    Exactly.

    And yesterday at 7:00PM they had indoor track & field on instead of the Olympics on NBCSN.

    I am watching the biathletes get their medals, but no, they get a stuffed tiger. I think this would not make me happy. What they do in the Winter Olympics is give them their medals at a nightly ceremony for all winners that day.

    I would like my medal at the venues as they do in the Summer Olympics.

    Watching them hold stuffed tigers is quite amusing.

    Of course, I am NEVER getting one, but if I did....

    Red is the sixth of seven children. He has four brothers Brendan, Creighton, Malachi, and Trevor and two sisters Asher and Tieghan. The Gerard squad came to Pyeongchang in full force.

    I felt terrible for the German who had been dominant up to that point but made one tiny mistake to cost himself a medal. And after that, how close Mazdzer actually came to gold!

    Throwing up is totally acceptable. Donovan McNabb did it in the Super Bowl.

    But even Johnny Manziel wouldn't even bring the other stuff up, or at least the popping Xanax part, even after beating 'Bama. It's not a good look.

    Somewhat embarrassingly, I think that the kid thinks that he's clever. While an effeminate gay guy, or an effeminate men's figure skater is nothing new, I think that he's getting off on thinking that he's one of the first to unashamedly wear it on his sleeve. It's more of a credit to the times than it is him be daring. In today's world it's hardly that daring anymore. Also, he's way too young to be pretending that he's so seasoned, as in when he said something about being around the block a few times, or that it's not his first rodeo. The more he talks the more he just sounds like a kid with a air of arrogance about him. Learning a bit of humility couldn't hurt. Following in the footsteps of Johnny Weir, it's not too hard to imagine that 10-15 years down the road the two of them teaming up on broadcasts. He's definitely a good skater, and while he claims that he doesn't want the gay thing to be a distraction, who'd believe it if he'd try to deny standing in front of the mirror and kissing it while flaunting to himself his position in ice skating history? The kid is as vain as the day is long. Sure he has striking looks, but dial it down a bit bro... you're embarrassing yourself.

    The conditions were terrible, but Jamie Anderson brings home the gold in women's Slope Style.

    She became the first female snowboarder to win two Olympic golds.

    Bummer, Casey Andrinja went for it all, but had a bad landing on his second jump during his mogul run and ended up 4th.

    I don't think he would have beaten Kingsbury for the gold, but feel pretty certain it would have been a silver medal run if he had stuck it.

    USA is currently 5th in the overall medal count, and tied for second for most gold medals. We've gotten golds in men's and women's slopestyle snowboarding, a silver in men's singles luge, and a bronze in figure skating team event.
