Night 3 Coverage

Shen and Xaio, among others, try to end Russia's dominance in pairs skating starting tonight.

Welcome to Night 3 from Vancouver. The Marquee event tonight is the pairs skating, as Chinese and German teams aim to end an era of Russian dominance.

Elsewhere, we have both long and short track speedskating, luge, and the men’s aerials competition. Could Canada end it’s gold medal drought tonight? Highly unlikely, but as the men’s biathlon and nordic combined competitions earlier today showed, anything is possible.

6:50 – Well apparently Blackhawks star Patrick Kane is hurt and could miss the Olympics. Assuming someone can take his place this probably clears the way for TJ Oshie of the Blues to make the team.

6:52 – By the way: apparently it was a nice choice with the picture as Shen and Xao posted a record score for the pairs short program.

6:54 – I just sent Jocelyne Lamoureux a message on Facebook, and her profile picture is her and Shaun White. Jealous.

6:56 – We have just one luge run left. David Moeller is in first position with just Felix Loch left. For the record, I have Loch finishing second and Armin Zoeggler, currently in 3rd, winning the bronze. My gold medal pick will not medal.

6:58 – And it’s Gold for Loch! Germany goes 1-2, and Italy’s Zoeggler takes the bronze.

7:08 – Actually a pretty good program from the US champions. A little mistake on a jump, but hopefully they can sneak into the top 8.

7:10 – Nevermind, Kane is fine. In truth, it’s not like we’re going to score a ton of goals anyways so him there or not there isn’t a huge deal.

7:17 – It’s men’s moguls time. Patrick Deenen starts in qualifying. Running first probably isn’t good.

7:19 – Good run for Deenen, and extremely fast.

7:33 – Begg-Smith, the defending Gold medalist, had a good run, although had a bad second jump. He is ranked 4th at the moment.

7:40 – Hannah Kearney getting interviewed. Hell of a job by her last night.

7:42 – Kearney’s younger brother Derrick is a Freshman hockey player for Yale. He has 5 goals and 18 assists in 25 games for the first place Bulldogs.

7:56 – The 2nd US pairs skating duo with a pretty good job on their program. They should qualify for the final round.

7:57 – North Dakota shoutout from Tom Hammond. And you wonder why I like the Winter Olympics.

7:59 – And they’re into second place! What a surprise. It’s a personal best for them.

8:02 – My laptop battery is going to die. I’ll check in after the figure skating stuff is over.

8:22 – Quite the moguls spill eh?

8:30 – Dale Begg-Smith stands between Canada and Olympic gold.

8:35 – With a great run, Brian Wilson goes into silver position. Just 2 skiiers left.

8:39 – And Alexandre Bilodeau wins Canada’s first ever gold on home soil. Congrats on being the answer to a trivia question.

8:57 – The weather channel guy said that the alpine skiing course should be ready to go tomorrow. Excellent.

9:10 – Both Russian skaters fell on their side by side jumps…..and they get the 3rd highest score. Figure Skating is stupid.

9:18 – Is it too late to do an Iron Lotus joke?

9:30 – Bob Costas with an interview of Dick Button. At 78, Button still looks great.

9:35 – Some nice home cookin going on in the figure skating competition.

9:39 – That was a great routine. I look forward to them getting 11th.

9:46 – The final team of the night will be the duo from Germany.

9:50 – Ummm, interesting costumes from the Germans.

9:51 – And their music choice is Send in the Clowns. This is terrifying.

10:00 – Alright folks. I’m signing off for the night. Join me tomorrow for more coverage from Vancouver.

    More speed skating, aerials, some luge …anything to tide us over for the better stuff …screw the ice skating they ought to go to just plain requiring nudity for that at least for the chicks.

    Why are Asians so shiny?

      February 14, 2010 at 6:58 pm

      Is this a set-up for me? Many Asian chicks are spicy. Pay attention Moleman!

      Otherwise they do tend to take better care of their skin I have noticed.

    What the fuck I’ve commented here before. Fetch!

      Apparently you haven’t.

    Have so, I commented on one of Paolo’s posts. I remember because I was impressed with the size of the gravatars in this fine establishment.

    • February 14, 2010 at 7:18 pm

      Yeah, wrong blog champ.

    • Paolo X
      February 14, 2010 at 7:36 pm

      Fetch is right again TST but welcome. Your comments were on my first NBA post on Fetch et al’s college basketball blog.

      Anyway, how I wish I know how to affix an avatar on here …something to tinker with tonight any pointers on where to start?

      • February 14, 2010 at 7:37 pm

        paolo: if you go to WordPress.com you can create a profile and then get an avatar.

    February 14, 2010 at 7:18 pm

    OH. This is a different blog isn’t it. You might have too much time on your hands.

    • February 14, 2010 at 7:22 pm

      No argument there.

    I didn’t know you had a Twins blog, I’m gonna go get your thoughts on Jacque Jones despite the poor way I’ve been treated here. Good day.

    • February 14, 2010 at 7:22 pm

      Nooooo! Come back!

      • Paolo X
        February 14, 2010 at 8:51 pm

        Fetch, maybe you can translate this for us, as this sounds kind of catty like too many ninnie bitches on this day not what I thought was characteristic of TST. What did you do offline to piss him off?

        Why is he pissed off? What’s his problem?

        And TST damn dude go get yourself something inebriating to drink, eat a big meal, take a huge dump and shake it off whatever is eatin’ you — life’s too short.

    This is only a test folks …only a test.

    February 14, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    Hey Fetch …I’m all set up with WordPress with a gravitar now thanks …it works on your other site but not here …why not damnit? Man was it hard to steal such a solid image too.

    What did you do restrict gravitars to only rated G?

    Geez dude mine is rated PG c’mon give us a break!

    • February 14, 2010 at 8:53 pm

      I fixed it. Sorry, I thought I had it at X. My bad.

  14. Oh No Romo

    What the…? Where am I?


  15. Paolo X
    February 14, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    Awww man Fetch how long they going to keep up this figure skating shit? C’mon NBC the old folks are in bed already on the East Coast it’s late for them already! Why not show this crap during the daytime for them?

    And if it weren’t also for those meddlin’ damn kids who don’t have school tomorrow after being off most of the week anyway too.


    • Oh No Romo
      February 14, 2010 at 9:20 pm

      Rooby Dooby Doooo!!!

    • February 14, 2010 at 9:22 pm

      I think it’s mostly figure skating for the rest of the night. The skiing being rained out messed with it.

  16. younglefty
    February 14, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    So, uh, that chick in the blue thing had a nice ass.

  17. Paolo X
    February 14, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    Okay good idea Younglefty.

    Let’s just rate then the chicks and describe potential sex scenes with them so long as there is figure skating on? That should help the time pass.

  18. Paolo X
    February 14, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    One of these couples ought to implement a hard ass slap on her by him and a crotch grab on him by her into the routine should they screw up …nothing to lose right?

    Pretty good pooper on this chick and she looks alright but poor girl she will cry now.

  19. Paolo X
    February 14, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    Listen to these NBC bojack douchebags dance around the obvious truth — it’s rigged and corrupt you fucks with some home cookin’ by the judges on that routine by the Canadians!

  20. Grogg
    February 14, 2010 at 9:38 pm

    I don’t understand how you ca suck at life and still manage to be 3rd in this ice skating thing. Seriously.

    • February 14, 2010 at 9:48 pm

      Do they let Canada judge this? Gotta be their fault.

  21. Grogg
    February 14, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    I think that if you fall down you should skate off the ice immediately and not get a score. That would shorten things up considerably.

    • Paolo X
      February 14, 2010 at 9:50 pm

      Yeah right Grogg but if they insist on a score the chick should have to get naked and have her bare ass spanked publicly too. No pain no gain and due punishment for failure of course.

      Those folks paid good money to see a real show after all.

      • Grogg
        February 14, 2010 at 9:52 pm

        I like the way you think. Plus you have to figure the IOC would make a lot more money if the figure skating was pay-per-view.

  22. Grogg
    February 14, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    I guess he sort of does look like a chinese incredible hulk…

  23. Grogg
    February 14, 2010 at 9:48 pm

    Not good enough to beat Canada. Surprise!

  24. Grogg
    February 14, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    German clowns? I think I had nightmares about those as a child.

    • Oh No Romo
      February 14, 2010 at 9:53 pm

      You sure it wasn’t the Germans from the Big Lebowski that gave you the nightmares?

    • Paolo X
      February 14, 2010 at 9:54 pm

      Right kind of an oxymoron no wonder you had nightmares Grogg …I don’t think there is such thing as a German comedian …just not a funny bunch and so stiff, but damn do they make good cars, sausage, sauerkraut, machinery, luges, bobsleds, and of course beer!

    February 14, 2010 at 10:00 pm

    Canadian Ice Skating Trivia:
    Short of not finishing a routine or taking the ice on time, what must Canadian ice skaters do to ensure medal failure?

  26. February 14, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    There’s a half hour of late night that will be starting at 10:30 Central Time.

    Thanks everyone for stopping by, especially Paolo and Grogg who seemed to revive things at the end.

    See you guys tomorrow.

    Off topic: Anyone remember that song “My Sharona” by the Knack?

    Well the singer named Doug Fieger is dead:

    Had no idea of his name or that he was from Detroit …

      I am a bit devastated.
