has one guy, so why not another?

Soo... what's the deal with the USA-CAN women's hockey re-viewing? I know it was on earlier live... but is NBC really not replaying it on primetime? On any of their six farking channels? I looked at the listings, and I must have missed it, right?
 
2014-02-12 08:48:50 PM  
This is so amusing. My seven year old son, who has never given the first crap about sports, is all of a sudden "oh, speed skating. The guy in the red and black is from Canada, and I like Canada. The guy in the orange got a medal the other day."

I think it was on MSNBC earlier this afternoon or something. I'm sure they won't show it in primetime, because they're poopheads.

I think they already did the replay earlier this afternoon.  They'll probably never show hockey in primetime because they NBC doesn't show any event in its entirety in primetime.  We only get regurgitated scraps.

I was the same way at his age, but it was Carl Lewis at the summer olympics. Then again, I think we got a short primer on it at beforehand at elementary school, if I remember correctly.

Today's results, unless you believe sports aren't news.

Thanks for the hockey info guise. At least it's not as egregious. I'll just keep an eye out in the future.

It just reminds me of the time he was four and I went, look, a helicopter, and he was all, that's not a helicopter, it's a Chinook. Just... the odd things he knows and remembers, for a kid who can't remember to flush the toilet.

The ref didn't make the call, it went to the booth for review. While under review they showed the replay several times and the whistle blew well prior to it being in the net. When the review officials sent the call down it was a goal. The only way this could be called a goal was if they reviewed the play with no audio. It wasn't marginal or even remotely so.

Good thing she didn't go head first into the fencing. Yikes.

Canada and Russia also play in the morning too.

Damn, that looked bad!
