Vancouver's Winter Olympics

I love what I'm hearing and seeing from Vancouver.  What the sportscasters and others are saying mirrors my own experience when I visited Vancouver two summers ago.  Great food, clean town, friendly people.  All in all a very nice city that seems to be handling the Olympics fairly well. 

Couple of observatios:

  1. That dumbass TV station in Florida couldn't find an anchor who could pronounce Canada?  It's CAN-a-da, not ca-NAY-dia.
  2. Curling is not now, nor has it ever been, a sport.  It's a satire of sport.

You got that right. When I was a kid back home (well, okay then)... when I was just a little younger, we used to curl very occasionally. We all had hollow brooms, and we'd end up shitfaced on Canadian Club. Eventually the rink wouldn't allow us onto the ice, and we had to give up the sport. heh. Those bastards!

But for that, we cold have been stars!

Women's curling is kind of cute.

How about those Canadian girls and their hockey? Those mothers (literally, some of them are mothers) are cleaning up. Tough cookies or what?

What?

As far as commen'taterheads go, Floriduh isn't known for attracting Canadian tv personalities. They all graduate to the majors down there because of their command of the Queen's Engrish. They don't need major work on the lisping before being sent out into the fray.

Actually, I don't watch much television. I'm too busy sleeping during the day.

I suppose I disagree

I mean if enough people play it, I guess it counts, right?  It reminds me of shuffleboard.  Sure, it's not your everyday sport, but then again, neither is the luge, I mean, how man people do you know that have a bobsled course in their backyard where the neighborhood kids can gather and...

Say coaster, you remember the swiss bobsled ride at six-flags?

I don't know much about winter sports

Admit it, guys...

...you'd very much love it if she took a crap in your mouth.  I think I would.

HS, are you channelling Darth Shithead?

I didn't know you were into that... :P

You want curling fashion? Even I would wear these!

Well, maybe not.

What's next in winter olympic sports, snow writing?

Rajah's picture

Of course snow writing would be an all male event unless the females can devise some kind of hose attachment.

From what I've been hearing, the Vancouver Olympics are a fiasco

thanks to the utter incompetence of the organizing committee.  I seriously don't know how these people manage to dress themselves...

Considering the number of people injured while curling,

I guess it could be called a sport.  Of course, it's the only one I can think of where the athletes (smirk) get half snapped during the course of the game, then crack their heads or tailbones or knees on the ice when they can no longer keep their balance.

The thrill of victory and the agony of da feet!

Vonn wins the downhill

One point in favor of women's curling:

There's nothing hotter than a woman screaming
