Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics Thread #1

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Hey all,

There was some desire in the APC Open Thread to create a separate thread just for discussion about the Sochi Winter Olympics. Therefore, I'm putting this up to facilitate any and all discussion of ice and snow sports over the next two weeks.

If anyone's interested in the USA curling teams, I will be keeping a spreadsheet updated with their results (link here) and I would be happy to try to answer any curling-related questions you may have. Otherwise, Men's hockey starts on Wednesday the 12th and a full list of all the events can be found at Sochi2014.com.

In Packers connections, USA bobsledder Johnny Quinn, who spent the 2008 training camp with the Packers as a wide receiver, is having all sorts of trouble with doors in the Olympic Village this week.

Remember, all the coverage in the USA is on the networks of NBC/Universal, including NBC, NBCSN, MSNBC, CNBC, and USA. Enjoy!
