Re: 2018 Winter Olympic Games Thread

Canada loses 3-2 on a shootout. Poor line change resulted in the Americans tying the game in the 3rd period. Jocelyne Larocque immediately removed her silver medal. https://s2.yimg.com/lo/api/res/1.2/e1jMZcSUC._HWahOuolJ2Q--/YXBwaWQ9eW15O3c9NjQwO3E9NzU7c209MQ--/http://media.zenfs.com/en/homerun/fee...

Re: 2018 Winter Olympic Games Thread

Canada falls 4-3 to the underdog Germans. Totally dominated the 3rd period outshooting them 14-1 but couldn't get the equalizer. Canada now plays for the Bronze. :shock: Team Germany is a team to reckon with. They've got my respect and I will hope they can capture the gold now they've earned it. Th...

Re: 2017 BC Provincial Election Thread

I am sure you will be very interested in the BC budget release tomorrow, the first by the NDP in several years. ICBC rates will likely increase. In the end, the budget didn't immediately mention ICBC rates but as expected, other increases occurred: Effective Feb. 21, there will be a hike on the pro...

Rachel Homan finally broke into the win column by demolishing the Americans 11-3. Hope she has finally turn her game around. Canadian women's curling team has been eliminated. In wo...

Re: Olympic hockey question

Doesn't sound fair. Well, many other sports organizations give a playoff bye as reward for having a higher ranking or seed. Events such as FIFA World Cup qualifications allow byes for higher ranking countries. And several North American sports leagues like CFL, NFL, MLS, and even MLB give playoff b...

Re: 2018 Winter Olympic Games Thread

Men's hockey, Canada and Czech Republic tie 2-2 in regulation and OT, with Czech winning in the shootout. Reminds me of 20 years ago in the semifinal when both teams were tied 1-1, and the Czech Republic prevailing in the shootout. But a reminder to Canada, since 1994 NONE of the teams with purrfect...

Canada's Ted-Jan Bloemen has won a gold medal in men's 10,000-metre speed skating. Canada's Kaitlyn Lawes and John Morris won the first-ever Winter Games gold medal in mixed doubles curling on Tuesday. I believe for the longest time, the only Olympic events in which men and women are teammates and p...
