That game in the men’s tournament starts at 7:10 a.m. ET and will be broadcast live on NBCSN.
There are six hockey games in total set for the day in Pyeongchang. It’s going to be a busy day as the men’s group stage and women’s quarterfinals wrap up in preparation for a thrilling final week of hockey in Pyeongchang.
The primary focus in North America will be on the USA-Russia game that starts early in the morning, but the stakes will be higher for the women’s quarterfinal matchup between Finland and Sweden at 2:40 a.m. ET.
There’s no squad in the NFL that’s more qualified to do all of this than the Packers, who worked bobsledding into a touchdown celebration this past season.
Or, if these guys are feeling frisky, maybe they could represent the U.S. in luge, which is like bobsledding, except infinitely more terrifying and dangerous.
Elite Youth Olli Maatta Jersey
Welcome to the best event in the Winter Olympics, and this is not even a discussion. You know who agrees with me? Curling enthusiasts Vernon Davis and J.J. Watt.
Watt tweeted his support for Team USA’s curling squad. Davis is actually in Pyeongchang to cheer them on.
Elite Youth Malcolm Butler Jersey Myers, who has played 207 games in the outfield in his career in addition to 327 games at first base, signed a six-year, $83 million extension with San Diego last January that takes him through 2022, plus a club option for 2023.
Part of the reason this game wasn’t a bigger deal is that the entire men’s hockey tournament isn’t as big a deal this year as it usually is. That’s because of the NHL’s decision to hold all of its players back Devon Travis Authentic Jersey from the Olympics, making it the first games since 1994 to not include talent from the greatest hockey league in the world.
The NHL’s owners and its commissioner, Gary Bettman, were of course within their rights not to let their players go to Pyeongchang. The league’s collective bargaining agreement with its players union doesn’t give the players the right to go to the Olympics if the league doesn’t want them there. (There’s more here on the dynamic of the league’s negotiations with the International Olympic Committee.)
