    Anyone watching the Olympics here? I've just finished watching short track speed skating and watched Ohno's ass get kicked.

    ...or maybe she just noticed she wasn't as good as the other girls, and was afraid of failing.

    Wow Canada's womens hockey team is killing the competition so far! They beat Russia 12-0 and Italy 16-0......that is insane.

    When's the figure skating? Right now, it's just snowboarding, which is boring to watch.

    Is everyone just hanging on the edge of their seats waiting for the curling competition? :biggrin:

    Wow, I saw an interview earlier with Shaun White, on the US snowboarding team...until they showed his name and he began to speak, I thought they were interviewing a woman! He's extremely feminine looking. Even his voice isn't all that deep...I was thinking it was just a deep female voice, until they put his name up and showed clips from the men's competition he was in.

    I watched the snowboarding. I kept laughing every 5 minutes or so. I would think of people like Eric Hayden, Franz Klamer, Mark Spitz, Jesse Owens and all the other big name olympians. Then I would think that these 18 year olds who, admittedly, I would call degenerate if I saw them on the street, share the same "olympian" title. The world is a funny place some times.
