Don't know how many of you care, but today marks the start of the XXII Olympic Winter Games held in Sochi, Russia. Didn't see a topic so I decided to start one for anyone who want to discuss.

 

For US based forum user, all Olympic coverage is handled by NBC and will begin tonight at 8pm EST. If you are a cable subscriber, depending on who you subscribe to, you can stream all events at nbcolympics.com. All information about event times and such can be found there as well.

 

As I write this the Men's paired short program for figure skating in happening now.

 

So yeah, anyone else watching any of these games?

It's way bigger deal than Summer Olympics for us. But unlike previous years, we really don't have medal candidates this year. Last 3 olympics we've always gotten at least a gold, but this generation is too old by now.

Told myself I will buy a Molly Schaus (one of our goalies) jersey if we win gold (US women's ice hockey) this year. Also looking to see just the general interactions and stuff that happens due to Putin's anti-gay laws. Also hoping somebody gets revenge on Crosby for last time.

I love me some Winter Olympics. Hockey, Curling, Biathlon and Bobsled/Luge are my favourites, but I usually watch everything I can except figure skating.

Oh, that nostalgy on the 50's-90's part. I've ridden in more than half of these cars that drove on the stadium...

Pretty nice show.

The countries marching in the Russian alphabetic order was strange. Too bad everything's so early in the morning, I'll probably miss most of the live events.

Watched some of the slopestyle before running this morning. Never really been interested in Winter Sports but I think I'll give this a go.

Pretty nice show.

I was sorta disappointed with the commentators on NBC. It seemed most of the banter during 20th century presentation onwards was just negative. Other than that I enjoyed the show. But personally I don't think it matches the scale they were going on which was Beijing opening ceremony. Nonetheless I enjoyed it, even if I didn't understand any of the reference made in the show. TO WIKIPEDIA!

 

Right now Women Canada Swiss game is on. I wanted to watch slopestyle but I was too tired. Gotta wait for 8pm EST I suppose. But happy that American Sage Kotsenburg won first gold medal of the games.

 

Summary of the remaining medal events.

9:30 AM EST: Biathlon Men's 10km Sprint (Medal)

1 PM EST: Freestyle Skiing Women's Moguls

Not sure if it's a fake article (Though knowing the USSR it probably isn't) but I'm sure people don't just "trip on a set of knifes" in their hotel room.

Does United States even have a domestic ok alcoholic drink? Besides the good ol' Jack? And no, I don't count Puerto Rican as American.
