USA hockey cares not who we meet or when. All get trampled under-skate by the US juggernaut. Pray for mercy Canada. Perhaps mercy will be shown and your demise will be painless

No mercy will be shown.

What the fark is "Parallel Giant Slalom?" That sounds dangerous, even for THESE Olympics.
 
2014-02-18 11:50:19 PM  
Nice to see a quick green. But there's no early curling today, just snowboarding qualifying races at 12:15am
 
2014-02-18 11:58:21 PM  
Will there be more pouring rain on events today?

Cause that would be awesome in the most non awesome way possible for a Winter Olympics.

Almost as bad as getting pink eye as an announcer for the Olympics.

I believe it's just 2 racers going side by side down the hill. But the way these Olympics have gone, it could easily go bad.

Oh, I thought the last sentence was supposed to be "These questions and more will be answered on the next episode of Soap"

Not complaining. Only so much late-night curling I can take.

I want a gun that shoots figure skaters. Someone get on inventing that.

The picks at the toe of their skates would ruin the barrel on their way out.

BEAUTIFUL DAY!!!

And the temp is below freezing!!

I just noticed that the world feed opening video is missing 1 sport. Anyone want to guess?

/Just learned there's no Americans in the women's event here

So basically it's alpine skiing run under the same rules as longtrack speedskating. They run in pairs, but never mind the pairs.

For qualifications, yes.

For the finals, it's a 2 run knockout competition. Run 1- they start at the same time. Run 2- switch sides and winner of run 1 gets a headstart of their margin of victory in run 1.

Boarder down!

I fail to see the difference between this and the other slalom events

Two snowboarders going down parallel giant slalom courses at the same time, first one to the finish wins.

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

What will we biatch about now ;-)
 
2014-02-19 12:20:42 AM  
FUN FACT: we are already above the Vanouver attrition rate for both genders in PGS. One guy DNF'ed in 2010, and no women did.

Oh, the snow's getting them anyway. 2 boarders down already
 
2014-02-19 12:22:04 AM  
Correction: 3 boarders down. But they're getting back up to finish their 1st qualification run.
 
2014-02-19 12:22:43 AM  
Blue side lady kicking ass
 
2014-02-19 12:26:39 AM  
A good run on the red side
 
2014-02-19 12:27:58 AM  
Everyone's being tentative now with others slipping and falling.

Reminder: men's giant slalom run 1 at 2am ET
 
2014-02-19 12:28:20 AM  
Red lane continues to speed up
 
2014-02-19 12:28:42 AM  
A. Lavigne on course.

She may or may not be dating a speedsk8erboi.

I wish I wasn't thinking of the same joke, but I was.
 
2014-02-19 12:30:14 AM  
Wow that Russian had a decent run even ater 1st fall!
 
2014-02-19 12:30:26 AM  
Russia falls twice!
 
2014-02-19 12:32:17 AM  
Slushy Flatbottom isn't causing DNF's, but he's causing havoc nonetheless.
 
2014-02-19 12:33:27 AM  
We nearly had a full on crash there

More falls and DNFs for the Slush gods

Slow you roll, homes. You have the Czechs to worry about first. Eat your complimentary breadsticks.

And then we'll see if you have room for the main course.

How did the Netherlands have that slow chick in this event but the US has no one?

Kudos on the partial tank job against Finland to get a free spot in the semis.

Look at it this way: At least it's a not judged event and hey look -- they're racing each other!

Let's put on some friendly wagers.
 
2014-02-19 12:39:04 AM  
I'm pretty damn sure these BBC snowboard announcer guys get completely stoned every time they get on air.

Czechs schmecks. All they have is a dried dinosaur named Jagr to crush into a fine powder.

PowerSlacker: Kudos on the partial tank job against Finland to get a free spot in the semis.


What tank job? Finland had 15 shots on goal (7 in the final two periods + OT) and were thoroughly outplayed.

This is what we all have to content with on International ice surfaces with collapsing defense that aren't the slightest bit interested in playing actual hockey. They're all going to sit back, play soccer, and hope to win through penalty kicks.

It's going to be slow, ugly, boring, and low scoring, the pinnacle of anti-hockey.

Well, if you had been watching the CBC feed, you'd know that the German snowboarder posed in German Playboy this year.

/looks around at now empty thread.
 
2014-02-19 12:45:53 AM  
Ultimately, after all that, we have two DNF's.

I'm sure everyone will be back in 5 minutes making sharp knees comments and the like.

Which one? I see 3 German women listed in this

Men's qualifying run 1 now and we've had a slip

What's Danica Patrick doing there?

Austrian boarder falls not once, not twice but 3 times!
