I caught about 2 hours of the Olympics.  2 man luge and some snow boarding.  Is it over already?  Oh well there will be another one in 4 years. 

i caught pretty much the whole thing from one of the many intensive care units i was shuffled around

i have to say i found the olympics rather boring this time around.... and we all knew russia would have to win..

i know it bothers nobody but with rare flashes the "olympic spirit" is long dead...some korean dudde decides to turn russsian and gives themtwo golds... not much "olympic spirit" in that

the most annoying thing was that commercial about an amerian car that seemed to try to turn it into a posisitive that peoplein the USget no vacation and work nonstop...

indeed, the U.S has almost caught up to the medal count of a country with 1/10 the population.  congrats!

I've watched approximately 3 minutes of Olympics this year.

Travel advisory: Germans in Canada should exercise a high degree of empathy. Be nice, don’t gloat, give hugs, buy rounds of hot chocolate.

Just imagine how you would feel if Canada beat us in soccer 😱
