    That was a heart breaker for the US women. They came so close to the gold. Super exciting for the Canadians though, and a nail biter of a game for everyone. So very sad for our US girls, but congrats to Canada for a brilliant comeback. They will talk about this one for years in Canada as one to remember for them.

    Won't happen... Sweden won over Finland in semi final today... Swedish commentators remarked about empty seats. Even some in the audience shouting Russia! Finland will play for bronze against US or Canada. US Canada semifinal just started.

    Know what you mean about 'people just go waaaay too crazy'. Fortunately Sweden is a bit crazy about cross country skiing as well, but if Sweden wins hockey gold(like in Lillehammer and Torino) things will be insane over here Wonder if hockey is the most popular disciplin at olympics? The last competition on the last day. Always full seats, in Sotji as well???

    On the positive side for US, we are still in the running to do something no other country has done in the history of the winter Olympics: win at least one medal every single day of the competition.

    True! At least that will make me feel better!

    And I really don't hate the Canadians (okay except for Crosby). I just hate it when they beat the Americans.

    The US men need to win the match against Finland today and the four men bobsled need to medal tomorrow for the US to medal every day of competition. It would be a cool record to set.

    Your dream just ended with that hockey match. I have no idea what happened but it looked like the US men's hockey team literally gave up after the semi-final game yesterday. That's the only explanation there really is for a 5-0 loss.

    Fortunately, they may very well still medal in bobsleigh.
