They haven't had the best start with the tragic accident yesterday. Will you be watching any of it?

I'm looking forward to see Northug in cross country skiing, and biathlon for men. Curling is also fun, but that will probably take place in the middle of the night here.

For some reason the Olympics never attracted me but I saw the indecent. Pitty for what happened but IMO those big iron colons should have never been there or at least not too close to the slide.

You just don't understand it! :D  When Norway took the gold in Salt Lake City, the whole country got up in the middle of the night to watch. It's incredibly exiting when you've got someone to cheer for.

I  thought all French was into Petanque, it's not that different. (If you don't count the ice and the brooms). :p

Everything can seem boring if you don't know the rules. Even cricket is interesting for those who knows what the point is of it all. :D

Short track speed skating kicks serious arse.  Congratulations Apolo Ohno (Silver) and J.R. Selski (Bronze) in 1500 m short track final! Great finish in the final! and Congratulations to Koreas Le Jung Su (Gold). What a great race!
Short track speed skating is exciting....even if you don't know the rules:yes:

I know the rules of Baseball but i think it's one of the most boring game to watch.

Fun to play, boring to watch.  Speed skating doesn't last as long as a baseball game and there are no bases. It does, however take some balls to participate. :D
