Subby is American, the same American that's done all the other Paralympic threads, and 'sledge' is not a word unless it is followed by 'hammer'.

And then they needed the Brits to beat China and Slovakia to lose to Russia to force at least a 3-way tiebreaker for the last playoff spot at 4-5. The Slovaks did their job, losing 7-4. But China beat GB 6-3 and take the last playoff spot.

The semis will be Russia v Britain and Canada (who inexplicably lost to last place Finland 12-1) v China

No, Texas elected him. Texas is to the USA what Quebec is to Canada.

The other day in passing I watched the US squad get decimated by the Ruskies.

Canada, why u no like your crippled?

I'm watching a replay of USA-CAN online and the Canadians looked a bit shaky at times. Their goalie let in at least 1 bad goal (still waiting for the 3rd goal) and their power play was a mess.

I don't know if I'd use the word "decimated" but the Russians were clearly the better team that day. It was a deserved win.

An Italian sledge hockey player tested positive for a steroid 3 days before the start of the Paralympics. Link

If the Sochi 2014 website is correct, the player has not played in any of Italy's previous games.

Snowboarding making its first Paralympic appearance right now. Apparently it's not going to be an actual race race. They'll send each boarder down three times and their best two times count.

Frankly, thank heavens for that.

OK, three things I would've done to improve this course

1) Make it wider
2) Have the turns banked a bit higher or make the banking gradual
3) Eliminate the ending "jump" since no one's going to likely jump that.

I hate to say it, but this just kind of... isn't working. At all. Maybe one out of every ten of them looks like they're carrying any speed whatsoever; the rest are just easing their way down the course.

It's sledge hockey, subby.
It's a surprisingly fun game to watch, I'd love to try and play it
