I like that one event where they ski straight down and then at the end there is this huge ramp and they go flying in the air for awhile. That would scare the crap out of me if I even attempted that.

Holy ****, only 2 weeks! I didn't realize it was that close.

I can't wait for some curling.

Curling is the only winter Olympic sport that I get excited about because fat people can do it. Oh and the part where they ski up and start shooting ****, that's cool too.

Always like the Olympics. Curling for what ever reason is enjoyable to me as well but only in the Olympics.

As someone who curls myself, I plan on doing nothing but watch curling in these upcoming weeks.

I would like to go curling. Seems like an underrated sport in the States. They make ice rinks, they should put out some curling areas. I would rock that **** hard.

The only people who hate on curling are the ones who've never tried it.

I've played it a handful of times, and I still don't really enjoy it all that much...decent event to watch but nothing overly exciting

Currently reading Boys of Winter, will probably watch Miracle a few more times, sporting my Kesler sig. I'm pumped.

I love this every 4th year. Olympic Hockey + World Cup is just too much awesome sports competition.

As TACKLE said, if you're expecting snow in downtown Vancouver, or Richmond (speed skating oval and a bunch of other things, it's about 15 minutes out from DT) you'll be mistaken. We've literally had two days of snow this winter. And it was like 5 cm's a day.

It'll be fine up in Whistler and everything, but I'm really disappointed we couldn't have more snow. It just makes it feel more like Winter.

Never been really big into the winters games, although I liked the speed skating last Olympics. It's a very unpredictable sport. The sprints are crazy, it's like roller derby except on ice, in tighter confides, and athletes are going nuts for an olympic medal.

Where do you go to curl, Pepsi Center? I know there is a small club that used to run out of there.
