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?
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.

putin IS a prick. the body count of about 130K syrians MANY OF THEM CHILDREN beats a path
to his door!!!! also many sports boring and irrelevant…with respect to the mindless blather
lot american journalists…..well, what did you expect? perhaps a talking head without faceliftbotox
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.
