Winter Olympics.

Postby TedWard » Sat Feb 15, 2014 2:55 pm

The cricket finished early so I am able to watch the end of the USA v USSR Russia in the Ice Hockey.

Bit of a thriller 2 late goals, 1 disallowed, and now extra time.

Somewhat interestingly each team plays with one less player in extra time.....

[ice hockey]

2-2 after extra time and four penalty shots each - just call it a draw already, no shame in that.

Its a group game - not a final.

The Americans using one guy to take all their penalties.

I prefer the soccer way where every player needs to take a shot.

Not much in the winter Olympics that is worth watching. The time difference hurts for me too.

Might turn in to watch some curling when it shows up.

Ted talking about hockey? wow! a pleasant surprise that people on CF care about our great game. T.J Oshie is a shootout beast but International rules suck, after the first three rounds one guy can take as many penalty shots as possible.

and yes Ted, in overtime it is 4 on 4 hockey. It's Canada's gold to lose but USA has a darn good team. Russians will choke, that I am sure about.

Watching the Womens bordercross final today - Samkova looks so much faster than all the others, possibly in part because of her MJ style mustache.

If Gold is sex and silver is making out, bronze is like jerking off in a dark room. Finns can have it. We are gonna get that Gold tomorrow morning. It is our game, Swedes will be crushed 3-0.

an average shift is about 40 seconds after that you change lines at an opportune time. They play 4 lines, 3 forwards and 2 defencemen. Defencemen play longer shifts as the dont skate that much. so if your line is tired, you dump the puck and change lines.
