Tough Day For Shiffrin/Chen, Red Stripe Steps In, All-Star Weekend


It was a tough day for Americans in the Winter Olympics. Mikaela Shiffrin stumbled in the women’s slalom finals finishing in 4th place. At 18 years old, Nathan Chen was one of the most celebrated skaters at this Olympics, but after falling in his short programs, he is essentially out of medal contention. In some uplifting news, Red Stripe saved the Jamaican bobsled team by donating a sled for them to use during competition next week. Apparently the former driver/coach of the team left them in Pyeongchang without a sled (which seems very odd), but thankfully the Jamaican beer company stepped in.  As of Friday morning, Norway leads the medal count with 19.


The 2018 NBA All-Star weekend is here. The festivities begin on Friday night in Los Angeles with the celebrity game. One of the anticipated celebrities suiting up is Justin Bieber. Caleb McLaughlin (Stranger Things) will also be in the mix.  You can also tune in for the skills challenge, three-point contest and the slam dunk contest. On Sunday night at 8:00pm (ET), LeBron James and Stephen Curry will face off with their hand picked teams for the All-Star game.
