Winter Olympics

Recommended Posts

Anyone watching the winter olympics this year? Is there any particular event you're going to watch?

I thought the opening ceremony was on tonight, but I've been watching for a 1/2 hour now and its just info and olympic stuff, but no ceremony... maybe they'll start an elaborate ceremony soon? *watches in the background until something starts*

I'm pretty sure it's tonight. I'll give another 30mins. I just wanna watch Korea to enter. Korea did good on speed skating last Winter Olympics so I'm excited about that. Don't know why they still have curling crap as one of Olympic games.

Can't believe they showed that guy from Georgia die. I think they constructed that coarse wrong? It said 12 other athletes had similar accidents although they weren't seriously hurt.

I hate NBC though..they always and mostly show Americans and ignore other competitions/competitors. Oh well.

Kind of like how the BBC will show mostly British or how ARD will show mostly Germans and their activities in the olympics. Man you must hate those too.

BTW I never knew this til just now, ARD stands for "Arbeitsgemeinschaft der öffentlich-rechtlichen Rundfunkanstalten der Bundesrepublik Deutschland"

BBC does? Anyway watched Australian coverage on Women's Gymnastics in 2004 on youtube. They covered everyone competing which was fun. It's just boring watching one team over and over without any variations. This is Olympics after all. I'm also rooting for Romania.

Damn, opening ceremony sucked O_O Give our lands back dance by Natives were creepy.

That opening was so boring. The floor effects were pretty cool tho, but damn the ceremony was long and uneventful. And what was up with all the tap dancing? :wtf:

It'd be awesome though if the torch had freggin lazer beams on it, that actually cut through objects, and the runner, unbeknown of it's real function, runs around with it pointing to the crowd, etc. to kill all those bystanders, point to the sky and slice up plane engines/ wings/ Gundams/ etc.


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

When those torch beams/cauldron was lit, it looked like 4 joints lit up leaning against a bong. I thought Canada was trying to say they were pro-marijuana, but later I realized it was just an artistic thing. It still looked like joints to me when it was dark and they were lit up.

He owned the halfpipe! X'D Nobody even came close to his score! And then he topped his own score on his second run just for the hell of it! X'D

btw, did you notice the profile videos of the snowboarders on the video screen? Most of them looked all conceited and full of themselves. :rolleyes:

Go USA hockey anyone? Upsetting the Canadians at their own game.

I'm called a hypocrite for listening to rap, liking stem cell research, having long hair, and speaking my mind and I registered Republican.

Curling. :lol:

hey mimiru! :wave:

yeah! USA beat the canadians! I didn't see the game, but I heard alot of canadians were pissed off.

Yeah it was beautiful to watch the Americans hold off the canadians and win it. I wish it wasn't just preliminary because it would have been awesome to knock out the canadians at their own game. Btw hai everyone. Crawled out of my hole.

That last one was the best. Deadpool shows up just to blow shit up! X'D
I was hoping he'd snipe someone in the crowd... but blowing them all up works too.
