    Opening Ceremonies are Friday, but several of the events have started including some skiing, curling, and luge.

    Once again, USA is going to take a dump on the rest of the world!!!!

    These are the Winter Games, not the Summer Games.

    I do look forward to The Flying Tomato putting on a show.

    NBC's Olympic media hype has been blowing this kid like he's the greatest talent to ever grace figure skating.

    His claim for gold in the individual will be that he's the only person in history to land 5 quadruple jumps in an event... assuming he can continue to pull it off and not eat dogshit like he did in the pointless new team event in his Olympic debut.

    Hopefully he doesn't turn out to be an overhyped bust that chokes on the biggest stage. Even so, he's young enough to have another Olympic appearance or two in the future to make up for it.... but we need those fucking gold medals NOW!

    Now that the NHL players aren't going I'm checked out. I'll watch the halfpipe events and then just refresh the medal counter every couple days.

    On the bigger stages so far (worlds) he's not been able to skate clean. I always hope that everyone will skate clean and the best will clearly win, not just who ever doesn't zamboni the most ice gets the gold. The pairs team competition short program was a bit cleaner, but only 2 of the male competitors managed to skate clean. Here's to hopping it just gets better!

    even Canadians like Elvis Stojko, Kurt Browning and Jeremy Wotherspoon

    Elvis was screwed by the judges in1994 and in 1998 he skated clean but with a severe injury. He didn't choke. Kurt Browning choked though. No idea who the other guy is, not a figure skater right? Just figure skating wise, it's very rare for the world champion from the year before get the gold medal (well in recent years anyway) I don't believe it's happened all that often.
