Cross Country skiers make runners seem like normal, sane human beings.

There's a t shirt that runners wear that says "My sport is your sport's punishment". Cross country skiers must look at that and laugh since making someone cross country ski would be cruel and unusual punishment.

The gold medal in hockey coming down to a shootout is horsefeathering terrible. I don’t particularly like the 4 on 4 overtime either but I understand it. I get not wanting the other elimination games to go on forever for fairness sake. In the NHL, either both teams are in the same boat for the next game or, if it’s a Game 7 that goes forever, even if fatigue costs the winner Game 1 of the next series, they’ve got time to make it up. But it’s the gold medal game. Let them play it out. Even if it’s 4 on 4 the entire time, just don’t go to a shootout.

Counterpoint: Anything that keeps Canadia from winning a gold medal in hockey is good and wonderful and their tears are like a magic elixir that cleanses men's souls.

It was an entertaining match. Close through 7 ends until the US dropped a 5 spot in the 8th to all but clinch it.

Every time I see an Australian being mildly funny makes me fairly sad that John Clarke died.
