To borrow a phrase that seems to have gained enormous currency among athletes here at the 21st Winter Games, I (naughty-worded) up.

The Canadian goaltender who blanked the Americans to win gold on Thursday was 23-year old Shannon Szabados, not Kim St Pierre. I got the respective numbers mixed up, 33 and 31, respectively, and once the idea got into my head it was firmly locked there.

It is regrettable, and there is no excuse. But whoever she was, that was some darn good goaltending, eh?
