According to the German TV schedule, the first two runs take place tonight, but the dead line says tomorrow 4pm. So can we wait for the results of the first two runs and make our picks then?

Yes, TinaMarie. We wanted a luge singles as part of the game, and all of them have two runs on one day, and two runs on the other. So yes, you can wait and see what happens in the first two runs tonight before making your pick.

The citizens of Kirkland, still reeling from the Petter Northug debacle, choose Tatjana Hufner to win this event.

Unless they move the starting gate from Junior Start to Squirrel Start, at which time the Kirkland contingent will move to the ice-cube-making venue for the duration of the games.

Hufner.

This is the third event in a row I'm jumping on a bandwagon just because I have no idea of who to choose.

This is still a for fun contest, yes? And as such I hope I can leap in at any time?

Geisenberger would be my totally uninformed pick if I can.
