Olympics Omnibus thread

Recommended Posts

Besides hockey, curling is my Winter Olympics must follow sport. I've watched as many matches as I could for three Olympics now and I gotta admit when I saw Shuster back again my initial reaction was, "This bum again? Can't we find anyone better?" I've never been happier to eat my words. It's one thing to pull off a miracle run but sticking it to all us naysayers has to make it all the more sweet.

The league specifically told the players they would allow them to compete in the Olympics if they made labor concession. They used it as a bargaining chip.

A lot of people sure like to forget completely available knowledge like this.

Man, Germany got so close. That 2-1 goal is probably it though.

 

EDIT: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA RUCK FUSSIA

Why did they take a shot on that PP? Just possess the puck and the game is over.

too many ex-Sharks on Team Germany for it to be that easy to close out a win. :(

The Russian team and fans attempting to sing the Russian National Anthem over the Olympic one would make Nikolai Volkoff proud.

Both Gold Medal hockey games were classics.

Pavel Datsyuk gets to put a capstone on the career of a generational player.

Debating on splitting this off into its own thread, but... East Lansing should probably be nuked from orbit.
