    meanwhile the Northeast got over 20" of snow on Saturday, and they're expecting just as much again today.

    Winter X-games were exciting as always. lookin forward to cheering on many of the same people again in the olympics

    Yeah Whistler and Van aren't getting anything close to winter weather this year. I hope it's cold enough to wear my Canada hoodie, toque and mitts when I get there!

    Can someone please explain to me curling? What is the point of it?

    At the completion of the end you want to have the rock that closest to the middle circle. Ideally you want multiple rocks that are all closer than any of your opponents rocks because you get points per rock. However, only the person with the closest rock gets any points and any of your rocks that are outside your opponents closest rock are worth nothing.

    Acuracy is the skillset. Nixy told you how points are counted...but it's not easy at all to not only control the speed of the stone, but it's curve..impacts, deflections etc etc...

    Looks easy...but it's anything but. (personal experience)

    Canadian 2010 Olympics equals Death!

    The moral of the story
    Canadians host the Olympics
    People die

    Luge rider...and someone actually posted VIDEO of that? That is totally disrespectful and not cool.
