The Daily Hilario: Olympics, day 5, as men's hockey starts; Matchweek 26 continues

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Your daily dose of off-topic shenanigans. Welcome to the new tradition.

As much as I love curling, skiing, biathlon, and just about everything else in the Winter Olympics, nothing beat's the men's hockey tournament for drama, expectations, and excitement.  And it starts today!  The puck drops at 12pm EST for both games today:  Czech Republic vs. Sweden and Latvia vs. Switzerland.  That should make for some quality pre-match entertainment before the SAHKERR.
