    Today

    20:00 Snow Boarding Finals - Ladies Half Pipe
    The US has 4 out of the 12 qualifiers. While it won't be easy, winning all three medals is not out of the realm of possibility. Would love to see Kelly Clark tear this up, and walk away with a medal in what will be her 5th and final Olympics.

    21:30 Alpine Skiing - Men's Combined (Downhill)
    Doubtful that the US will challenge for a medal, but this is one of the most exciting of the winter sports.

    23:00 Snow Boarding Qualifying - Men's Half Pipe
    This is almost certainly Shawn White's final Olympics. Hopefully he's got some magic left.

    01:00 Alpine Skiing - Men's Combined (Sloalum)

    05:00 Short Track Speed Skating Quarter Finals - Ladies 500m

    05:30 Short Track Speed Skating Heats 1 thru 8 - Men's 1000m

    05:30 Luge - Women's singles Run 3

    06:05 Curling - Mixed Doubles Gold Medal Round CAN vs SUI

    07:10 Ice Hockey - Women's USA vs OAR


    This is not a full list. These are the ones that folks on here have seemed to show an interest in.


    For those on the edge of your seats. Men's and women's team curling starts tomorrow.

    19:05 Men's - USA vs SUI

    00:05 Women's - USA vs JPN

    USA is still in 5th place for overall medal count after the Monday action wrapped up, but Norway, Germany and the Netherlands all added to their overall medal counts while the US didn't earn any additional medals today. Norway and Netherlands also picked up a gold medal each.

    Are Olympic athletes from Russia not a part of the team total medal count?

    They're listed. As of now they only have 1 silver and 1 bronze. Listed as OAR.

    Why is Rebecca Lowe an anchor on NBC? Seems very curious to hear a Brit anchoring American coverage of the Olympics. Does NBC not have anyone else in their stable to do it? (Not trying to sound elitist, just curious.) Did the fact that they had the Super Bowl keep Al Michaels and/or Dan Patrick from being part of the Olympics?

    Not sure what the judges are seeing. Kelly Clark should have gotten a much higher score.

    That was awful.

    I agree. I don't think it was enough for silver but should have probably gotten 3rd.

    Cloe Kim just decimated the field.

    Chloe is the female version of Shawn White. She is just so far ahead of the competition, and is still going to get better.

    Don't know how many of you follow snow boarding.

    I sure would have loved to see Kelly Clark walk off with one more Olympic medal. She is one of the primary reasons the US snowboarding team is so good. Not only is she the most decorated athlete in her sport (men and women) she is a super human being that has put the sport, her team, her country, and her faith at the front.

    Watching the women's finals last night was crazy. Chloe Kim was just absurd. I might be in the minority, but I didn't feel like Clark was better than the other American girl that took Bronze.

    Felt bad for the 17 year old Australian chick that lost a few teeth on her final run. That looked painful.

    Is it just me or does the coverage of these Olympics seem sub-par? And I agree...Clark deserved the bronze.

    Just got done watching the finals of the women's luge. Emily Sweeney of the US with one of the worst crashes that I've ever seen in luge. She eventually got up and walked off, and at the end of the coverage even did an interview. What's weird is that there was absolutely zero replay of the event. I could understand holding off while she was still laying on the track. But, nothing at the very end either? Very weird.
