Canada vs America is going to be interesting. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

Turns out China can't put up a fight against America in womens hockey. Last I checked it was 7-0, and now the live online updates are saying 9-0 in the 3rd period.

Ended 12-1. Thank god China scored a goal, otherwise it would have been just as disgraceful as Canada vs Slovakia...although 12-1 is close.

It is embarrassing in the extreme when a team runs up the score.

China is a significantly better team than Slovakia, though.

I don't see why it should be any different that any other sport. The skating and skiing events are constantly breaking records. In the summer games the swimmers and runners are constantly breaking records. I see no reason that the hockey players shouldn't go for the records also.

I watched a bit of the mens moguls earlier. It's a lot more exciting than the womens. They go way faster and go for the really spectacular jumps instead of the 360s and backflips 90% of the women do. A lot of them lose points because of it but it makes for good viewing.

Skiers and skaters break records because the human machine keeps getting better and better. They aren't finishing in record time and their opponents finishing so far behind as to not bother finishing at all. In skating, if you fall you get marked as having fallen, not as finishing with a grotesquely slow time.

Whereas setting such a record in a sport like hockey is taking advantage of a weak opponent for your own self-aggrandizement, for no reason other than to make yourself look good, and therefore dishonorable.

It would compare to other sports if the score was like 18-16.

I'm not a believer of holding back in sport. If someone can't keep up that's their problem.

Anyway, the Finland-Russia isn't being shown here. Guess the Canadian broadcasters aren't interested in a game that doesn't include Canada or America. Finland's winning 3-1 at the end of the 2nd. They're dominating as far as shots on goal go too even with 6 more penalty minutes.

I'm fairly surprised that Canada didn't get any golds in 1976 in Montreal or 1988 in Calgary, especially in the winter games in '88...but I looked it up and yeah. That's weird. Then I remembered that the Canadian national hockey team had a forty year slump.

(and now I surmise that because, from the early 50s until the 1992 games, the Olympics didn't allow professional athletes to play hockey...and even the junior leagues in Canada are considered professional leagues so most players were ineligible before they were of an age to play in the games)

And Canada gets their first home gold with a win in Men's Moguls! I'm happy for them but he pushed the USA into Bronze so I have mixed feelings.
