    2. Yes, Plushenko was the only one that pulled off a quad out of anyone, but his jumps were sloppy...many of them that were close to having him fall since his body was really tilted in mid air.

    3. If there's one thing that Plushenko really fails at, it's artistry. Seriously his foot work and choreography was terrible, it wasn't going to save him from his less then perfect jumps.

    Just something I needed to get off my chest.
    After Plushenko pulled off the quad, it seemed like the rest of the routine was just an attempt to "run out the clock" as they say in football.

    Lysacek definitely deserved to win!

    I wonder why NBC is doing such a crappy job this time around. Of course, I'd also like to see coverage from Germany's ARD as Katarina Witt is broadcasting for them.
    NBC had great online coverage for the summer games in China. They've made it very difficult to view stuff online for the Winter games so I haven't watched anything online.

    i'm gonna go back to figure skating.

    i told my dad last night "how come all the guys look like they're prancing in a field of flowers during the artistic footwork? how come they can't be masculiner and be like a bull fighter or something? i'm pretty sure it could work"

    and then also i thought johny weir was underscored or something

    I loved the caption for this:
    As well as picking up a bunch of BRITS music awards this week, Lady Gaga found time to compete at Vancouver. (Love the frock, Johnny Weir).

    ^Oh look, it's Adam Lambert.

    Well, I'll be signing off here for a few days. I'm heading off to work soon and after work I'm driving straight to Vancouver. I'll take a bunch of photos and have a trip report up after I get back on Wednesday.

    Go Canada Go!

    Team USA has Ducks players too... and that's what's making it hard for who I want to cheer for. Not only do I want to cheer for Canada because of the Ducks players, but also because Sid "The Kid" Crosby. I love Sidney Crosby. I knew Sid was going to make a big impact for the sport of Hockey before the sports writers did. He's always been a great player.

    Off topic (well sorta) but I see the same thing in Dan Sexton. He's burst onto the Ducks roster and has really made a big impact and in my opinion, quite a name for himself

    Apolo did great! Coming back from behind like that! And congrats to him for making history!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics -Feb 12-Feb 28, 2010-

    Congratulations to Mr. Ono on an outstanding achievement.

    On the subjest of NBC's coverage, having nothing to do with tape delay, I got a kick out of a letter to the editor in the Saturday sports page, from a Mr. Mel Powell of Sherman Oaks:

    Even though I'm Jewish, I've decided to give up something for Lent. I'm giving up saying anything negative.

    This means I can't send you the letter I want to write with my opinion of NBC's "all-USA, all-the-time, no-one-else-matters, is-there-anyone-else-even-here, nope-just-us Americans" coverage of the Olympics.

    Sorry. No letter. Maybe next time.
    Cute.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    I'm very upset I'm going to miss most of the USA vs. Canada game today. I have a softball game at 4:45.

    Oh, and I like Curling, but it's on WAY too much.

    Congrats to Ohno! He's my favorite to watch during these games. Anyone wonder why he yawns so much before he races though?

    It's being shown live. You can "tape" it for later showing when it's not live.

    Have you learned nothing from NBC, or this thread?

    I'm upset I'm missing the Russian game. Yesterday they had hockey on the cable channel all day, but now that there are three games on people want top see they only broadcast one....I hate NBC.

    I will be able to see the USA game. I Only hope they keep focus on that game sand not 5 other sports at the same time ...oh and not thew boring interviews and other crap they always put on nbc.

    From what I've seen, the hockey games they've shown on their cable channels (like MSNBC tonight) are shown pretty much untouched.

    The only hockey game, to my my knowledge, being shown on the main network is the gold medal game next Sunday.
