    Only the sixth time in MLB history that a team allowed 0 hits and still lost the game. It's almost fitting this happened to the worst team this season - Cincinnati Reds who lost 0-1 to Pittsburgh Pirates.
     
    After three walks the only run was scored on fielder's choice who couldn't pull off a double play to end the inning.

    Some useless trivia. With Mollie Jepsen and Mark Arendz winning gold medals, I believe every athlete in the Sobeys commercial has won a gold medal at the Olympics/Paralympics this year. Jepsen and Arendz join Nurse, Poulin, Parrot and Weidemann.
  15. Wow!

    The 2022 league year starts on March 16th but the first bomb just dropped: Seattle Seahawks traded QB Russell Wilson to Denver Broncos for QB Drew Lock and multiple 1st round picks. AFC West just got helluva more difficult.
     
    Aaron Rodgers signed a new 4-year deal with Green Bay Packers to quash rumours about him leaving Wisconsin (it was never reasonable to think he leaves a weak NFC North to go to Denver or Pittsburgh Steelers).

    Good first day for Canada with 3 medals: Gold for Mollie Jepsen in the women's standing downhill, silver for Mac Marcoux in the men's visually impaired downhill and bronze for Mark Arendz in the men's biathlon sprint standing. Unfortunately the para-hockey team isn't faring well against the US.

    2021-2024 Canadian Athlete Summer Olympic Database
     
    Welcome to the Canadian Athlete Olympic Database. Here we will track the performance of Canadian athletes starting from August 2021 (after the 2020 Summer Olympics) until the beginning of the 2024 Summer Olympics. This database will primarily focus on tracking athlete and team performances in Summer Olympic events. Some exceptions will be for non-Olympic events where athletes may seamless transition to an Olympic event just before the Olympics such as different weight classes in combat sports or lead/bouldering events in sport climbing.
     
    Each athlete/team who competed at a top level competition such as world championships, world cup/series events, Pan American championships, multi-sport games or other high level competitions will be listed.

    Topicmaster1010 got a reaction from Ted in Summary of your NOC peformance in Beijing 2022 olympics   
    Canada
     
    How did your NOC perform in Beijing?
     
    Overall, a bit disappointing. 26 total medals is a good result. 4 gold medals was very disappointing. We already had very few gold medal chances heading into these games and many of them couldn't deliver.
     
    Was it better than expected or was it worse?
     
    As said above, the total medals were around as expected, maybe a bit above expectations. The 4 golds were well below expectations (yes, I know, us Canadians are spoiled). We had 11 gold medals in Pyeongchang. I was expecting around 6-7 but even that was too optimistic this time.
     
    What were the ups and downs, what were the highlights, what were the biggest disappointments?
     
    Pros:
    Women's hockey team Isabelle Weidemann (Speed Skating): 1 gold, 1 silver 1 bronze Steven Dubois (Short Track): also 1 gold, 1 silver 1 bronze Max Parrot (Snowboarding): 1 gold and 1 bronze after being diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 2018 Charles Hamelin (Short Track) with a gold medal in his last olympic race Jack Crawford (Alpine Skiing) with a bronze medal and 4th and 6th place finishes in other events Snowboard cross team winning 3 medals for the Canadian team Ivanie Blondin and Laurent Dubreuil (Speed Skating) rebounding after disappointing first few races Good overall performances by the biathlon and cross-country skiing teams, especially from the men  
    Cons:
    Curling; What a disaster Men's hockey team; even without NHL players, I still expected more from them; first time since 2006 to not make the semifinals Ted-Jan Bloemen (not even close to his best at these games) Women's short track team Freestyle skiing in team (with a few exceptions); first time not winning a gold medal since 2002 Figure skating team (also with a few exceptions); first time not winning a medal since 1980.  
    I probably forgot some things so other Canadians feel free to say something.
     
    What were the most emotional events for you? Who made a suprisingly good result?
    Never in my life did I expect to see a Canadian medal in ski jumping. Got emotional listening to the play-by-play call and seeing the ski jumpers reactions.  Justine Dufour-Lapointe and Kim Boutin also had emotional interviews after not having the best results. I'm probably forgetting some others. Also got emotional seeing the women's hockey team celebrating their gold medal.

    Topicmaster1010 reacted to orangeman in Winter Olympic Games Beijing 2022 Ceremonies   
    I was able to attend the Closing Ceremonies.  The goodie bag given to us was noticeable less exciting (no branded hats, mitts, etc.).  This was only a concern because there was nothing for sale at either Ceremony or the hockey game I went to.  All stores in town are virtually sold out for months now, too.  You have to wonder what would have happened if millions of people were here like what was supposed to happen.  I don't want to be negative, because this was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me, but it's like the organizers went out of their way to suck any spirit out of these Olympics, although the volunteers were incredibly nice and helpful.  I'll tell more stories later.  For now, here are some pictures!

    1) Well, quite a mixed feelings from our performances, in one side the best winter Olympics in the history since the independence in other very poor results of the majority of our athletes in Beijing.
     
    2) Better than expected for sure.
     
    3)
     
    Highlight
    Ice Hockey Madness and the Slaf show
     
    Ups
    a) Petra Vlhová amazing mental strength and fighting in that Slalom 2nd run.
    b) Paja Fialková 10th in Pursuit and another top 15 in Sprint,
    c) her sister Ivona with very good skiing.
    d) Viki čerňanská very solid effort in Monobob from the youngest athlete in the field
    e) Special mention: Klaudia Medlová despite injury before the Slopestyle showed incredible fighting spirit and respect to the Olympics by her desire to start at the Games at least in Big Air where she risked maybe the end of her career but still was exremely close to qualify for the final
     
    Downs:
    a) Mens Biathlon - all 4 slow, miserable shooting, piss poor performances, overall complete embarassement not worthy of the Olympics (the top of the cake was not qualifying anyone to the pursuit in a reduced Olympic field is just utter embarassement)
    b) womens cross-country skiing, useless to say anything here, was complete misery
    c) but the biggest disappointement of the games was the luge doubles Vaverčák/Zmij fucking up the Luge relay to the whole team some 10 meters from the finish line and throwing away a possible top 10 maybe top 8 and consequently money help for their teammates.
     
     
    4) and now for the most emotional, most positive and most of the most thing of the games for me, my neighbors, my countrymen, my nation ...
     
    I guess it is useless to write her what that ice hockey medal (first ever team sport medal btw...) means for us. Since Saturday the life in the country is completely upside down
     
    In the TV news we have a clockdown going on --- counting the time remaining for the return of our hockey team to Slovakia, now it is 17 hours and 50 minutes to landing. so just to say ...
     
    More to come tomorrow evening, stay tuned
     
    for now, just Mondays newspaper first pages..
