Default Winter Olympics

Anyone else watching them?
The US is owning the podium, but that's expected with their funding and population compared to other winter nations.

What's especially fun to watch is the "Border Battle" between Canada and the US, especially in hockey. I'm watching the Canada/US hockey game now, and am GIDDY with excitement.

The only two things I care about in the Winter Olympics are Hockey and the Norwegian Curling Team's pants.

That being said, I'm watching the US/CAN game, it's some pretty exciting stuff. I'm going with Finland for the Gold though.

My take on the winter olympics is:

Winter X-games> winter olympics

Yeah, summer olympics and summer x-games are... different enough to be good in their own ways, but... the winter olympics really only have a couple games that I see as interesting.

And yet I cannot stop betting on curling :P Of course I am highly interested in the hockey game just to maybe laugh at fishy a little, but that's because I'm a bad person :P

4 min left in the game, not looking good. USA is winning 4-2 currently. Canada needs to make up two goals in only a few minutes to get into overtime. Looks doubtful.

Edit!

2:34min left, Canada has another goal! Still time to tie it up and get the win in overtime.

Less than 45 seconds left and it's 5-3 USA. Makes me pretty sad.
