could probably just toss the womens hockey team in there, guaranteed a medal

This is definitely gonna be an interesting Olympics to follow - not only for the sporting events but for all the stuff going on around the Olympics.

Starbuds 02-05-2014 03:29 PM

We win, first, we win Canada. First, we win, we win Canada. Third win, 80,000 peoples, red jersey, everybody put red and white jersey. And we win the score, more goals, and it doesn’t matter how, how much, how many shoots other guy shoots at our pucks, our nets, so we win. We’re very excited. It doesn’t matter right now. We, we beat everyone, so.

[Reporter]
Little too close at the end there?

I don’t know. You – You can give me like hundred questions, but we win. Canada win. Canada better Canada, so . . . see you next time.

[Reporters]
(crosstalk inaudible)

Surprise did I? Not surprised. Wa – We been ready 100 percent. We score six goals. We score more goals and win the games, and we win Canada. We beat everyone. We win – wonderful rink, 80,000 guys and ‘Russia, Russia! Let’s go!’ We have, I think we have, I don’t know, 30, 40 guys from Whitehorse, and they put their Canadian jerseys and ‘Come on, Canada!’ and we win, so that’s it. Thanks, guys.

Pretty damning reports from the journalists who have arrived in Sochi.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...l-experiences/

Wonder if it's just them or will Athletes have to put up with these conditions as well. Part of me thinks this Olympics will be a scandalous one.

Pretty sure they'll bring St. Louis now, who honestly might be a better fit for the large ice surface than Stamkos.

Hall may be on the short list of replacement players.

Even though he didn't do too well in the WHC, I think he would have a much better showing considering the WHC aren't very competitive comparably.

I would really like to see him paired with an elite center ala Crosby. Could really get to see how/if it changes his game playing with players above his skill level.

I'll bet they bring Marchand or Seguin, or some utterly confounding thing like that.

Wow. These games are going to be an infinitely worse experience for everyone involved than the Albertville Games were.

Taylor Hall might stand a chance. Let's say that Stamkos' replacement is Hall, Giroux, Staal, St. Louis or Neal. Hall is by far the best skater among them. If TC thinks they need speed, Hall is a good choice.

Hall - Toews - Sharp

That being said I think that the replacement is going to be Giroux, and as a Finn, Giroux doesn't scare me nearly as much as Hall does. :)

I'm sorry but Hall has zero chance. Unless MSL, Giroux, Staal and Neal all break their legs in the next 2 days Hall won't be on the team.


We all know they're just gonna take Dupuis anyways :sarcasm:

SeriousBusiness 02-05-2014 04:18 PM

Looks like this is going to be the worst Olympics in quite a while. But that's completely on the IOC for picking such a stupid place to hold them.

Jepprey 02-05-2014 07:53 PM

Great. My sleep will be ruined for a couple of weeks. lol.

I love Winter Olympics.

Skm 02-05-2014 08:04 PM

The sports themselves will still be as entertaining as ever but here's some light reading on how big of a joke the games as a whole are:

After reading about all the troubles the media have been reporting on in Sochi, the toilets, stray dogs, hotels without lobbies, toilet paper bins etc. I kind of wish the Sun sent Terry Jones and a box of doughnuts.

I thought hall was not one of the 5 emergency backs that got filed with ioc earlier in the month

These are real photos from journalists, touring the athletes village..

For 51 Billion dollars, they can't afford, private toilet stalls....

I saw these a few days ago. Absolutely bush league. Who the hell gives something like that an "OK"? I've heard that it isn't uncommon in that region of Russia for the toilets to be in a communal setting such as this, but you would think that somebody would have noticed and said, "This isn't going to fly with the Europeans and North Americans. Nobody wants to experience other cultures while dropping a deuce."

Fixed to Ruin 02-05-2014 09:25 PM

Will the CBC "personalities" be able to make things interesting. I feel like they are all a bunch of stiffs.

I will miss Onrait :cry:

I hope they can spare a square :laugh:

In all seriousness, that's really a joke. At least have a partition or something. It's uncomfortable enough doing no.1 next to another dude at a urinal. I can't imagine trying to splash a deuce in a place like that.

Don't have to worry about sparing a square, they don't flush them..
