    I think it's only Canadians and russians who get excited for the winter olympics...but I mean come on, they've spiced it up, this anti gay stuff has everyone speaking out, and fingers crossed, we have an incident on live tv. Not only that but Jamaica fucking qualifies for 2 man bobsleigh and can't afford equipment, but then gets bought equipment and loses it, and gets loaned equipment from other countries, whom I'm suspecting are big fans of cool runnings. In addition to that, there's a good chance the poor slope conditions will paralyze, maybe even kill a snowboarder, shaun white has already backed out, while the Canadian rep called mr White a pussy and vows to do the run balancing on his massive set of balls

    and there's this beauty http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4CEaoNADiY
    fucking hell, Canada speaking out against another nation? Well fuck me silly

    Stories:

    some company, probably westjet, loses bobsled - http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ol ... t/5220887/

    Shaun White is a bitch - http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ol ... e/5220453/
    and a Canadian in a onsie calls mr. White a bitch - http://q.usatoday.com/2014/02/05/sochi- ... n-toutant/

    is anyone else interested? Really after the ski-jump, bobsled, luge (except gay two man, I'm pro murika) and slopestyle, I don't think there's a chance anyone else will get hurt so that's all I'm watching... unless there's a biathlon fuck up...

    The only thing I would care about is seeing how well Lauryn Williams does in bobsled, because she's from my hometown. Also her sister was part of my graduating class. Other than that, I can't even watch the Winter Olympics anyways.

    All that money for the olympics nobody actually cares about.

    Also, have you seen the pictures online of the hotels and toilets and shit they built for it?
    Absolutely hilarious. It's like they had 2 days left of the deadline and only had the concrete poured, and went 'oh shit' and slapped it together for the least amount of money possible.

    That may be the best video I have ever seen.

    Also, I like the difference between China and Russia. China rose to the occasion, and Russia didn't give a shit.

    I don't tend watch sports or the Olympics.

    It is sad most of society is obsessed with physical activities, instead of intellectual ones.

    Lien fun fact: The founder of the modern olympics did win a medal in a none-physical contest.

    ...it was literature.

    I'll mostly follow the hockey, but will check the other sports from time to time.

    Germany vs. Russia hockey starting at this very moment!

    I think the Opening ceremony was cool. That's pretty much the only part of the Winter Olympics I'm going to watch - so I'm done!

    Where is all the creepy talk about which 14-year-old athletes are the hottest? You've changed, GR.

    Its cause they're all covered up in winter gear, unlike gymnastics or the like.

    Plus don't you have to be 16 to compete in the Olympics?
