Glad I remembered my blood pressure pills this morning
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.
But who won the women’s snowboard freestyle?

Almost every time I tuned in they were in a commercial or just ready to go to one.

(We are finished)
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.
