Tonight was the final night of ice dancing. It was quite the amazing show. Personally, I think the crowd behind the Candadians helped them to win. That said, they also deserved it!! It was going to be a toss-up between the young Americans and the Canadians. The Canadians won the gold and did it in prime fashion. It was beautiful!! However, the older American dancer, Belbin and Agosto, came in 4th. That was wrong on so many levels. I can’t tell you how upset I am that the Russians came in 3rd. First of all yesterday, their costumes were hideous, to be nice. The ice dancing wasn’t all that good either. Then tonight, they come out and have costumes with belts on them so that they can use them during the ice dance program. He hangs her out only holding her belt and she practically rips his pants down holding his belt. I counted about 4 times they used these belts instead of ice dancing. In the end, the announcers said that because of that, next year it’s expected the rules will change on the costumes. They should have changed it this year!! They use the belts as a tool to skate while everyone else IS skating. And then the Russians had the nerve to say that the Canadians only won because they were home. Now I think it helped, but it’s NOT the reason that they did.
US hockey was off today. YAY!! We’re kicking some big butts!! In curling, the US men and women lost again. I think all hope is gone now. We’ll keep watching as we’re huge fans of curling, but somehow, our curlers just aren’t up to par. We still have more skiing and more short track to come and that should be quite the show.
Well, I think that covers my synopsis tonight. Here’s the final medal count….
