i dig the winter olympics. hockey, downhill, luge, speed skating...pretty awesome stuff. how cool is it that a guy from Spring, TX (10-20 miles north of Houston)won the 1st gold in speed skating! only ice we see is in the freezer or our tea!

we're glued to the tube every night during both olympics....

I thought Oly went out of busness years ago. Or maybe Rainer purchased them.

I'm immensely excited by the winter games. I definitely watch more of these games than the summer games.

The thing I hate is seeing the NHL shut down for 2+ weeks, leaving a highly motivated NYR team ready for a letdown, or burnout by NHLers by playing so many games in so short a time. USA (mens) hockey shouldn't expect to even sniff metal though...it's all Czech or Sweden. The women are golden.

The skeleton rocks, as does the now (seemingly wimpier) luge.

Are there really hotties on the curling team or am I being set up to watch Ellen?

Im a huge fan of the olympics, though i dont really care about the sports during non-olympic years. I love watching bobsledding, curling, downhill skiing and pretty much anything else thats on. Its just fun to watch a lot of sports you rarely get to see. Also it kills some time in between football and baseball.

It's kind of like bowling, only the bowling ball isn't round on the bottom, and you do it on ice, and you get to use a stick and brooms, and apparently the chicks are hot.

Caught curling tonight. Poor outing for the US vs. Japan (at least what I saw). But let me tell you: the johnson sisters are ha-ha-ha-hot!
