  1. DPRK enters. The presidential box on it's feet, including an American who I don't recognize.
  2. Cbc is cheating. Not live. Delayed to squeeze in commercials but not skip stuff.
  3. Well there you have it. A strong Swedish team beat an unusually off Korean team to capture gold. I was hoping Korea would won at home, but still pretty amazing top cine in second. King of Sweden was there, but the CBC commentators didn't say anything- I don't think they know who he is.
  4. Norwegian Mixed Doubles officially awarded bronze! Don't know if there was a ceremony https://www.pyeongchang2018.com/cn/game-time/results/OWG2018/en/curling/athlete-profile-n3024298-magnus-nedregotten.htm
  5. Well *I* feel bad for Eve. Tough to win a bronze at the last Olympics and want to improve, only to come in 4th place. 4th is the worst! There will be no Canadian team and 2 Asian team on Women's podium. On the men's side, I woke up the news that the Americans won gold?!?! They scored 5 (five!) in the eight end. I didn't catch them in the video but King Gustav of Sweden and Ivanka Trump were in attendance.
  6. Golden showers! Brady Lehman wins in ski cross!
  7. Wow. Canada is out of women's tournament! Team GB is in! When did Korea get so good?
  8. Virtue and Moir beat Papadakis and Cizeron by less than one point! Had Papadakis not had problems with her wardrobe they might have taken away the gold medal!
  9. Never seen the Canadian curlers perform this poorly before at the Olympics. Still cheering on the men's team. The women's team I no longer care about. Hope Eve Muirhead and team GB can make it to the playoffs!
  10. Such a great day! Gold in bobsled (technically it was yesterday), ski half pipe, and ice dance! Go Canada Go!
  11. There have been reports that Alexander Krushelnitsky (Olympic Athlete from Russia) who won the bronze medal in mixed doubles with his team mate Anastasia Bryzgalova has tested positive for doping. Norway placed 4th.
  12. Hogline Controversy In Draw 7's game between GB and Sweden on Sunday, Muirhead was caught on a hogline violation. The stones have a sensor that will light green for clean throws, and red if the stone is touched over the hogline. This happened in the critical 11th end which Sweden went on to when. In video replay, it appear Muirhead's hand was not close to the stone at the hogline. However, video replay is not used. The official tested the stone afterwards and it appeared to be working. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/winter-olympics/43102783
  13. I got my pair but my phone doesn't have a lot of memory left so I don't think I'm gonna install.
  14. Her right? Yes. Should she have done it? Probably not. I'm supporting (Eve) Muirhead in Women's tournament now!
  15. I just saw something I didn't like in the fifth end of DEN versus CAN. Canada was trailing and making several misses. One of the Danes burnt a rock just a tiny bit. Rachel Homan removed it from play to the visible disappointment of the Danish skip. I am not a curling expert but the Canadian commentators cautiously disagreed with Homan's decision. I thought she took advantage of an honest and immaterial mistake while frustrated with poor performance.
  16. Canadian Men undefeated. Canadian Women with no wins. Is it fair to be nervous??
  17. Pairs Results: Gold- Aliona Savchenko / Bruno Massot (Germany) Silver - Sui Wenjing / Han Cong (China) Bronze - Meagan Duhamel / Eric Radford (Canada) I'm a proud Canadian and am thrilled Duhamel and Radford made it on the podium, but the Germans' performance was truly stunning! Technically strong and very elegant. Some of the moves were just...wow! Props to Savchenko who was finally able to win a gold medal at her fifth Olympics! On the other hand the OAR who were second after the short program had an awful program. The music seemed more suited to an exhibition skate and their facial expressions made it seem like even they were not enjoying it. Also had technical flaws which left the off the podium.
