Anyone watching? I just read an article about the womens US team beating the Canadian womens team. Then, one of the Canadian women team members took her silver medal off in frustration from losing the gold to the US. Sounds like bad sportsmanship.
Also, the US mens team won a gold medal in Curling. WOW! Who would have thunk (thought) that?
Last I heard, the 'Wegians had more gold than any other country.
GEAUX USA! USA

I was very happy with Sweden getting gold to upset Germany in mens biathlon relay. Ski cross country 20 miles, and shoot lights out - talk about breath control... And the firing line was gusting to something like 20 shocked2

Meh she took her medal off as she was emotional. Dont think she should of but who cares. Not to be a poor loser but I think USA still would of won but no game should be decided by a shoot out. Never thought id see Canada get more medals than the USA.

I think the Olympics is a craze use of money to build stadiums and arenas for 2 weeks worth of use. Most of the time they do not get reused for anything else.

I'd be in favor of having one for summer and the same for winter and just build the needed venues and keep them in use. Greece can have the summer Olympics. Find a place for the winter Olympics that will still have snow in 50 years.

I'd be fine also with two for summer and two for winter and rotate.

Actually, she’s #2 in the current World Cup downhill standings and had the fastest time in the most recent downhill event in PyeongChang - just a few days ago. Far from being expired.

Isn't she one of the low life's that broke their promise about moving from the US forever?
I wonder what the hockey sticks and uniforms looked like when the Roman Empire ruled under Augustus Caesar? Did they fill the Roman Colosseum with water and freeze it somehow for use as the hockey rink? What did they use for a hockey puck?

+1
At least she won't be seeing the peach blossoms in DC. Oh, wait a minute. She wasn't planning on going anyway.
Do you detect a thick smearing of sarcasm? I surely hope so. grin

I didn't watch any of the Olympics either. I was reading a news article and it led to an Olympics article, in which I posted about. I don't support any of the Olympic participants that used other reasons (I can't state, in fear of getting a vacation) to protest about, after the fact.

Leave it that she made some not so nice comments about the current climate in the US, and how she wouldn't go to the White House if invited.

If the comment above that she was one of the folks who vowed to leave the USA is true, that may set others to be upset too, especially since she essentially wears and represents our flag in this international event.

Not sure if the question was honest or an attempt to take this thread down a bad path, Ill assume the former, but any other discussion on this is off limits.
