Not quite. The expression only evokes that he is eerily amused, not that he's personally disturbed.

Absolutely. So they went for who repeated...and Alex was in Quebec.

So much negative propaganda against Russia prior to the Games but based on what is said by most, they truly deserve Gold for the best Winter Olympics presented to date.

Congrats and thanks for the beautiful memories !

Totally agree. Yet, the best Games that I ever saw, the best Winter games..(not Spring games...), is still Lillehammer. Represented everything I wanted to see in a Winter Games. But I loved Sochi too.

Speaking of Lillehammer there's a feature on Kerrigan and Harding tonight. Man, what a time capsule that is.

I agree there was more physical play and intensity in that game than I saw in the third period of what I watched today.

In the medal rounds I totally agree.

But the best game overall was the Russia-US game.

Actually, Canada is bringing back more (gold) medals than any country in terms of the amount of hardware. Two full hockey teams +two curling teams + two women in bobsleigh +silver medals and bronze medals.... That's lots of indidual medals. Many different athletes will have a medal at home. Coaches.too ?

I didn't just think it was the best women's game, I thought it was the best game of ice hockey played at the Sochi Olympics. I have seen 90% of the games, including all played by "top 7" (Canada, Sweden, Finland, USA, Russia, Czech Republic, Slovakia) nations. Doesn't make my opinion the end of it all, but it does make it more educated.

I think only participants get medals ... not coaches or support staff.

I haven't browsed through this thread but I thought this was quite funny. A cat falling through the ceiling in a sochi facility. Apologies if already posted

I knew they were outsourcing most of the labor... but I didn't know that they employed cats. Cool
