    Watching them fall and knock each other over is fun too.

    In other news, the USA beat Russia 3-2 by shootout in men's Hockey today.
    I am okay with shootouts in prelims, but if it ends up being a deciding factor for a medal, not so much okay with it.
    Canada plays Finland on Sunday in what will be the most challenging game up to this point. We beat Norway and Austria, but its not a real challenge until we play one of the big three ( Russia, USA, Sweden). Although the Finns can be a surprise from time to time as well due to their elite goaltending.

    Skeleton racers are quickly gaining an reputation for coming up with unique designs for their helmets, much like goalies in hockey.
    This is a great one from a competitor in Sochi.

    The games I have watched haven't been overly physical. Its harder to paste somebody into the boards on the bigger European ice surface.
    But there have been a few crunchers.

    The Xcountry relay was outstanding and I am really looking forward to the men's mass start 50km next Sunday. Pissed of that the 15 has been postponed till tomorrow as working.
    Don’t say, “It’s been a good day” till sundown.
    Don’t say, “She’s a good wife” till she’s buried.
    Don’t say, “It’s a good sword” till you’ve tested it.
    Don’t say, “She’s a good girl” till she’s married off.
    Don’t say, “The ice is safe” till you’ve crossed it.
    Don’t say, “The beer is good” till you’ve drunk the last of it.

    From Hávamál, a Norse poem

    Yes..they have had to postpone several events due to the fog.
    Local kids Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir couldn't repeat as champions in Ice Dance and will settle for silver.
    Tessa was fortunate to be able to skate at all,she has had a couple of surgeries and word is after the 2014 World Championships she could be retiring from the amateur circuit.
    If she does I'm sure Scott will follow suit.
