    I suggest checking out the girl group Moranbong on YouTube. They are being sent to the Olympics.

    just watching the opening ceremony replay....

    t one point there were 1200 drones in the sky doing all kinds of large symbols/displays formations in the night sky..... pretty amazing to see a swarm of lights go from a random blob to forming the Olympic rings and other shapes in the sky in a few moments.. ... hard to get your head around ....:)

    look out!.. a drone swarm is coming your way one day..... yikkes...:twisted:

    insane.. watching snow board freestyle qualifying runs... going down over all kinds of ramps, rails and jump sections.... corkscrew spiral moves and spinning like tops through the air and landing dead straight downhill....

    every guy so far has nailed it..... awesome stuff..

    I’m enjoying Men’s Downhill training runs on TV now. Looking forward to tonight’s finals as I’ve been fascinated by top skier skill since Jean Claude Killy days. IMG_7832.JPG

    I like the Olympics. I prefer the winter to the summer because to me it is more interesting. Love the skiing, luge, and bobsled.

    I love the Winter Olympics. Easily my favorite sporting event and by a wide margin.

    I m put off by the B S of the Olympics in general. I m disgusted that congress in one of their stealthily-serving-corporate- interests-while-pretending-to-pander-to-the-masses momements gave "The Olympics" special status. I think them suing some poor Stavros for daring to call his establishment the "Olympic Diner" was the wake up for me. Since then they have bribed goverments' officals for sites and left the taxpayers paying the cost while they scoop up the "profits". And of course the environmental negative impacts...
    No, not excited.

    I’m actually more excited to watch hockey in the okympics now BECAUSE NHL all-stars aren’t in it. I see those guys play almost every night.

    Like in the summer olympics... I find the NBA all-star “dream teams” boring to watch.

    That may just be me though.

    Love me some curling!

    Too commercial for me. I'm not watching 5 minutes of curling, then 8 minutes of Bud Light and Tide commercials. I don't and won't EVER watch the NFL again, and I think the Olympics are a big money scam to get people to buy products. I won't waste my time.
    God, I sound grouchy.

    17 yr old Red Gerrard from the USA wins the slope style final.....
    youngest guy in the field nails his last run and leap frogs the field into gold....:cool:

    love how the snowboarders are wearing the baggiest, drop crutch, large parka gear they can, in competition......

    when most other athletes are wearing skin tight lycra trying to get the least wind resistance they can ..:lol:

    SWMBO hates the US competition jacket. She says it looks like it needs a good wash.

    She’s right.

    I'm sick of all the politics and everyone attacking the current administration to win brownie points. The games are supposed to be about representing one's country and now it's just people representing themselves. I no longer watch.

    I really like watching the snow boarders and the speed skaters. The rest not so much anymore. Madison had a good run of olympians once. I went to high school with olympic speedskaters Eric and Beth Heiden, Dan Imerfall, and Lori Monk. They all medaled. Miracle on ice Hockey players Mark Johnson and Bobby Sutter went to Madison high schools at that same time too

    I stopped watching when ABC stopped broadcasting the games. I got tired of watching 5 minutes of commercials for every three minutes of sports. The Olympics was much better when it was amateur event, and no sponsors were allowed. But the IOC and organizers have expensive tastes nowadays, and the Olympics is a great way to generate tons of money.
