Have you been watching the Winter Olympics?
The kids and the grand parents, are getting into the Olympics. I've been too busy, but shut down today and watched day-time TV including women's curling and women's hockey.
Team USA lost both. The Sweeden Hockey squad upset ours in a shoot out. Excellent goalie games on both sides.
Number 7, from Sweeden, in a post game interview was asked how much of a difference her coach made in the game. She said, "at the end of the game we couldn't hear him as he had lost his voice."
The USA's 'Big Kinger,' Katie King, summed it up by saying, "Their goalie played well and she stood on her head."
There has been a lot of talk about 'wipe outs' in the Games, overall. The game wasn't a wipe out. But, I'm better fitted to the summer Olympics where conditions are better monitored.
