I was surprised to find there wasn't a thread on this yet. I watched a lot of Canadian hockey, and damn I hate Crosby. I really thought Switzerland would pull through.

And if the USA mens curling team has one more heartbreak I'm not sure if I can handle it.

anyone else folloing the games at all?

I watched Vonn but thats about all I've watched. I've followed it a little but mainly just the fact the the USA has raped a few teams in hockey, we are in 1st overall, and white is still the top dog in snowboarding.

Ive watched every event pretty much, glued to it.

The Great Britain will win the Curling reguardless.

Can't wait till tommorrow, Large Hill Ski Jumping is on. The Austrians are sure to win, although the Norweigans are consistently close behind them.

I can't be bothered with Ice hockey, its too boring.

I love watching the freestyle skiing, snow boarding.

Downhill, Slalom and Ski jumping are the most exciting events in my opinion, their the most anticipated events, especially by the Europeans because there the sports they are best at.

The figure skating has been really impressive this year aswel, i normally don't watch it but the Chinese are amazing.

Speed skating is brilliant too.

Of course its never complete without watching the cross country skiing and even better the Biathlon, i absolutely love them events.

Germans have been unbelievable again this year in the luge, the german that got gold was a second ahead of his team mate in silver who was already marginally ahead of third. That never happens in luge, thats like a f1 car winning a race a lap ahead of second. Brilliant!

So yeah, i pay alot of attention to the games :L I prefer winter olympics to the summer ones to be honest.


Oh yeah, and in terms of Venue, this has been one of the worst olympic games every. The stadiums and the facilities are brilliant, but the weather isn't right in van coover...I know you can't do anything about the weather, but it shouldn't be in places where the conditions are so poor.

Your opinion is wrong.


Anyway I'm happy with the way the olympics are going because everyone knows that we're going to win ice hockey, and that's the only event that matters anyway. Yay Canada!

Maybe the commentators do on TV, but make no mistake; to ordinary Canadians, it's still soccer.

Speaking of ice hockey... Shitshow by the men's team last night. Can't believe they had to go to a shootout to beat the Swiss.

I enjoyed watching that :D
that being said, even though the US is in first place, I full expect Russia to play Canada in the final, at least I think that's what would be the best game

It's hard to accept, I know, but a lot of Canadians will lie right to your face. We've learned to exploit our 'do-gooder' image in order to 'do evil'. Irony at its finest.

I.E:
Mom: Panchester, where were you so late? And why do you smell like whiskey?
Panchester :Mom, I was just doing some home work, at a friends house, when my friends dad accidentally dropped some whiskey into my mouth!!!!

Damn it!!!!!

EDIT: Looking at the passport, theress the british flag to the left side, but what flag is it to the right side.. the one with the three crosses?? Whatever it is, its a cool ass flag..
