Okay, so yesterday was a rather disappointing day in Canada. All our medal hopefuls missed the podium. Seriously, even the Hamelin brothers came in 4th and 5th in their 5-person final. I already made it obvious that it annoys me when we miss the podium so often, so yesterday just reinforces that feeling.
Today is a very exciting day: the 3 best hockey games of the preliminary round happen today :) There is also lots of curling, a couple biathlons, some alpine skiing, and medal events for bobsleigh and speed skating. Check out ctvolympics.ca and vancouver2010.com for tons of Canadian coverage. Schedule after the jump.

Sorry about skipping out on lots of the preliminary events and the curling match-ups, but I just rushed to get this up at 10:30am. As I said above, you can find more stuff at the CTVOlympics and Van2010 websites. Here's your thread, Sean will most likely have a hockey thread up later.
*If anyone is ever interested in putting up one of these threads, put a comment in one of the threads before saying which day you want to do it. I'll be checking each night at 9:00 PST to see if anyone has called dibs on the next day, and if no one has I'll do it.
**Sorry, eightyseven, I know you said you would put up today's thread, but it wasn't up yet at 10:30am, and I'm a little bit of a perfectionist when it comes to putting things up at the right time to cover all the events.....
