America sucks.

A bit late for submission, no?

Also, there's Slushy McBottom action as the ladies attempt the halfpipe, as well as the Nordic Combined, subby

FUN FACT, AGAIN: There are four American members of the IOC (the full list is here). They are:

*Anita DeFrantz, bronze medalist in rowing in Montreal 1976 (member of executive board)
*James Easton, former head of Easton Sports, honorary president of International Archery Federation
*Larry Probst, head of Electronic Arts
*Angela Ruggiero, four-time Olympic women's hockey medalist, and contestant on season 6 of The Apprentice

Turns out it's the second I post publicly wondering about it.

Tomorrow we vaporise Canadian women and rob them of gold.

Thank you for your support in this glorious endeavor Ms Ruggiero!

...And the first skier goes intentionally off course.
 
2014-02-20 02:47:10 AM  
AND HERE WE GO WITH MEN'S SKICROSS QUALIFYING!

...and the first guy just decides to wander off somewhere.
 
2014-02-20 02:48:42 AM  
Okay, I've been preparing for this for the past several hours by drinking beer and watching "Farscape."  Let's do this!

I have a bad feeling about what things are gonna look like with 6 guys all going full speed on this course. They're all reining themselves in for the seeding.
 
2014-02-20 02:51:55 AM  
FUN FACT: Fully half of Canadas IOC members are named Dick Pound

Update: was a #DidNotFinish for 1st skier Alex Fiva. Important because DNF means he's still qualified for finals, DNS would not.

From the Twitter feed.

Nordic Combined LARGE HILL will be starting in about 4 min.

So, two IMMEDIATE notes for the Ski Jumping.

1) There are flies buzzing around one of the cameras
2) Russia is REALLY trolling the jumpers with a outline of a DOLPHIN at the bottom of the hill.
 
2014-02-20 03:05:57 AM  
A French skier named Midol.  There's a joke in there somewhere, but I can't find it through all the beer.

France surrendered to the pain of the period?
 
2014-02-20 03:10:16 AM  
I SWEAR they are playing CHARLIE DANIELS at the bottom of the Ski Cross Course.  I THOUGHT it was South's Gonna do it Again.
 
2014-02-20 03:11:14 AM  
I love these toked up BBC cross announcers so much. The slightly slower one, I think Ed, just started to make a comment about how Eva Samkova can probably grow her own mustache because she's so masculine. Didn't quite stop himself in time.
 
2014-02-20 03:27:20 AM  
And we have our first crash of men's ski cross, during seeding.

How bad was it?  I'm back and forth between that and Ski Jumping?
 
2014-02-20 03:31:28 AM  
I can't help but wonder if the pads on the ski cross course were put there before or after the Russian skier broke her back.

Not too bad. Not like those early women's SBX crashes, but still banged up. He took a turn wrong.

Women's Bronze Curling match is up, nice.
Go Scottish Hotties!

Results after the Ski Jump part of the Nordic Combined.  The US medaled for the first time in this EVER last year.  Will Todd Lodwick and Bill Demong...even in 8th place after the jump...we still have a chance.
 
2014-02-20 03:50:51 AM  
The Scottish are Hotties, but so was the Swiss Miss who just threw the rock (the one with the glasses)

Don't forget Jennifer Jones has a chance to wrap up a perfect 11-0 record in the women's curling gold medal match at 5:30/8:30 pst/est.

For now, the bronze medal game is on and this is our last chance to gaze longingly deep into Eve Muirhead's crystal blue eyes.

/Carmen Schaeffer too

Chuck Norris and a BB Gun?

There are a FEW curlers I would love to stare into the eyes of.

Yeah the Swiss team is definitely cute, too.
The one with the long black hair (Carmen Schafer) is a real hottie.
 
2014-02-20 03:58:56 AM  
Damn, good shot by the Swiss chick.

And Anna Sloan. And Vicky Adams..... there are A LOT of women in curling with blue eyes. I think we just notice it more because it's one of the few sports where the camera focuses on their faces for several seconds whenever they make a play. I don't think you get that kind of motionless up close intensity in any other sport.
 
2014-02-20 04:11:59 AM  
Haha, announcer noticed her but blue doll eyes, too.

You know the thing about a skip, she's got... lifeless eyes, blue eyes, like a doll's eye. When she shoots at ya, doesn't seem to be curlin'. Until she sweeps ya and those stones roll over the house. And then, ah then you hear that terrible high pitch screamin' and the ice turns red and spite of all the poundin' and the hollerin' they all come in and rip you to pieces.

dumb play by the Swiss, trying to steal 3.
 
2014-02-20 04:17:16 AM  
Swiss keep Britain to 1. 2-1 Swiss Misses after 3.
