retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The 2010 Winter Olympics ended last night with the US winning the medal count with 37 (9 gold, 15 silver, 13 bronze), followed by Germany (10/13/7) and Canada (14/7/5). The biggest game of the day - Canada’s defeat of the US in the men’s hockey final, which it won in overtime 3-2.
KC's View:
o be honest, I didn’t watch much of the Olympics...but have to admit that I found myself captivated for about three hours on Friday afternoon, sitting in a Seattle pub with two friends, drinking beer and watching the finals in women’s curling between Sweden and Canada. I know nothing about curling, but I found it fascinating (though I’m also told that it was probably better because the sound was off, the NBC announcers could not be heard, and commentary was provided by one of my friends, who actually knows a little about the sport).
