Short track speed skating is my favorite event. It's a quick competitive race with a hint of danger attached. I feel like someone is going to get an artery sliced open one of these days.

I like that, bobsledding and the luge...

All because of the danger factor as you said..

Oh man... off the 4 teams I watched last night... it will be a bloodbath.

But I'm a man of my people. I'll make it happen probably tomorrow.

So is it going to take another Miracle on Ice for this hockey team to medal? Gionta is the only name I recognize on this roster. Looks like Russia is going to absolutely roll with Kovalchuk, Datsyuk, Marchenko, Vegas’ future Russian line of Gusev and Shipacyov(sp?).

Probably going to see Russia, Sweden and Finland on the medal stand, even the Canadian team looks kind of weak.

Does anyone really watch curling?

It's not much more than shuffleboard on ice. Every year people have made fun of it, except this year. I can't tell if the support is in jest or not.

I do. Mostly because I could do that. Probably not well, but I could do it.

Never skied, I'd probably die. Snowboarding falls under this same category. I've been on ice skates twice. Would definitely die.

Bobsled, luge, skeleton: probably die, definitely die, dead. I will definitely watch the hell out of these.

What's left? Biathlon? I could probably cross country ski with a gun, but that **** is long. Like 4 hours? **** that. I'd be bored.

I think that covers everything.

Was it just me, or were the figure skating commentators a lot more mean than I remember? Not that I have problem with it. They’re telling it how it is.

I prefer winter X games to the Winter Olympics


as far as the olympics go i tend to like -- downhill skiing, snowboard, freestyle skiing, ski jumping, bobsled, luge, skeleton, and ice hockey

not a big fan of any form of skating, cross country skiing, biathlon, curling (apart to check out the chicks)

They were extremely critical. A lot of skaters messed up and they'd call them out for every tiny mistake. BUT the thing that was really annoying was when a couple would do a perfect routine and they said things like "well, that was good but you just didn't feel the emotional connection."

There was a noticeable difference in the ski commentators who were like "Whoa dude! That was awesome!" Much more enjoyable.

I was reading a story about this on yahoo and I skimmed the comments. Someone wrote

“Johnny Weir makes Liberace look like Rambo”


I chuckled

Johnny and Tara are maybe the best commentator team in any sport IMHO. They aren't mean, not sure where that comes from. Johnny trolling Russia (after their anti-gay statements if anyone remembers) in the last Olympics was awesome:

Italy was robbed in the pairs, they were head and shoulders better than the Canadians. Canadian pair got there on politics or reputation.

So, apparently, some female Olympic ski flyer face wiped out on the ramp, flew off face first and face planted yesterday and, not only survived, but walked away. Anyone have a video of that? I've looked around a bit, but haven't been able to find anything.

I can’t find it either. Can only find the luge crash, which is also pretty bad.

Shaun White killed it on the half pipe for Gold. First run was really good. Got passed by Japan. 2nd run he fell. 3rd run he absolutely crushed it.

All anyone wants to talk about is how he let the flag touch the ground and then stepped on it while he was overcome with emotion after winning gold. I just don't get people sometimes.

Craziness...I watched it, he did nothing wrong...

First off, I don't understand why you hand a guy who is wearing a snowsuit, gloves and carrying a snowboard a flag..but whatever

More importantly, the damn flag was at least 4 feet long...if not longer..give those folks a smaller flag for chrissakes...
