One thing though... thereís gotta be a better way rather than a shootout to determine the winner. It could have been anybodyís game at that point.

Congrats to US womens hockey team defeating Canada, their national sport, for the gold. Canada looked not so happy posing with their silver medals. One of the three podium recipients ripped her medal and ribbon off (*camera click*).

I got a laugh outta hearing that a member of a curling team got kicked out for using steroids. At last, some humor to these Olympics.

I'm sorry, but where the hell did the giant downhill ramp ski competition go? I heard that the winds were too strong. I remember at least a day or two of coverage in past Olympics for this event. These Olympics weren't played in ideal conditions I'm sorry to say. Reports say they had to water down the snow to soften it up. Some complained the ice hard snow damaged their equipment. A lot of tickets were sold to these events, but many stayed away from spectating because of the harsh winter conditions.

I also wondered about the ski jump. I just assumed I missed it.
