As it should be. Two juggernauts duking it out at the top. Russia may have more silvers, but you just know they’re still hurting from Saturday’s loss. Media members in Russia have said that winning a gold in hockey and losing the rest of their events would still make this Olympics a success. We hit em right where it hurts and for that reason, we have the upper hand.
Biggest USA headline of the day was Meryl Davis and Charlie White winning pairs ice dancing gold. Well done.
Fellow American Jason Brown just can’t. Literally dying.
USA women’s hockey dominated Sweden 6-1, setting up the inevitable gold medal final against Canada on Thursday.
This play is so women’s hockey it hurts.
Score doesn’t really indicate just how close the game was.
Bob Costas made his triumphant return to the air. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss him. I live to hate that man. Good to see you back on your high horse, Bobby.

Sochi mascots. So hot right now.
Hey Russia guy, do less.
Today I’m watching Freestyle skiing, men’s halfpipe. American David Wise has dominated this competition the past 3 years at the X games, and is the heavy favorite to bring us another gold medal. Fellow American Torin Yater-Wallace is also expected to contend for a medal, presenting the USA a great opportunity to build a medal lead.
