    Both Hamelin brothers in the finals for 1000m :techman:

    The Koreans were trying to physically bump the boys off :wtf:

    The two-man bobsled seems kind of anticlimatic after the luge and skeleton.

    Yeah, that was stupid. Good thing that guy didn't qualify for the finals, a mob might have formed in the stands.

    Good luck to the brothers, let's get them both on the podium!

    Wow, that women's 1500m B final was booooorrring.... :p

    The A final should be more interesting... if only because there's 8 skaters. :eek:

    OMG, if Costas/NBC describes Simon Ammann as having "Harry Potter looks" one more time I think I'm going to scream.

    Everything that could go bad for Canada today went bad.

    So how much crap do you think the first guy who thought to get out a broom in a curling match must have gotten all those years ago?

    Damn the Koreans. If there is one thing I've learned in this week of Short Track, it's that the Koreans are the equivilant to the Lakers, Yankees, Red Sox, and Maple Leafs, teams you love to hate/despise with a passion. You saw it in all the races. In the SF, when both Koreans won and when that one other Korean lost, the reaction from the crowd said it all. Then in the finals, if only Ohno hadn't had a mess up (Personally, he looked like he was pushed), who knows if he had gotten gold. Very disappointing he had to settle for Bronze.

    "Super" is an exaggeration I think, but the commentator on Austrian tv did sound like she was having an orgasm when Fischbacher finished first. ;)

    Watching the Canada/US Curling game :techman:

    I want to start Curling now! It looks like fun with the actual logistics and strategy that's used :)
