  1. United States National Thread

    Team USA 2018 - Winter Olympics Schedule All times in PST Day 12 (February 21st) Alpine Skiing Women's Downhill: 6:00pm Team USA Breezy Johnson Alice McKennis Laurenne Ross Lindsey Vonn Thoughts/Background Information After a pretty disappointing Super G, will Vonn recover in her best event? Bobsleigh Women's Heats 3 & 4 - 3:40am Team USA Elena Meyers Taylor Lauren Gibbs Jamie Grubel-Poser Aja Evans Thoughts/Background Information Elena Meyers Taylor has won 2 medals in the 2 women event, Silver and Bronze. She sits in 2nd with her brakewoman Lauren Gibbs, who is making her Olympic debut. The other US sled has the Bronze medalists from Sochi, who are sitting in 4th. Great chance for a medal, even 2. Cross-Country Skiing Men and Women's Team Sprint - 12:00mid Team USA Erik Bjornsen Simi Hamilton Jessie Diggins Kikkan Randall Thoughts/Background Information I don't think our Men's team will do that well, but our Women's team won the 2013 Worlds and Diggins and Randall both medalled in the sprint in the 2017 Worlds. Curling Men's United States of America vs Great Britian - 9:05pm Team USA John Shuster Tyler George Matt Hamilton John Landsteiner Team Great Britian Kyle Smith Thomas Muirhead Kyle Waddell Cameron Smith Women's United States of America vs Sweden - 3:05am Team USA John Shuster Tyler George Matt Hamilton John Landsteiner Team Sweden Anna Hasselborg Sara McManus Agnes Knochenhauer Sofia Mabergs Thoughts/Background Information Both of these matches follow similar paths. Last draw for their respective genders, facing a top team, with a spot in the tiebreakers on the line. MUST win for both. Women also need a Japan loss to Switzerland. Figure Skating Ladies Short - 5:00pm Team USA Karen Chen Mirai Nagasu Bradie Tennell Thoughts/Background Information I think these 3 are spectacular skaters. I don't think they will medal. Medvedeva, Osmond, Zagitova, Kostner, Miyahara, Sakamoto, etc, are all sooooo good. Ice Hockey Men's United States of America vs Czech Republic - 7:10pm [I don't want to type all of their names] Thoughts/Background Information Nothing else matters, Quarterfinals are now. Big win against Slovakia should give them a good amount of confidence to hopefully get a good push into the semis. Snowboard Men's Big Air - 5:00pm Team USA Chris Corning Red Gerard Kyle Mack Ryan Stassel Thoughts/Background Information Ryan Stassel has my favorite snowboarder nickname: "Razzle Dazzle." That said, I don't think we're going to get too much of that. These 4 are slopestyle guys, so I don't know what level of tricks they will pull out. Speed Skating Ladies' Team Pursuit - 4:13am Team USA Carlijn Schoutens Heather Bergsma Brittany Bowe Mia Manganello Thoughts/Background Information So...the Dutch are a thing. And they are damn good. I think we lose the semi, but we might pull an upset in the Bronze final. Men's Team Pursuit - 3:00am Team USA Brian Hansen Emery Lehman Joey Mantia Thoughts/Background Information This is Final D. We're just going for pride here.

    Jaco made it to a final!
  8. Alpine Skiing at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    USA broadcast said that Mikaela was vomiting just a few minutes before her run, although she said that it felt more like a virus then nerves.
  9. United States National Thread

    Team USA 2018 - Winter Olympics Schedule All times in PST Day 7 (February 16th) Alpine Skiing Women's Slalom: 5:00pm/8:15pm Team USA Alice Merryweather Megan McJames Mikaela Shiffrin Resi Stiegler Thoughts/Background Information 1 race down for Shiffin, and it was gold. Can she repeat that in her best event? Men's Super-G: 6:00pm Team USA Ryan Cochran-Siegle Jared Goldberg Ted Ligety Andrew Weibrecht Thoughts/Background Information Jansrud and Svindal are the favorites in this, although Weibrecht was a suprise silver medalist in 2014. Maybe another suprise is in the works? Cross-Country Skiing Men 15km Freestyle - 10:00pm Team USA Erik Bjornsen Noah Hoffman Tyler Kornfield Scott Patterson Thoughts/Background Information I would be shocked if we got a top 20 in this one. Curling Men's United States of America vs Sweden - 4:05pm Team USA John Shuster Tyler George Matt Hamilton John Landsteiner Team Sweden Niklas Edin Oskar Eriksson Rasmus Wranaa Christoffer Sundgren Thoughts/Background Information Here we go again with Shuster. He's got flashes of brilliance followed by sessions of incompetence. I don't know what to think of this one. Men's United States of America vs Denmark - 4:05pm Team USA John Shuster Tyler George Matt Hamilton John Landsteiner Team Denmark Rasmus Stjerne Johnny Frederiksen Mikkel Pulsen Oliver Dupont Thoughts/Background Information TBD Figure Skating Men's Short - 5:00pm Team USA Nathan Chen Adam Rippon Vincent Zhou Thoughts/Background Information Well, it's time for Nathan Chen to prove how good he actually is. An easy medal favorite, he needs to recover from a bad team event to hopefully pull out another medal for the US. Freestyle Skiing Women's Aerials Finals - 3:00am Team USA Kiley McKinnon Madison Olsen Recap These two qualified 5th and 6th in the second round of qualification. They have 3 final rounds, 12->9->6. Ice Hockey Men's United States of America vs Slovakia - 7:10pm [I don't want to type all of their names] Thoughts/Background Information Well, the last game was heartbreaking. An overtime loss to Slovenia makes this matchup essentially a must win. They need 2 more victories for a high seed, otherwise we could be facing a very strong team in the quarterfinals. Skeleton Men's Runs 3 & 4 - 6:30pm Team USA Matthew Antoine John Daly Thoughts/Background Information Currently in 11th and 13th, they are outside shots for a medal. Women's Runs 1 & 2 - 3:20am Team USA Katie Uhlaender Kendall Wesenberg Thoughts/Background Information I don't know if we will get a medal here, but Katie can pull out some good runs. Ski Jumping Men's Large Hill Qualification - 4:30am Team USA Kevin Bickner Michael Glasder Casey Larson Will Rhoads Recap Well, we aren't going to medal in this either. This is an experience event, hopefully we can get some to improve the team. Snowboard Women's Snowboard Cross - 5:00pm Team USA Faye Gulini Lindsey Jacobellis Meghan Tierney Thoughts/Background Information JACO! The 5x(5-time!, 5-time!), reigning world champion has had some struggles with the olympics, going out in the semis in Vancouver and Sochi after getting a silver in Turin. Gulini was 4th in Sochi, and is an overall good snowboarder. Tierney is only 19, and is coming off a broken back. Speed Skating Women's 5000m - 3:00am Team USA Carlijn Schoutens Thoughts/Background Information Not the most likely victory for us, Schoutens is going to be going up against legends like Martina Sabikova. Claudia Pechstein and Ivanie Blondin are also medal threats, but not likely for Schoutens.

  11. Snowboarding at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    What a race! Love watching SnoCross. Always so much fun! Well deserved victories for all 3.
  12. Snowboarding at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    No problem. Just a thing in America that predictions about sporting events are bad luck, because then you "jinx" the athletes. Sorry, didn't realize that didn't come through.
  13. Snowboarding at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    Shhh....there is nothing certain in this sport.
  14. Snowboarding at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    By seed from seeding runs: Vaultier (1) Hernandez (3) Baumgartner (15) Pullin (20) Hughes (25) Dierdorff (27) Two of these riders were in Seeding Run 2.
  15. Snowboarding at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    They are reviewing this for a long time.... EDIT: And...we're good. No penalties.
