Default Winter Olympics 2010

Anyone been watching? I've checked it out a couple times, but mostly looking forward to the Mens Hockey.

I've been watching! I'm also looking forward to the hockey. I watched the Canadian women's hockey team squish the Slovakian team 18-0 the other day, but in my opinion the teams were not evenly matched. It was also nice to hear that Canada got it's first gold medal on home soil yesterday.

I watched a few hours on Saturday. Too many commercials unfortunately, so it gets annoying (no Tivo/DVR for me). I watched the short track speed skating, that was fun. A bit of luge and mogul skiing also.

I really wish I could go up there next weekend. So close, yet so far away (expensive).

8-0 Against Norway. Pretty stellar performance from my boys in the 2nd and 3rd. They were skatin a little flat footed in the first.

I'm a sucker for all things Winter Olympics. I'm not even ashamed to admit that I watch all of the figure skating (maybe slightly ashamed). My family is into skating. I've watched every event up till now except I missed the Biathlon, which sucks because that's a very entertaining event.

What are your guys' thoughts on the Women's Hockey "controversy"? I think it's bullshiit. Canada and the USA should score less goals, because it's unfair that other nations can't field a competitive team... We chastise a team for winning a hockey game 18-0, but vilify Usain Bolt for slowing down at the end of his 100 race in the Summer games. You can't have it both ways. The Olympics are about winning, and you go out there and you play a 60 minute hockey game. You don't let up. You try to smash records, and you don't worry about other nations' or competitors' 'feelings' if you do. If you can't tell, this issue has sort of struck a chord with me (I realize that 99% of people don't care about Women's Ice Hockey...). Instead of dropping the sport, they should only allow Canada and the United States to qualify- and stop this charade until the other teams catch up.

I'm amped up for this Curling action, and the imminent Canada vs. USA hockey match. U-S-A, U-S-A, U-S-A!!!

That was an excellent game. I'm glad they were able to pick it up a little in the last 2 periods.

I watched some of the Mens figure skating last night. I dont think youre lame for watching it, the only thing I have against it is it doesnt interest me that much, and its a bit boring. I think every team should go out and crush everyone else. Mens Ice hockey is going to be insane when the US, Canadians, and Russia start to meet up. I honestly can say I was no more impressed by one than the other two, so this should be good. On the womens side, I was initially nervous abour Finland and Sweden, but after Finlands showing against the Chinese, I no longer fear them, and hopefully Canada takes care of Sweden with ease today. Go USA.
