    the big Olympic money machine

    is anybody watching the Olympics? does anybody care?

    the wife tunes into GMA in the morning and i catch the GMA hosts gamely trying to pump drama into whatever happened the day before...it's like they're referring to events happening on some other planet.

    and the one event i did catch the other night was downhill skiing, which now looks like this:



    when did they put the tracks on the ramp - isn't holding the line on the ramp part of the sport that brought us classic moments like The Agony Of Defeat?

    I've been pretty bored with the winter olympics this year. Summer is more interesting IMO.
    I can only take so much curling and figure skating.

    What's up with Sochi ? Why does it seem like a hell hole and why does Putin seem like such a prick?? What's this I am seeing regarding the cost.. 51 billion. ... This can't be real.. ? Mars costs 2.5 billion to travel too. I don't get it. Some one who knows about this please lend light to abade these wild claims coming from Russia by American journalists.

    Bro, Sochi is 63F today (thanks to CFC's in our environment) when the northeast is getting MORE SNOW. It can't be that much of a commy hellhold if they're getting balmy temps in Feb. There will probably be waves breaking there starting this week.

    No really, we don't have to worry about that DMZ because it's not us and they made it clear last century they don't want our friendship let alone our concern. How American did you guys feel this morning after we beat the KGB in the shootout? Doesn't happen every day and you gotta love when it does.

    Love the Winter Olympics. Use to compete in moguls when I was younger...wish they showed more of that.

    Something about the Winter Olympics I love...there is always a sense of danger with many of the sports...big time speed and height. Even the figure skating. Pretty extreme getting a bat to the leg...that girl went to extreme measures for a victory...to bad that didn't work out for her.

    The only thing I don't care for is shuffleboard on ice, but like everything else. Been watching it since it started. Record what I miss.

    Nah, not watching and don't care. F Putin. They rounded up and killed all the stray dogs in Sochi, which I'm sure you all know.

    Haven't really been watching it. Usually do, but just not into it this time. Not sure why. Have watched more college basketball than Winter Olympics.
