not seen the skeleton event yet, only half of the speed skating and neither super giant slaloms PHENOMENAL snowboarding cross final again though, and a very good reason why it's probably my favourite winter sport!
oh and we might have gotten another star in ESMEE VISSER from the netherlands in speed skating she BLEW away the competition in the womens 5000 meters, by simply deploying different race tactics and having fantastic power for a shy small framed 22 year old

Appreciating the wide range of coverage I’m getting via apps and over television. Haven’t watched the NBC taped prime time stuff even once. Well, maybe just passing through. But I’ve gotten what I’ve always wanted, which is a more authentic and live telling of the stories as they unfold.
I have missed Bob Costas—not seen him one time. So that’s a negative tradeoff.
General comments: No reason for US not to up their medal count at these games. Gotta do a better job at youth outreach and funding. And quit trying to market everything like NFL and NBA are God’s gift to sports and anything else better bow to these entities. Sound byte radio/TV/Sportscenter sensationalism is killing sport for sport’s sake. None of these publicized cash-grab broadcasting companies give two craps about sports; that is, the actual sports side of sports.

geez elise cannot catch a break can she?
the start she catches the next skater and doesn't reach the first corner ..... that i admit ..... she's hobbling and doesn't look good for the restart of the heat!
then she's qualified for the quarters on thursday, but gets a yellow card (which means she's gone) because of deliberate arm pushing
also the south korean womens relay in the speed skating were bloody lucky to keep their gold medal win, but huge well done to the dutch, not only getting a bronze because of the two penalties in the final, but a WORLD RECORD to boot!
and stupid eurosprt commentator thinking they had to do two runs in the 500 speed skating lol you big idiot
