    I know, there are tons of things to choose from, but what is your favorite memory from the Winter Olympics this year?

    US vs. Canada hockey games without a doubt. If it was a best of 7 series than both teams proved that it would come down to goaltending and with Luongo and Miller they were evenly matched.

    I'm not much for hockey normally, but I watched most of the gold medal game and bits of a couple others... and I can certainly understand why people would think of that first. I strongly suspect that'll win this poll, especially with the help of some of our resident Canadians :p

    But I'm going to go with something very surprising for me. Normally, figure skating is one of my least favorite events at the winter Olympics, but Davis and White absolutely floored me with their Phantom of the Opera Dance, and that's probably going to be what I remember most.

    Honorable Mentions for me also go to Ohno, Joannie Rochette, and Curling. Vonn might have made this list, but I didn't get to see that live and the video I saw of it was pretty low quality :(

    I liked all of these options, but I voted for Shaun White's performance. It is incredible to see how much he is head and shoulders above the other snowboarders. It wasn't a shock that he won, but the fact that he went and bested his own score even after knowing he could've just boarded down the center and not done a single trick makes me respect him as a competitor and an entertainer. He's simply amazing.

    Hockey all the way. Both of the US/Canada games were fantastic.
