Ladies, say hello to Stefan Read, part of Canada's young and upcoming ski jumping team. Stefan will be jumping in qualifying on the big hill today, but don't expect any medals from him or any Canadian, they'll probably be happy to make it to the finals. If he does, go easy on him during the celebration party; he's only a spry 5'9", 132 lbs. Half of it abs and smoldering eyes.
Around the Olympics yesterday, GOLD MEDAL BITCHES!!! Christine Nesbitt takes the 1000m long track. She was the overwhelming favourite coming in and she actually lived up to the billing. That alone is a brilliant accomplishment imho. Thank Darwin for the long blades, because...
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST WE SUCK AT HOCKEY. Not to get all alarmist here (too late), but fuck a 3-2 OT win AGAINST THE FUCKING SWISS AGAIN THOSE FUCKING SWISS was really unpleasant. A PP failure of epic proportions. Sure, call it a great performance by Hiller, and sure, the boys got it done in the end, but fuck, I still say that was a failure. All sorts of weaknesses exposed. I know I say this a lot, but meh.
In more fun hockey news, Jaro was dominant against the Russians, leading the Slovaks to a 2-1 (SO) upset. 36 saves and he stopped Ovie twice in the shootout. Just wow.
