The 2010 Winter Games begin Friday, February 12, 2010
Will you be watching?
Yes, I will. For five days in the second week I will be watching it from Vancouver even. 3 events LIVE from in the STADIUM!
Well, two in a stadium in Van and one in the open air in Whistler.
What is this 2010 Olympics thing anyway?
Welp at least they are holding the Winter Olympics in a country
where it’s always winter
Not this year it's not
2010 Olympics are a bust!
Jeebus Dood climate change ruined the Oylmpics! ha ha Hah!
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!
I'll watch some of it. Probably miss most of it for one reason or another.
There seems to some xtra reasons to watch this year.
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)
Ouch! Did anyone see the video of the Georgian skeleton-rider hittin' that steel post after the last turn??!?
Rest in Peace, dude.
Canadian 2010 Olympics equals Death!
The moral of the story
Canadians host the Olympics
Luge rider...and someone actually posted VIDEO of that? That is totally disrespectful and not cool.
Death at the 2010 Olympics
He got seriously ruined
I hear they have cancelled all events on that track
Is that true? If so that’s wimpy!
