Re: Winter Olympics

I'll be super into the hockey; but beyond that just a casual watcher. Really hoping Team USA can repeat what they did in Vancouver 4 years ago; but its a much tougher field (in my opinion) than it was in Vancouver. Gotta pick up at least two wins (Slovakia and Slovania for sure) in the round robin to make sure we crack the tournament.

It is a niche sport here but it is big in Canada. The best even have groupies that follow them around.

Re: Winter Olympics

Turns out the fail is strong Sochi as theres a whole twitter feed called 'Sochi fails' dedicated to many of the bizarre findings coming out of Russia at the moment. Many of which have to do with wash room arrangements.





Never was one for toilet humor but this was enough to crack me up.

Solution, boycott ESPN for 16 days.

Stay away from Yahoo too.

Re: Winter Olympics

Yawn. Host country won.

Between the doping, the judges in the judged events and the horrible conditions on certain courses such as snowboarding...who didn't see this coming?

Oh well, our athletes still made us proud as they always do.
