Hell yeah, did you watch the womens slope style qualifiers last night? It sucks how NBC picks and chooses, but hey limited time. The chick from Tahoe made the rest of em look like fools!

Caught some of the men's but not women's. Can't imagine doing that with a broken rib like McMorris. Then falling on it too. Ouch...

Torah Bright from Aust looked great (in so many ways)

Love the olympics. I may like the winter more than the summer.

Love the curling, all kinds of snowboarding, freestyle, ski jumping

Figure skating not so much

One of our hometown boys (well, men, as he's in his early 30s) made his second trip to the winter olympics. He is a snowboarder, doing snowboard cross, and we was walking next to Shaun White on TV last night.

I don't care all that much for the guy (long story), but his mom and dad are great people and it was nice to see him on the screen as I'm sure his parents and family were so excited to see him again at the Olympics.

I love to watch the olympics- but I wish it was showing more sports instead of certain individuals being picked out for human interest stories. It's like watching a soap opera with a bit of sports thrown in. I'd like the coverage in the evening to be reversed- show much more sports and have those deep personal stories available online to anybody who cares about that angle.

I like it all! Hockey especially, but alpine skiing, curling, luge, bobsled, etc are all great. I dislike most figure skating stuff, especially the froo-froo dancing bits. I think most people like the skating, as that seems to be what they show the most but it's not for me at all.
