OLYMPICS | GOLDEN MOMENTS
The Olympic Games ended last night in Pyeonchang, and it breaks my heart that I’ll no longer be judging Olympians from the comfort of my couch. It was Norway’s way this game with a record 39 metals, the most medals won at the Winter Olympics. The US walked away with 23 metals (9 Gold, 8 Silver, 6 Bronze). Here are some of our favorite moments over the past few weeks:
- Red Gerard (and his beer shot gunning family) set the tone with the game's first US gold and became the youngest Olympic snowboarding champion ever.
- Adam Rippon (America’s sweetheart and Twitter Queen), Mirai Nagasu (and the triple axel heard around the world), and Shib Sibs help the US nab bronze in the team ice skating event.
- Chloe Kim, won the gold in Women’s Half Pipe, and our hearts, while tweeting in between her winning snowboard runs about being hangry. #relatable
- Shaun White sported his much-improved haircut, and cemented his status in snowboarding with his 3rd halfpipe gold medal.
- The US Women’s Hockey team defeated long time rival, Canada in a shootout move called, “Oops I did it again,” and won their first gold medal since 1998. Sorry about it eh?
- Jessie Diggins (Olympic flag bearer and gliterrati) and Kikkan Randall won the US their first Olympic gold medal in cross country skiing.
- Matt Hamilton (aka Super Mario’s Twin) & Team USA defeated Sweden and won the country’s first gold medal in curling.
- Lindsay Vonn won bronze with her final downhill ski, and scattered her Korean vet grandfather’s ashes at the Olympic Downhill Course.
And in case you missed the closing ceremony - it was LIT (literally, there were roller skating lit up pandas): a 13 year old shredded, drones made a heart, KPOP is the future, and a giant snow globe. Bye, bye Korea!
Going to miss the Olympics? Same. But we're keeping the Olympics alive in our heart and our hair. Check out our hair curling tutorial:
CBB | NOT SO SUPER 'NOVA
Zoom, zoom, zoom makes Creighton's heart go boom, boom, boom. The No.3 Villanova Wildcats fell to the unranked Creighton Bluejays on Saturday in an overtime thriller, 89-83. Thanks to 52 points posted by the Bluejay duo Marcus Foster and Khyri Thomas, Creighton was able to defeat their highest-ranked opponent ever. The Wildcats uncharacteristically missed seven of their last nine shots in OT, and the Jays flew away with it.
With another loss under their belt, the Wildcats now trail Xavier in the Big East Conference. With March Madness just around the corner, Villanova will have to shake off their unsettling loss to defeat Georgetown this Saturday.
NBA | LA Clippers vs. Houston Rockets (2/28 – 10:30 PM EST): The Clippers have been undefeated against the Rockets this season, but their star player, Blake Griffin recently left for the Detroit Pistons. Can the Clips grab a win (without the locker room drama this time) against James Harden and the Rockets?
