2018 Winter Olympics Catch-All

I honestly have zero idea if there's any interest in a thread, but screw it, NBC's airing this live coast-to-coast and Imma watch the hell out of this.

I'm watching curling. I have no idea what's going on except for the fact the guy from the US looks like a Super Mario Brother.

Definitely will be watching Chloe Kim.

If Adam Rippon's 28, then I'm pushing 60.

Chloe Kim is the Jean Girard of women's half pipe.

Ice cream > macchiato

Now the wait to see which ice cream outfit gives out free ice cream to all in the US...

Took me entirely too long to figure out what OAR stood for.

Shaun White wins gold. Dick pics for everybody!

After the 2014 Olympics I signed up at my local icehouse for a curling class. Way more difficult than I thought it was. And I only fell twice.

I do love watching me some Winter Olympic Games though. The cross-country skiing always fascinates me for some reason.

She's amazing, can't not watch her. Her victory run was insane.

Looks like Nathan Chen might have gotten things going the way he wants them to.

I expected this thread to be gigantic. Been watching as much as I can. I hope NBC loses their Olympic contract soon, hate their coverage. Next time around I am going to figure out how to VPN BBC or Canadian coverage so I don't have to deal with their streaming service.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but NBC has the Olympics through 2032. Not kidding.

Also I’m curious: does everyone hate Bodie Miller’s color commentary as much as I do?

Dammit I was afraid of that. Can't someone have a wardrobe malfunction and they lose it?! Ugh. Oh well VPN next time I guess.

Edit I agree that Bodie's commentary is crap but his partner likes to take digs at him for age, missed podium spots, etc and those are great!

I do not know what you're talking about. Who doesn't like drone with their skiing commentary?

The digs at Bodie have been great. I’ve wondered if he even recognizes those as digs.

I feel like when Bodie starts talking it’s the equivalent of a run-on sentence that is several paragraphs long and with no punctuation.

Thanks Bodie, you sure know a lot about watching folks from the edge of the podium.

That Czech woman who won the Super G was shocked to find out she won.

Virtue and Moir sounds like an awesome Canadian cop show.
