Sochi Winter Olympics 2014

Recommended Posts

I watched a minute of the opening ceremony rerun and I noticed that Bermuda was even worst dressed - Red shorts and knee high black socks beat the American's sweaters imo.

 

ILAK -haha, if only that would happen.

Look I dont mean to sound like a dick but I'm not bothered about politics in Russia. I just created this topic to talk about the sports not to keep talking about Putin etc.

South Africa will win zero medals since our only olympic hopeful narrowly failed to meet the minimum requirements to be selected. He would've been our only contender in the slalom event. That blows! SA has never won a medal at the winter olympics (not that he would've won anyway, so maybe it's best that he stayed at home lol :p )

Yeah even if he just scraped the minimum requirements I doubt he would of been anywhere the top 25 nevermind top 3.

The women's skiathlon(?) was intense toward the end. Speed skating was alright but I look forward to the races more than the time events. I'm anxiously awaiting the luge, bobsledding, and snowboarding events.

I'd rather be a loser at the Olympics than a loser at home. Now I made myself feel bad, here at home.

 

I can't wait for bobseldding. Go Jamaica! haha.

I'm starting to really get pissed at NBC. f*cking luddites just can't let go of their Olympic cash cow and enter the 21st century for the betterment of the American people. f*cking tape delays, f*cking sh*t coverage on weekends, f*cking editing, f*cking Bob Costas.

 

They treat the Olympics less like sporting events and more like a two week long awards show coverage. I both am excited and dread for the hockey tournament to start.

 

EDIT: All I can imagine are bars across the country filled with people barely reacting to TV coverage because they know who has won already because every-f*cking-body has a phone with instant access to that knowledge.

We've had quite a bit of live coverage here and its only day two.

 

Also we won our first 'offical' bronze medal on snow today. Good times and well done Jenny Jones. :^:

Watching the ski jumping, and there's some guy called Andreas Wank. Also a Russian called Semen in the luge before the skiing. Must be the first time in history Semen has preceded a Wank.

 

Edit: Hodgey, it was only bronze. :p It was our first ever medal on snow. Our first ever, pretty shocking. I watched the men's snowboarding slopestyle yesterday, and that was pretty incredible. Came quite close to getting a medal in that.

I know it was bronze so I have no idea why I typed gold :sui: We did have that guy a few years back who won bronze in the Skil slalom but failed a drugs test then tried to blame it on a Vicks inhaler if I remember correctly.

 

Most been events so far that I'm not overly fussed about but its still been a fun watch.

Two golds for America. Yeeee!

Jamie Anderson had a great run. We've swept slopestyle; let's see what happens in the halfpipe. (:

As an American, I would like nothing more than to see team Canada get the snot beat out of them. And I'm an Anaheim Ducks fan. The Ducks' two best players are on team Canada.

As a Canadian, f*ck you. Hockey is the only sport Canada is awesome at. Hell hockey is the only thing I care about the Olympics, and I don't even watch hockey!

Two days ago a Dutch sweep on the 5000M. Which is a real sweep, not like your fake American sweeps.

Where you at guys?

 

Today another sweep by the Dutch men on the 500M.

 

Brings up the nationalism in me.

Yeah just finished watching the Dutch sweep the 500M, pretty impressive to be honest. The dutch are like the Brits are with the velodrom cycling in the Summer Olympics.

Yeah the 500m was thrilling stuff. Smeekens is super disappointed though haha. He should be happy with silver.

 

Anyway, too much orange! :p

I didn't get why Mulder's time got corrected, and I'm not sure how it works.

 

Cause otherwise Smeekens would've won by a few miliseconds instead. aren't they going to look into it?

I think it's fairly common in speedskating that the first unofficial time is not always 100% accurate, so they have to wait a few seconds for the official time to show up, which is always spot on.

This isn't about Vancouver, if that's what you think. I think that tournament went perfectly. Team USA dominated the entire tournament, and lost the gold with an overtime goal, giving team Canada their home gold.

 

This is about SLC. That was our home, and our gold to win. I hope a Koivu-less team Finland beats the Canadians and knocks them out of the prelims. I want to see tears coming out of Babcocks wee beady eyes! :p

I love watching the short track speed skating. Even the qualifying is good television. The slow beginning pace building up to the frantic finish.

Yeah I like those events too as anything can happen especially as if one person goes down they can take everyone else out.

You know what I find stupid? When there's a tie for gold, but then no one is awarded a silver medal. So the two winners get gold, and the person with the second best time gets bronze. No silver.

 

That's what happened in the women's downhill skiing just now. The second best time should get silver, and bronze should go to third, regardless if there's a tie for gold or not. Just my opinion though.

No I dont think so. That's the way that it has been for years and personally I agree with it. I say that as the person who came forth shouldn't get a bronze as its the top three or no medals even if you end up with three people tying for first.

 

Plus mens hockey finally starts tonight :^:
