Here’s an open thread for the weekend. Two Olympics-related items of note:
- The USA Men’s hockey team just defeated the Russians 3-2 in an extra-innings shootout. The hero of the game was my team’s (St. Louis Blues) own, T.J. Oshie, who scored 4 times in the shootout. This was an epic game, even before the shootout, and we beat the bad guys in front of Vladimir Putin himself. If you have a chance to watch a replay, DO IT.
- Apparently, Barack Obama has now become a fan of tax cuts. He’s decided that the Olympic athletes should not be taxed on their medals. Funny, Marco Rubio actually pointed this out already and sponsored a bill in the Senate to remove those taxes, but it died in the Senate. C’mon, Barry – you have a pen and a phone, remember? Just bloviating again, are you?
