    That slopestyle competition was a hoot, more wipeouts than Red Bull crashed ice.

    Yes, it was on my screen, but wasn't following it. Way too boring.

    Watching the moguls final this AM when I got up, you could see Kingsbury is just better than the rest. Better jumps and better style while skiing.

    As an aside, Eric Radford who is partnered with Megan Duhamel in pairs skating, became the first openly gay male to win Gold at the Winter Olympics.

    There have been closeted gay males to win, like Brian Boitano and of course Mark Tewskbury and Carl Lewis in the summer games but Eric is out and proud.

    Good for him!

    Woke up early to watch the short track... Marianne St. Gelais got penalized on the first turn of her 500m quarterfinal and didn't get to compete in her best distance.

    Kim Boutin finished second in QF2 and advanced to the semis.

    Looked like she was going to finish 4th again, but finally got her medal. Could be the best earned bronze ever.
