Just watching the preview. Cannot wait for this. A bunch of mentally dangerous sports. Pure drama. I will even watch the figure skating, (let’s be honest how the hell do they do that), and the curling. Bring it on!

I find the olympics fascinating. Millions of people go bonkers over sports that they have no interest in for the next 4 years. This is not a criticism as I do it too.

I don't know if Snow Kayaking is at the Winter Olympics, but it should be. I want to do it.

Am I the only one calling bullshit on short track racing video reviews when a skater goes down and gets through still?

Snowboarding is pretty amazing to watch. The style boarding just now was incredible.

Really enjoyed the slopstyle snowboarding last night (and the qualifying before that). They make it look so easy, it's insane. Nice smash-and-grab by the American kid as well.

Watching men's half pipe right now, which is probably a replay of earlier in the day. Damn that Japanese dude went down hard :dread:

Watching it now, the final. These guys are truly amazing! Watched some of pairs figure skating earlier and that was incredible too.

Someone showed up to the womens hockey game (United Korea V. Japan) dressed as Kim Jong Un...

Didn't he get chucked out of the games already? Or are there more?

Kick him out for what? It's not like he's actually making fun of anyone.

In the video I saw of him they just ushered him back to his seat because he showed them he had a ticket.

Never mind, they were just tossed out of the opening ceremony.

Shame that the time difference makes a lot of this awkward to watch. You pretty much have to tune in at midnight to start watching stuff, apart from the highlights show. Enjoyed the men's downhill and snowboarding last night though. Caught a bit of the skeleton, never really as good as you think it's going to be though.

Shaun White was amazing, what a way to end your career. Feel sorry for Hirano, Beijing might be his best chance though.

Has any of that crazy gooseberry fool been on yet when they race down a course in groups of five, i think snowboard cross or something. I enjoy that. Also is there a version with skis? or do they only use boards?

Ladies' is tonight.
