2010 Winter Olympics [Wednesday Morning Quarterback]
Feb 17th, 2010 by Dan

USA! USA! USA!

The 2010 Winter Olympics are upon us, which means almost nothing to a great portion of the US population, but gets me all riled up about Team USA and Olympic gold. I’m not super big on the vast majority of the sports that are part of either Olympic games, but I am pumped for ice hockey and seeing the US win, so I’m excited anyway.

We kicked off our 2010 Olympic ice hockey campaign this afternoon with a 3-1 victory over Switzerland in what seems like a fairly easy win. Our next opponent is Norway on the 18th followed by Canada on the 21st. I have no idea how good Norway is, but I know we’ve got to look out for Canada. A loss here doesn’t mean too much (unless we lose twice), but Canada will definitely be there to dog us once pool play ends.

In other Olympic news, Canada finally went and earned themselves a gold medal in a self-hosted Olympic games, which is kind of a bummer. I’m a fan of any losing streak and I was seriously pulling for the streak to continue.

Sorry I don’t have all that much to say about the Olympics, but I haven’t seen all that much. I know that we got rocked by Team China in pairs figure skating (and that annoyed me to no end), but I haven’t been keeping tabs too well since then. As of right now we’re not even first in medal count (Germany is ahead with France trailing by one), but I know we’ll turn things around and get ourselves back on top.
