Does UK TV show any Olymp[ics? The only Brits I've seen was the curling team and that was because they played Canada in the semis. Odd game curling..the joke over here is that it's a good thing the Olypmic committee doesn't test for beer and doughnuts...I'm sitting weith my cocoa waiting for ther Women's gold medal game to start. It's a bit worrying..US is playing very dirty..one of their players made a crack to Danielles Goyette during their round-robin game about her father who dies last week..sadly you are not allowed to cream people into the boards in women's hockey...the two teams have played 14 games so far including training matches and are 7-7. Could go either way. US very strong, but not as quick, and they are getting unconscious goaltending from Tueting. Canada fairly banged up with injuries..should be a close one...In the men's game, Canada top in the prelims at 3-0, Russia leads Pool B also 3-0. US a surprising 1-2. Samuelsson of Sweden is disqualified for holding two passports and there's a demand from Russia that they also lose all their points and go to the bottom of the standings, God knows why they have the prelims as all eight teams make the quarter-finals!
