    Looking forward to the US coverage of events. That is, the only live stuff they show is US athletes, and in between the live stuff, they show highlights of the US stuff from less-popular sports.

    Some interesting new events this year. I do look forward to the Olympic hockey tourney. That's about the only time that I care too much about professional hockey.

    The 500 meter gaybash is shaping up to be close competition.

    Did they put wrestling back in as an Olympic sport yet?
  • trooster89trooster89 Are you from London?
    Yup. I heard something about it on the radio, when they elected that German guy the new head of the council.

    I can't believe they wanted to get rid of one of the oldest sports, to make room for wake-boarding and rollerblading...

    Back to Sochi. I can't believe after all the homophobia and hate, they designed their men's bathroom like this:

    Yeah that's weird, I prefer the Pilot and Bombadier setup to the Pilot and Co-Pilot. Especially in exposed open areas, that way you can't get snuck up on.

    Not that big on the winter Olympics. Summer has more events I'm interested in.

    What is the Pilot and Bombadier setup?
    Back to back.

    I used a pilot to co-pilot last time I was at Philmont with this view:

    Olympic Hockey is the only thing I watch with any consistency. Love watching it.

    I'm even more excited this year because of the larger ice size. Should open up the games considerably.

    Yeah I like hockey and also the moguls are usually pretty interesting. Super cool how fast they go and also seeing what jumps they can land and go right back to moguling.

    Really most of it but the idea of people flying down a tobbogan track at 100s of km/h excites me

    @ilriyas & @oni_dels
    Yeah it'll be hard for me not to root for team Canada with Toews, Sharp, and Keith there from the Blackhawks.

    At least Kane will be on team USA. :-)

    One of most honored and competitive events to ever be held at the Olympics; similar to wrestling, but with a more storied history.

    hockey, female figure skating, speed skating, curling, ski jumping, and snow boarding for me.

    I used to watch women's figure skating with my mom and sisters when I was a kid. I didn't watch it for a long time after I stopped being a kid, but now I watch it again with Betsy. I suppose Martin will watch with us this year.

    I think that's the only event anyone in this house is interested in for the Winter.

    9 more days!
    I'm pretty excited to see Shaun White rip it up. I might have to bust out the N64 for some 1080 snowboarding.

    Its weird that the games start today, but the opening ceremony is tomorrow...
  • midgamidga "There's so much hot dog in Rome" ~digi (> ^.(> O_o)>
    I thought the games typically started the day before the ceremony.
