Sucked In By The Olympics

After that refreshing burst of activity.....nothing.  Erg.  I blame the Olympics.

After an impressive opening ceremony, and the tragic loss of luger Nodar Kumaritashvili of Georgia, the games have been most interesting.  As a side note, I wish someone would let Bob Costas know that every moment of silence is not a missed opportunity for his "stellar" commentary.  The most frustrating portion of the opening ceremony was his moment by moment narration/critique.

We watched biathlon over the weekend.  Unfortunately, the cameras stayed fixed almost entirely on the shooting platforms.  It seems that NBC has decided not to invest as much in the lesser known sports.

Snowcross was exciting as well.  Almost as good as some of the speed skating short track events.

And hockey is just getting started.  Canada's woman's hockey team just mauled the Swiss 10 to 1.  If they can figure out how to not pass through traffic, they are going to be tough to beat this year.

You didn't watch any freaking curling? What's wrong with you, man??

Oh noes! You found me!

And laugh if you must, but some of us enjoy watching the classic sport of curling.
