Get excited...

The fun begins! Time to start educating ourselves on Team USA.

Coverage of the figure skating teams
, including--finally--a sort-of explanation of why the U.S. only has two entrants in the women's competition, as opposed to three in most of the others

NHL hockey players: Olympians, or no? As my fondness for hockey grows (Go Caps!), I'm getting more and more excited for the Olympic hockey tournament. "Miracle," which I have never seen, is next up on my NetFlix queue. [Side note: I attended the Caps-Maple Leafs ass-kicking game two weeks ago and, by the third period, I was seriously mad that I might not see any fights. And then, when one finally broke out, I cheered. What does this say about me as a person?]

And finally, for your daily dose of flamboyance, here's the ever-glittery Johnny Weir doing "Poker Face" at the US Figure Skating Championships.

T-minus 16!

Next up:
Olympics terminology -- What, exactly, are twizzles? The answer--and why you should care--coming soon.

  1. I still don't get why there are only two women. If the top three were less than one point apart, why can't all three compete?
