This is giving me serious flashbacks to an event somewhere in Italy 4 years ago that I have forced myself to forget. Arrrgghh. There too all our favourites failed and it was two unlikely heroes that took home our goals. That said, the two first periods of the hockey game last night and the curling game against the US (narrow win) were much better. But it'd be sweet to get that gold. Not many chances today, but big ones:
- Will the men's alpine super combination go today after being postponed for weather reasons last night? If it does, Aksel Lund Svindal should be a favourite.
- Halfpipe for men. I don't think we'll do well there.
- Cross country sprint for women and men. If you're gonna see one event of xc these Olympics this is the one. Pretty exciting and understandable for everyone. In the women's event we are outsiders, but in the men's we have a strong team and should be able to take this one home. Which most likely means it will go to Sweden.
- We'll also play another curling game
