I thought I'd read that these were some of the least watched winter games in some time. Congratulations to all the competitors and their families. My very best to all the people that enjoy the games and love cheering for your favorites. Here's to the the thrill of victory and the the agony of de' feet...

I guess that's CBC showing skating, CNBC showing Shark Tank and local NBC showing extreme local fluff.
So glad the Olympics are over here, phew.

I tried watching some of the mass-start speed skating earlier today. I didn't get it. Just too friggin' weird.

I watched it this afternoon. It made absolutely no sense to me. The only thing I got out of it was that the announcers loved saying 'sprint lap.'

I've stopped trying to understand it and am just enjoying long track with more than two skaters at time.

My favorite was how at the end of the first semifinal, the world feed commentator was like "and that's the last of the intermediate sprints and now we'll get down to the big finish" and all the skaters slow down to a stop and are just standing around, and there's just silence and eventually "or... that was the end of the race. i think i need a calculator up here to keep track of the laps"

IOC executive board recommends not lifting Russia ban

The International Olympic Committee executive board has recommend not to lift the Russian suspension for the Winter Olympics closing ceremony later.
A final decision on whether the Russian athletes will be allowed to parade under their own flag or remain under the Olympic flag is expected soon.
The neutral Olympic athletes from Russia (OAR) team, comprised of athletes who proved ther were clean before the Games, have competed under the Olympic flag.

GOOD!

Two OAR Athletes tested positive during these games,,,and I am sure there will be more after these games are over.  The Russian punishment was JUST.
