In this edition, Canada fires back at the U.K., the U.S. won some more medals to retake the lead in gold medals and medal count, and Colbert Nation has arrived, but I just can't get excited about any of those things because the U.S. curling team hasn't won a single match. That's right, 0 for 5. What the hell, team? Minnesota, what are we keeping you in the Union for? Vernon Davis needs to take responsibility for this. He needs to bash some skulls or come up with a riveting speech to pump everyone up. He's got to regain control of the locker room, he's got a bunch of hotheads in there. His play-calling is probably bad, too. I think the team has lost faith in him. They should have totally picked me to be the honorary skip instead. Also, the luge team is hiring, or should be. Congrats to Lindsey Vonn, Shaun White, and Shani Davis for bringing home gold yesterday.
