Olympic Ice Hockey

Im definately looking forward to the winter olympics, but really only for the hockey. I have the NHL Center Ice package so I watch every Stars game, yet I have enough of a hockey appetite left over that I'm really looking forward to the games.

I find most of the other competitions amusing at best. Im proud of my Stars for getting Modano and Guerin selected for the US team, Turco for the canadians, and several Finnish players will probably go (if they don't take Jere Lehtinen, they just dont want to compete)

Anyone find other winter sports worth more than passing interest?

I like figure skating and the first one who laughs gets my fruity fist on the nose. I also dig skiiing, snowboarding and pretty much everything now that I think of it, but nothing can touch Hockey that's a given.

omfgpwned!

I love all the winter sports. Luge, hockey, coss country, biathalon, bobsled, speed skating, anything. I just wish they'd actually show the sports instead of a 20 minute drama on some competitor with 1 minute of action.

Oh, I like every sport except figure skating. That's just gay. Seriously, though, it's like gymnastics, but worse. The judging seems to have little to do with the actual performance, and that drives me nuts.

Wow, that's a great picture. And, uh... I didn't write that stuff about figure skating. It was... other kids. Yeah.

Here, take it. You always dreamed of getting one. Happy now?

Do a Google search for Jaime Sale and take that man badge back, son! I invented the damn things and I can sure as hell give and take as I please.

Great sport!

I've changed my mind. Ice skating rocks.

I'll be in my bunk.

I'm, of course, a HUGE fan of Olympic Hockey. (Do you believe in miracles? Yes!) I like anything that involves speed and hitting. I actually enjoy watching figure skating, since I skate myself and appreciate the skill required. But I hate figure skating competitions, cause the scoring makes no sense to me, too. Love snowboarding, is that olympic, yet? I thought that was still just an X-Game.

My favorite thing about the Winter Olympics is how all the "Xtreme" sports are now medal events... simply because the US wasnt winning enough medals.

Should be fun. God willing, the U.S. will take Silver and someone will place their stick in Bertuzzi's frontal lobe, and it'll be perfect.
