Women's hockey is hard to watch. They have talent, but it's just not the same sport without hitting.

The US Women's curling team is so bad right now, all I can do is laugh. I'm not even all that smart when it comes to curling, and even I find myself calling them out for terrible shots before they even reach the other end.

Can't wait for tomorrow and Saturday. I'll hopefully be working from home tomorrow because of snow, so I'll be able to watch the game. And Saturday I'm going out and boozing it up for the Russia game.

Maybe so, but I still hope US upsets Canada in the women's division. It wouldn't exactly be the Miracle On Ice, but still an upset.

Will they be showing it live at 7:30? If I get a snow day, definitely going to be some early morning drinking.

They should be. Either on NBCSN, CNBC, or MSNBC. I'll unfortunately have to do some work from home so no early morning drinking for me tomorrow. But on Saturday I expect to be thoroughly pickled by 11 am.

I think you're picturing me crying a lot louder than I was. I don't typically go out of my way to watch women's hockey unless it is the far and away two best teams in the world playing in the Olympics and I know some of the players.

That being said, it's not awful, just different. As a former men's hockey player, I keep anticipating hits and physical play in the corners, but that isn't allowed in the women's game. The USA/Canada game was still pretty physical for a women's game, though.

Only was able to catch the 3rd period live, but hopefully I can see the replay tonight. From what I saw, Canada definitely outplayed the US, but it sounds like the 2nd period was the other way around. Too many defensive breakdowns and oddman (oddwoman?) rushes were given up even though Vetter bailed them out until the last breakaway goal. Sounds like Canada caught a few breaks with 6 women on the ice multiple times on sloppy changes that weren't called until the end of the game. I'm sure the officials will be reminded to look for that in future games.

Obviously these are the teams that people are interested in and hopefully the US can take care of business and we get a rematch in the medal round.

Edit: MidwestJimmy...I think I heard them say that the US had won the previous 3 matchups between the teams, so it wouldn't have really been an upset. They are pretty even in terms of talent.

no offense intended at all. but i think 10% of the thread has been discussion about how bad a women's event is, 89% has been about who's cutest, and 1% has been about any of the actual events that have or are occurring. i was just venting.

I gotcha. 10-89-1 is a pretty rough split. This isn't the 1950's, afterall.

I'd say we should be shooting for at least 5-93-2.

It's about as sexist as when female baseball players in the 1940s had to wear skirts.

"Pretty darn nifty if you ask me." -- a sexist dork in "A League Of Their Own" when the skirt uniforms were debuted.

Yeah, they are even in talent. I don't watch many of the games, but they get a lot of coverage up here and I can't remember a lopsided affair between them ever.

US won the recent matchups against Canada but Canada hasn't lost in the Olympics in a while, so there are a couple opposing narratives going on. I'm not sure how often Canada loses to other teams, but I remember the US didn't make the final in 2006 and dropped a match to Finland a few months ago (Noora Raty is amazing, though)

I've been rooting for the Japanese team to do some things, their games have been close so far but they're already eliminated from advancement. Watching the games is interesting - the players are smaller and there's a lot of movement going on all the time. The passes and board usage aren't quite right. You can see the coaching in their game but there's sort of a sense of scrambling between all the movement and undisciplined puck play. I watch whenever I can.

I could be wrong but I can't remember the Canadian women losing to any one besides the USA.

So my wife changed the channel after the 1st period ended when it was 1-0. I just turned it back after she left for work and it's 7-1 at the end of the 2nd.

That escalated quickly.

Slovakia isn't exactly a push-over, either. This is surprising.
