Official 2006 Winter Olympics Thread

There may be little to no interest in the Winter Olympics (for all I know I'm the only fan). Or maybe there are a lot of you wanting to discuss Torino 2006

Either way, for the next couple of weeks let's put all Olympic discussion in this thread.

Re: Official 2006 Winter Olympics Thread

The only thing I'm really looking forward to is that Board Cross. Sounds pretty interesting. Warpath reminded me of hockey so I'm all about those as well. I'm normally a Summer games guy myself.

Re: Official 2006 Winter Olympics Thread

C'mon now, Hockey of course, and then theres one of the greatest sports of all time. It takes the most training and hard work than any other sport in Olympic history. Strategy and Stamina as well. Find out more about this sport!
p.s. I just bought a shirt as well to show my USA pride.
But yea Im following the 20th winter games

Winter Olympics will be my life for the next 2 weeks.
Not because I'm all that interested, I've been assigned to work the stats data for ESPN-SportsTicker.

Re: Official 2006 Winter Olympics Thread

I love the games, my only problem with em, is I get set to watch a cool event, then figure skating comes on, and I lack the patience to suffer through it.

Re: Official 2006 Winter Olympics Thread

USA is disappointing so far in the medal count. On the plus side, our hockey team is wiping their collective asses with the world so far.
