MEDAL STANDINGS: I wonder if the Colorado College prediction people are sweating it a little bit at this point--they had Canada taking first and the US and Norway tied for second. Canada is not going to get close to winning the overall medal count at this point, and Germany is America's closest competition at the top. We really need a bit of luck to fend the Germans off at this point, I think--Vonn crashing today doesn't help, though apparently giant slalom is not her strong event (apparently it's the only event she hasn't won in on the international circuit.) Maybe there'll be a meltdown tonight in the figure skating and Flatt or Nagasu will medal somehow. Or maybe our strangely competent Nordic combined team will pull something out. Who can say.
