Re: Winter Olympics 2014

I loved the reaction of the guy that won bronze in the same race that Viletta won gold. The guy was SO excited! I really like these unexpected winners and their reactions.

Swiss defence looked pretty solid for the most part. Offensively lacking I think though, only a single goal in 2 games (and even that came of the Latvian).
Probably not a bad result against one of the fancied nations.

Hardly an unexpected winner, he got a silver in the downhill a few days ago.
Christof Innerhofer is a class act.

Re: Winter Olympics 2014

Cologna waited around for a half hour after finishing to congratulate the last place guy, a Peruvian who competed despite having a broken rib.

I'm convinced the Deadspin comments are written by professionals, that one is no exception.

Re: Winter Olympics 2014

And 2nd Gold for Dario Cologna - I am very proud to say I saw him in his underpants on the balcony of his bedroom at the hotel above us- when they'd been training there. These cross country skiers do have very impressive tight bums

You'd have a tight bum going down the hill like a bat out of hell on a flimsy tea tray....
