Snowboard cross doesn’t happen — and neither does anything else

Apparently it is also President’s Day in Sochi, because the Olympics seem to have taken a holiday this morning. Maybe everyone goes to mattress sales there, too.

The only event scheduled — men’s snowboard cross — was canceled due to fog. So, what else did you miss?

[Crickets. Not to be confused with cricket, which was also not happening, at least at the Olympics.]

So the answer to what happened while you were sleeping is: nothing.

For those of you who have the day off and aren’t yet at a mattress sale, it’s time to tune in to the U.S. women’s hockey semifinal against Sweden (7:30 a.m., NBCSN). It’s just what our great presidents would have done.
