Must be the Winter Olympics

It was rather surreal. Ladies hockey, the arena music starts in and it's La Bamba. So I'm watching Sweden vs. Russia, playing in Italy, and a Mexican folk song sung by an American teenager gets the crowd fired up.

Later they played the Banana Boat song made famous by Belefonte (Deyyyy-oh!).

Even later, I watched the USA ladies dominate the Swiss.

1 I was over on NBC's site and was suprised to see that,according to their online poll,that Kurling was second only to hocky in popularity.A full five percent more than even figure skating.Go figure!
Our own Biatholon team finished a best of 8th.Todd Lodwick did that while being very sick.Everyone wanted him to sit out but he wouldn't hear it.What sucks most about it is watching a Frenchman come in 6th.No Frenchie should ever finish ahead of an American in a shooting sport.In fact I'm all in favor of banning countries that opress firearms ownership from participating in shooting events.When your(like the Brits)shooting teams have to go to other countries to practice because doing so is a felony in their own land then some is very wrong indeed.

2 Earlier in the day, the gf and I saw the Maryland women's hockey team beat the AU women's hockey team, then women's USA vs Switzerland, then the Caps embarass themselves against Pitt. It was a hockey-filled day for us.
