Wow, just channeled a certain someone. I'll quit now.
Not sure why we don't have an Olympic thread. (I know, I know, Vikings, football, yada yada yada.) But I know we've got our hockey guys all up in this place, and I know there are others that are watching other things (aka girlie curlie).
So talk all you want about the Olympics. Just do it here. No religion, no xenophobia, no nasty stuff, and if you're gonna post gifs and pics, use Olympians. That's the rule here, as it's TROLL'S FIRST THREAD!!! Oh, and if you're feeding trolls, save a %age for me.
Oh, by the way... TJ OSHIE IN SOCHI!!! The boy from WARROAD MINNESOTA via the Blues via North Dakota became a legend! He's got the fastest hands in the West, and the biggest brass ones, too. Seriously, you're in Putin's Russia, surrounded by gold-hungry fans and great hockey rivals. And you not only go 67% in the shootout, you basically do it by yourself and have to come up with excuses about why you didn't go 6 for 6 because you're that damn good! And you're smirking all the way through it!
When he comes back to St. Louis, someone in the area (ahem... TED) needs to buy this man some beers. But card him first. He looks like he's 16. You can even send me the bill (up to $20... I ain't rich).
And Quick was very good. But I watched him stand on his head on the way to a Cup. If he heats up, it's over. Just get them to the 4th shot of a shootout. Let the Quickening and the Sochi Oshie handle it.
BTW, h/t to Pavel Datsyuk for owning the American team. If you don't know who he is, he's the the Russian with the big pair.
But... this is a thread. I need to shut up. Discuss what you want, as long as it's Olympic. I'm just gonna sit here jacked up on great hockey.
