  1. Dateline was on at 8pm and Figure Skating action from Boston was on from 9-11pm. Little Russian teenager Evgenia Medvedeva was a killer last night straight slaying the hell out of the Americans like Gracie Gold on their own home turf. Can’t wait for the 2018 Winter Olympics and the Summer Olympics on August 5th.

      • The 2014 Olympics weren’t nowhere near as good as the 2010 edition up in Vancouver obviously but I wouldn’t call it a dud, it was still entertaining at times. I get where you’re coming from because the US had an unsuccessful run that year and if the US isn’t doing well there’s this naive notion that the Olympics are not good that season. I don’t watch the Olympics specifically for the US and Canada but I like watching other countries compete at the top level as well.

        They do need another Nancy and Tanya storyline to generate interest but that’s an once in a lifetime incident. I would like to see something similar to that though I really would like to see a fierce rivalry like that except instead of teammates between different countries where the two competitors just want to kill each other like literally kill each other or get into a physical fight live on TV. With the way social media has influenced our culture these days a Nancy and Tanya storyline would be even bigger.

        I do think the 2018 edition will be way better especially in figure skating which look real competitive but for US fans Ashley Wagner or Gracie Gold will need to step their games up but Polina Edmunds is another good name people need to remember too.

        Anyways I can’t wait for the 2016 games this year and it’ll be good to see some of the broadcasts live this year in primetime as well for the first time since the 1996 Olympics.
