    I’m confused. I guess he couldn’t curl it in to knock the one yellow out to give us 2.

    Never would’ve been able to carry enough weight to curl it in and knock out the Brits stone far enough to get 2.

    We just lost to the Swedes. Watched the game and the one against GB… every end we were playing catch up. Hard to win like that.

    Shitting on Shuster is an olympic tradition of mine. But this wasn't on him. Plys shit all over himself again and again and put Shuster in no win situations all match.

    For someone who knows very little about snowboarding what gives a skier or snowboarder more amplitude then the other?

    The psychosis of the angle you take. Straight is speed, angled slows you down.

    Watch where they land on the wall. The higher up the more speed they'll be able to carry. The lower the slower...also harder to land a trick on the flatter part of the halfpipe.

    Apparently Trusova had to be dragged out of the rink

    my favorite part of that thread is the Chinese call the Russian female coach “Eteri” which is basically the word for ramen because her hair looks like ramen

    I know curling isn't easy, but I get irrationally upset when every shot isn't perfect. I've cursed Shuster's name so many times this Olympics.

    Why does every team we play get to start with the hammer? It seems like a significant advantage.

    You get the hammer if the other team scored a point in the previous end. Ties goes to the current team with the hammer.

    I don’t think it matters as much early, but I’d think you would always assume the rule of 1 per end to the hammer and want to keep the hammer on an even schedule for your team at any given end.
