Live on NHL Gamecentre, apparently.

Anyway, watching curling with a brew is a perfect start to the morning. Especially when the GB players, well, Anna Sloan, forgets she is miked up and broadcasts a beautifully clear, Scottish accented "Fuckin' hell" to a bleary-eyed nation...

I do love the Curling, I just really enjoy the tactics of it all.

Wife and I have got completely caught up in it. On Saturday, we were watching the GB men and there was a shot where the opposition had one at the left and the right hand side of the house. We were saying "take the left one, we've got the hammer, guaranteed one point. Right hand side is too tricky, play safe, take a point." and he sent the stone down the right. We were tutting to each other, the stone pinged off the right stone, sent it over to the left and knocked them both out.

There was a pause and she said "And that is why he's an Olympian and we're sat on this sofa eating crisps."

We have British representation in the Women's Ice Hockey final between US and Canada.

Britain's Joy Tottman (Johnson) will be the official for the final, a huge honour for her, seeing as they had to earn their spot of doing the final.

The Russian's just haven't got it going all tournament, Malkin and Ovechkin have been especially poor, with the team relying too much on Datsyuk and Radulov. Kovalchuk popped up now and again, but as a team they were awful.

Finland were deserved winners of that game.

Cracking men's curling semi (now there's an image). Final end, trailing 1, with hammer. Can we get two and guarantee at least a silver? I'm not massively confident...

And after a terrible stone looks like they've just blown it.

YESSSSS. The Swede choked on his last stone and we draw 2 to win. Silver at least baby.

I would not have expected the British male curlers to outperform the women but they've done the business. Medal confirmed.

And we've still got one more match of Eve Muirhead continually shouting 'haaaaard' for the bronze. I'm in love with her.

Heartbreaking loss in the womens hockey final for the USA. 2-0 up with 3 and a half minutes left, the Canadians get a lucky deflection to score, then USA hit the post of the empty net before Canada tie it up and go on to win in overtime. Just about the worst way they could have lost it.

Nasty Chinese take-out. Insane judging. Fuck short-track. The sport is a farce. Notice they changed the finish line to make it more visible. If ever there was an admission of guilt!

Poor, poor Elise. Pick a new sport love, cos you're better than pissing your career away on something as inherently random/incompetently run as this.
