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.
