Team Canada

While the majority of us are still basking in the glow of Team USA’s big time hockey win against Team Canada last night — no, I don’t care if it was only a preliminary round; Team USA hadn’t beaten Team Canada in Olympics Hockey in 50 years — I figured it would be fun to have some more fun at the expense of Team Canada, and thanks to the fine folks who upload at Imgur, we have just thing: An animated gif of that three-man collision from the second quarter.

Because of the image’s size (almost three megabytes), it’s coming up after the jump.

Lindsey Vonn Keeps Winning

Lindsey Vonn

We’re big fans of Lindsey Vonn, so it does our hearts proud to see her dominate the sport that made her famous. And dominating it, she is. In fact, since the calendar turned, Vonn has pretty much dominated women’s skiing, and early today, she added another trophy to her ever-expanding case by becoming the first American woman to win the women’s World Cup title in back-to-back fashion.

Not only is Vonn dominating her sport, she’s doing things no other American female skier has ever done. That alone deserves recognition. When you add her easy-on-the-eyes qualities, it’s no wonder the sports blogosphere has a special place for Lindsey. CBS Sports has more on Vonn’s dominating performance:

The American completed the 1.6-mile Olympia course at the World Cup finals in 1 minute, 42.49 seconds after posting the fastest splits all the way down.

“It’s amazing,” Vonn said. “It’s been a long season and it’s been really difficult and challenging, but I’m really happy that it’s over.”

She needed at least an eighth-place finish to win the title again… With three races left at the finals, Vonn has an insurmountable lead in the overall standings with 1,688 points.

This time, Lindsey, just make sure you don’t gash your hands during the celebrations.
