HOLCOMB DOES IT: Americans win at four man bobsled! Holy cow. That never happens.

And with that gold medal I believe we set the all-time Winter medal count record with 37. (That's including the medal in the hockey game later today, color to be determined. I don't have a good feeling about beating Canada twice.) In a sporting event like this you can usually look at a lot of different areas where if X or Y had happened we'd have less medals, or more. But really, in these particular Olympics two of our medals were out-and-out gifts from the Korean short track team (and Ohno and Celski were in a position to accept the Korean generosity) so if you need to point to a particular moment to explain why we're at 37 and not 35, well that would get my vote.
