Braving A Blizzard Now The Only Way To Watch Olympics Live

Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and the blogosphere to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.

•Jason over at Orland Kurtenblog sends along this delightful picture of a lone backpacked figure enjoying the Canada-Norway hockey simulcast from a snowed-out Whistler. It was either that, or sit inside by a roaring fire with a nice mug of hot cocoa, and watch curling.

•It took overtime and a near triple-double from John Wall, but Kentucky escaped with a win at Mississippi State. MSU fans classed it up, bombarding the court with bottles after some questionable calls went UK's way. Too bad they were aimed at the refs and not Wall, because with a few more blocks he could have gone for the quadruple-double.

•Sadie the Scottish Terrier won best in show at Westminster, but not before PETA protesters invaded shelter rings with signs denouncing purebreds. As is my standard response to PETA, for every dog you save, I'll eat two.

•Darrell Green celebrated his 50th birthday by running a 4.43 forty. The Raiders are now looking at him with the eighth overall pick.

•Chien-Ming Wang finds himself out of the major leagues, after signing with the Nationals. It's an incentive-laden 1-year deal, the main incentive being that if he pitches well, he won't have to re-sign with Washington in 2011.

Easy like Wednesday morning. Which is to say, not easy at all. Let's power through.
