    That's what I was thinking. But, we have common sense.

    Figure skating is the big ratings item for NBC. That and any Americans that win gold. They have Bode Miller's run tonight.

    Hockey is a big snore ratings-wise, although I'm watching Canada-USA and it's a great game through 2 periods.

    Bode Miller! That was the first mens alpine event where I had not inadvertently heard of the outcome before seeing it and what a great surprise to see him win GOLD.
    Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.

    Another goal by Team USA!
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    4-3 US and Canada is pouring it on. Amazing play by Miller and all of the US players going down to block shots. Less than 1 minute left.

    The intensity of this game is insane. I can't imagine what a gold medal matchup between these two teams would be like.

    Couldn't agree more. Hopefully there is no letdown in the next game.

    Great game! It was like watching an all-star game with the intensity of a Stanley Cup Final game. And the Yanks pull off the upset in Canadian soil. Just awesome.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Amazing hockey game...may have been the best one I have ever watched...but yes, unfortunately ice skating, snowboarding, etc. get better ratings than hockey---hence a great matchup on MSNBC...

    I caught that, too. The verbal stylings of Eddie Olczyk! Anyway, here's hoping the US doesn't have to face them again.

    That was the best hockey game I've ever watched. Just tremendous fro start to finish. paintmered summed it up perfectly with his All-Star/Stanley Cup description. The whole game was thrilling.
