    Olympic Women's Hockey Etc.

    I found another aspect on one of my favourite sports that I've never watched before. My husband and I watched the game between Switzerland and Canada yesterday morning. We hope to take in the rest of those games.

    Anyone else watching Women's hockey? How about other sports in the Olympics?

    The only thing I really make it a point to watch in the Winter Olympics is, of course, figure skating. =D

    I might bother with a few games of hockey. Probably latter stages of the tourney.

    Great game between Canada and Latvia today! We're sure enjoying the games.

    :o I thought Canada would do it slightly more easily than they have against Latvia.

    Latvia was great and that goalie was nothing short of amazing! The team credited their Coach for being so supportive to them. Latvia will be the team to watch in the next Winter Olympics I believe.
