Good news.

I forgot they were playing this morning.

I haven’t watched much of the Olympics this time. It does seem that every time I switch over to the Olympics program, I tune in just in time to see another athlete going SPLAT!

I wonder if a certain song by the band Prodigy will be played post-game.

Not the Miracle On Ice, but a damn exciting game. I'm split between us having a chance to eliminate them in the medal round or simply having Russia eliminated in pool play.

It was very nice to have us beat them in Russia. Czar/Tsar Vladimir is not pleased.
