Grog while luging?  :drunk: :weee: :lolg:

Actually, I love the figure skating and ice dancing. Love, love, love it.

I also really like to watch curling.  :shy:

But, one of my favorite events is the snowboard super pipe and some of the snowboard/ski events straight from X Games. We watch both the Summer and Winter X Games every year. Funny thing is, we are so not "risk takers", so we can live vicariously through athletes like "The Flying Tomato"!  :tomato:

Do enjoy watching it, although it hasn't been the same since Torvel and Dean did "Bolero". :clap1:

Prefer curling up on the couch with mamabunny. :hug:

Grog while luging!!  HAHA!  Maybe next time I visit Utah I'll have to go up to the luge and give it a try! 

We watch the X games with the same thought!!  We became Flying Tomato fans during the 2002 Salt Lake City Games!  That was such a fun experience. We got to see the torch running through the streets of a near by neighborgood and the huge month long party down town was so fun. There were lots of free exibits to go and see. We saw the Swiss Luge team walking around with their gold metals with a bunch of huge body guards. So Cool!  It was to expensive to go see any of the events that was the only down side.

My oldest daughter loves the figure skating it's fun to watch her dance around the room imitating them.  lol

Curling is just weird, but fun to watch. lol

Most of all skeleton (the kind of sport I would love to learn as it includes speed ) but I also like to watch alpine ski, snowboard, ski jumping (I prefer by far the winter games than the summer games, so I know I will watch the most I can )

King just picked up a USA Today/Sports Weekly Guide to the Winter Games. We always chart out medals and do some homeschool along with the games. Makes it fun and more interesting, I think. Here is a link to the Vancouver 2010 official site:

My heart goes out to the family of the Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili that lost his life in a practice run today.



Before you click on this link to the article I would recomend that if you don't want to see the acident don't look at the progression of photos in this article. (I made that mistake and I wish I hadn't  :'( )

I am a true Canadian. Hockey :) The sad thing is our athletes could bring home more medals and our first gold on our own soil. But if we loose the men's hockey people will only remember that. So they better not screw up this year. :)

I loved the whales from tv you really thought it was real :)

Well, if Canada continues to beat teams 18-0 (I don't joke, that was the women's score against Slovakia), there shouldn't be much of a problem.  Nevertheless, in a sign of true patriotic fandom I must say . . .

What's your favorite Winter Olympic event?

Well, I have actually played some curling on the computer before and I must say I wasn't that bad at it so if its on I will watch it and I do like watching all the sports, but my fav is Short Track.  I watch it for Ohno.  I saw him in his very first Olympics and I have been watching him in every Olympic since then.  He definitely had a wild ride today in the event, but he still got silver to get his 6th all time medal.  If you get to see a highlight of the game you should see it.  It was very shocking at the end.

Here is a link to the Vancouver 2010 official site: http://www.vancouver2010.com/

Thanks Princess!  I was wondering if there was any good schedules of the events out there.  I want to make sure I don't miss the next meet.  WOOT GO OHNO!!!!!  :clapping:  :clap1:  :clapping:  :clap1:  :clapping:  :clap1:  :clapping:  :clap1:  :clapping:

Yup, the one that came in Bronze had not been racing for I think it was 6 months before that race because when he was racing his own skate blade cut his leg open and came really, really close to his main artery.  He had to take time to rest and with no practice he won Bronze.

I like the first one because it not on shows different events, but also what country got the medals.  NBC one, on the other hand, I don't like as much because you have to give them your zip code.

:crazy2: Krazy_Kim :crazy2:

ETA: That guy also had to have 60 stitches put into his leg to close the wound.  :P

Eww! I know they kept showing when he cut his leg! Blech!!!!!!    I hate it when they show injuries like that over and over again!   :doh:


I put in my zip code and it just took me to my local NBC schedule. But it is nice that the other one shows who won the medals on the events that have already passed.

I haven't been on to update here much, but what a great Olympics so far! Watching Evan Lysacek win the gold was incredible. It was also cool to see Bode Miller get a gold medal since he has really turned things around since the last Olympics. Always love watching Shaun White - seeing him lay down those new tricks he created was wicked awesome!

I absolutely love ice dancing, so that has been so enjoyable to watch. Also been fun watching the kids react to the whole ski then shooting concept -  :lolg: !

Thought it was awesome how Canada was able to laugh at themselves in the closing ceremony. LOVED the mime with the toolbelt pulling that fourth pole up that got stuck at the opening ceremonies! Way to go Canada - a great Olympics!  :2thunbs: :clap1: :clapping: :thumb:
