Anybody going to watch?
I'm looking forward to hockey and curling
ive got the opening ceremony on tv now.. quite spectacular actually! the skier formation thing has to be the highlight of it so far! absolutely amazing!
oo wow big flying sun and a big flying moon on now...
I LOVE the winter olympics.
WOW!! what an opening ceremony!! spectacular stuff, topped off with a bit of pavarotti to finish! :clap: the italians have got style! if the events are as spectacular as the opening ceremony everyone watching will be in for a treat!
Ditto here. Not really interested in anything except for those, mainly the hockey. Hopefully our men and women can repeat again.
For me it'll be the various bobsleigh / luge / skeleton events and some of the ski-ing, probably the downhill and the ski jumping.
I like a bit of danger provided I'm sat on a nice comfy sofa watching someone else doing the dangerous stuff.
I enjoy watching the Winter Olympics, I just can't see who in their right mind would want to do the skeleton and the luge though!! Anyway, I will only see a week of it as I'm off snowboarding in Wengen, Switzerland next Saturday and I can't wait!!
I was a bit flummoxed by the waltxing cow bit in the opening ceremony mind!!!!
But I shall be watching most of it. Ian is now convinced I got laryngitis on purpose so I could stay home and watch teh Games. Trouble is, I can't shout at him now... :-(
The opening ceremony was pretty good but I'm not sure if I'll be watching anymore of it. I just like watching ice skating to see if anybody falls!
The only reason why anyone watches Dancing on Ice...
I love the Ice Hockey and the Downhill and Bobsleigh have to be the best for me:woo
I love watching the olympics, even the rubbish ice-skaters/ skiers/bobsleighers are amazing!!
havent we managed two spectacular wipeouts and subsequent last places today?
Go team GB
Well , at least they've had a go!
My favourite opening ceremony was in Lillehammer in 1994. There were all these little kids dressed as gnomes and trolls popping up out of the snow and having snowball fights and......
I guess maybe you had to see it to appreciate it. I thought it was cute anyway.
Keep meaning to watch but keep missing all the interesting stuff. Downhill giant half-pipe mogul slalom doesn't do it for me. Want to watch the speed stuff on skeletons and luges.
Oooooooooooouch!!!! Horrendous fall by the chinese skater, why do they keep showing it again and again!!
Snowboarding was great though, i was on holiday there couple of years ago, ahhh, the free shots at the Guiness bar......(the only bar in town!!!!!! - no literally, it was the only bar there! )
4 weeks till my boarding holiday
OUUUUCCCHHHH!!! What a tiger to get up and continue!
And I'd never seen boarding before - wow! Wish I wasn't too old and decrepit (with crepitus!) to take it up!
i wanna go at that luge!! awesome
I love the winter olympics and am getting totally addicted to it. Can't stand the summer olympics though, that is just two weeks of absolute tedium as far as I am concerned.
Did you know that you have to be certifiably insane before they let you do that event?
Honest, hehehe ;-)
