You can do it! Bela Karolyi style

The 2010 Winter Olympics opening ceremonies begin tomorrow in Vancouver. We are lucky enough to have five of our Pens representing their homeland: Sergei Gonchar and Evgeni Malkin for Team Russia, Sidney Crosby and Marc-Andre Fleury for Canada, and our fav boy from Buffalo, Free Candy, Brooks Orpik, sporting the red, white, and blue for USA.

I've got to say, Sarge dominated all of the boys in the Olympic photoshoot. He looks fierce. Sid had the most out of everyone with five, but all three of Gonch's were awesome. Sid's fierst photo is precious though. Brooks looks adorable as usual and poor Geno is just trying to get a good shot in... he got one... sort of... Fleury got one good one. I expected better photos from him with his big smile.

I can't just pick one photo of Brooks because he is just so adorable in all of his shots.

I could have easily posted the third, alright?

What a BAMF.

Congratulations to all of our Olmpians.. this should be fun to watch.

Oh wait, except we aren't going to get to watch CAN v USA on regular programming because NBC fails at life.

According to this article, NBC is choosing to air "ice dancing" (wtf is that, figure skating?) instead of hockey on the 21st. Why, you may ask?

"More women than men watch the Olympics. So chicks before sticks."

That is disgusting. I find that really insulting as a woman who loves hockey. I would rather gag myself than watch figure skating. NBC will never get it that no one who watches hockey likes figure skating... they keep trying to shove it down our throats by airing it after Sunday games, but no one cares.

Hopefully everyone here in the states gets MSNBC because that is where the game is getting pushed to. There are several game being aired on CNBC as well and I am not familiar with that station. All I know is I better get it, and in HD too.

If you'd like to see the tv schedule for all the hockey games, you can visit this link. Be sure to put in your own zip code and choose your correct cable provider.
