    :clap: Can't wait!

    Winter Olympics don't excite me as much as the Summer games do, but these athletes deserve our respect as well. ^_^

    Who else is gonna watch? :woot::flower:

    Never been much of a figure skating fan. Ever. I never understood the outfits.

    I love speed skating. They go so fast! :lol:

    After thinking about it.... I only watch one sport from each olympic season.

    Gymnastics in Summer.

    Figure Skating in Winter.

    Weird. I usually just watch the other sports just to pass time before those two sport come on.

    Yay! Another Oksana & Maxim fan! I really hope Maxim's in good shape for the games, because they've had such a rocky season this year.

    I personally am upset that Evgeni Plushenko has chosen to participate in this year's Olympics. He already had his moment of glory. Let someone else have theirs. :judge:
    Had he not entered the competition, this would've been Jeremy Abbott's year, or Evan L's year, or Nobunari Oda's, or some other young talent. Now they can only hope for silver at best. :rolleyes:

    sorry but glory does not have 'moments', you go all the way until you can't perform anymore. imagine if someone told Jordan "you've already had your moment MJ!" after his third ring? :lol:

    Finland too, like always, but not likely :(^_^
    Medal would be fine.

    It's too bad that we have +10 hours so looks like most of events are middle of the night. I wonder if I could skip sleeping and sleep after work but I guess I would be zombie then. Well, I need to figure out something, sports is better live. And I bought mascot, Quatchi, already!

    I'm in.
