Good to see order restored to the universe yesterday and today with Norway's wins.

Yes it's nice to see that the Olympics have so many freaking ways to give medals to who can jog on their funny little skis faster than anyone else.
Bonus points for adding shooting toy guns and combining men and girls together too, just to make sure Norway doesn't run low on medals.

If they could win anything that any other country cared about, that may be a little more impressive, but that doesn't seem to be the point.

I almost caught myself rooting for Latvia there. It would have been a spectacular upset. To paraphrase the commentator " A twenty K team taking out a 149 million dollar team"!

Canada better up their game!

Sketch, that's what is so cool about it. It was the one medal the Russians had to have.

Bruce, if you want to make an analogy from the thirties how about the Winter War of '39 when the Soviets invaded Finland and got their asses kicked.
Those Finns are tough and crafty.

My TR will be reading your TR about leaving Canada when your country implodes due to losing to the US in men's and women's hockey.

Careful how you use the word dominate there Mike. Our guys almost didn't dominate good enough today.

Ask Ward. He's got the term dominate dialed.

Yah they only had 60 shots vs Latvias 15.. They were in the Lativan zone 70% of the time...

Not dominating at all. Lol

Gudlevskis had the best game of his career today!!!!

They need work on their power play thats for sure

Canada men haven't even turned it up to 70% yet. I'm just glad I won't have to paint a sickle/hammer on my face now. Looks like your off the hook too Alexey since our bet was based on a Russia/Canada gold medal game.


Banks, that's some funny sh#t. If I'm coming down there tho it's for one reason only:

Dry rock & to climb & get drunk with WTF or willbeer or you or anyone else here who can take a joke that wants to have fun.

This excludes that crusty, old patriotic poseur named Ward of course. He is way too smart for me to hang with & besides I don't trust people who don't gamble on their country when challenged by foreigners. Deserters I think they're called down there.



Edit- oops I hope that's not too much for u there Ward, my bad if it is but be aware I'm somewhere around 1/2 joking. With all posts to this thread.

WTF skiing backwards???? That's not fun. It looks cool for a couple of seconds but that's it. I thought skiing was supposed to be fun.

If I were judge I'd give points for fun.

That kid with the blond dreds would get extra for the spectacular yard sale.
