According to the NHL Bracket Challenge, I have 50 points and have correctly picked the winner of each series so far. That puts me ahead of some rather famous people: Jon Hamm of Man Men (20 points), Barry the NHL Mullet Melrose (13 points), Alyssa Milano (10 points), Kristi Yamaguchi (10 points), and Pat Sajak (0 points).
YouTube is taking its sweet time so my pole video post will have to wait. In the meantime, a few random thoughts about Dancing With the Stars. First of all, I am SUPER excited to see Meryl Davis and Charlie White take the stage. That said, the producers must be at least vaguely aware of the fact that putting Olympic gold medalist figure skaters in their lineup means that the rest of the competition doesn't stand a chance. (Ahem, Kristi Yamaguchi...) Putting more than one Olympic gold medalist figure skater raises the level of suspense just a little, but I predict beyond the shadow of a doubt it's gonna be one or the other. I feel sorry for the rest of the contestants, going up against people who have basically done nothing but dance their entire lives, except with metal blades on their feet, which is even harder than regular dance. But oh well, they've still got a viewer in me.
Kristi Yamaguchi interviews Charlie White and Meryl Davis about winning the first ever Olympic gold medal in ice dancing for Team USA.
Coaches and athletes have close relationships — in some ways, as close as the link between parent and child.  Like parents, coaches work to inspire and encourage their charges to do their best. We asked some Olympians which techniques parents might adopt from their mentors. Here's what they had to say: Show them how much you believe in them. The medal-winning U.S. women bobsledders gushed about their coach Todd Hays, calling him “the alpha of the Wolf Pack” (their self-proclaimed nickname), and saying that his passion for bobsledding and belief in them is what propelled them to win bronze. “He makes you believe every single word he says, and you feel it and you fight for it and you want to prove him right,” said Aja Evans. “No matter what, he’s just so determined, and it rubs off on you and it makes you a better athlete and a better person.” Snowboarder Alex Deibold, who won a bronze in snowboard cross even though he was a distant underdog, said that his coaches’ belief in him — even ...

Fleming to Sumners to Kwan. From when I was young, every Olympic women's figure skating podium had a US woman on it. Then came the Vancouver shutout. Now Sochi. But I do see hope. Gracie Gold is young, and already very fluid, artistic and powerful. She reminds me of Kristi Yamaguchi. There will be tough competition 4 years from now, but instead of the US aiming to overtake other countries' skaters, she will be among those others seek to overtake.

And more judging controversy: Judge No. 2 tonight, Yuri Balkov of UKR, was suspended for a year for trying to fix the ice dancing competition in Nagano in 1998. Really. And lovely."

Call me an old cynical *** but this is the worst figure skating competition I've ever seen. Have they lowered the bar? I don't ever remember seeing *** and knees hit the ice so much during the competition. Is this the Olympics or a warm up drill? The Russian girl fell twice and she's in first place. Why? Because all of the other ones were more horrible than her. Did Peggy Fleming fall during her Olympic Performance? Kristi Yamaguchi? I don't think so.

What happened to the days of figure skating when the best of the best were household names? (Not to mention some of the crazy... Ahem...
