Huh? At what point did you get the notion that they didn't care about winning. They might have been relaxed in between runs but once they dropped onto the hill did you ever get the vibe that they weren't trying to win or were not excited when they did eventually win? That whole post has a lot of "get off my Olympic lawn" to it. Lighten up. Just because they have a familiar camaraderie with the other nations doesn't mean the snowboarders aren't competitive. Anyway, I got up this morning to watch the United States/Russia semifinals. Pretty intense game. I was ready to trade my coffee for bourbon during the extra shootouts.
