2010 Olympics open thread: Day 7

Today at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, Canada taking on Switzerland in men's hockey should be a good matchup--especially considering how well (relatively speaking) the Swiss played against the U.S. team on Tuesday (they held on for a 3-1 loss). The snowboarding event is women's halfpipe, which should also be fun to watch, and skeleton is such an interesting sport, I'll try and catch some of that, too. Anton Volchenkov will be the lone Ottawa Senator in action tonight, and a double-header for men's curling? The days are just packed.

Join us in the comments throughout the day for all you could possibly talk about.
