I thought the opening ceremonies were awesome. A great start to hopefully another great games. Best of luck to all the athletes no matter what flag they followed into the stadium......... :rock:
Convincing my family to not rush to shit on Russia just because all the reporters are was pretty difficult... But the display they put on for the games was pretty good at bringing some "Holy shit!" to the room.

Watched the (incredibly Americo-centric) NBC re-airing later tonight with the family. We were all pretty impressed.

They did a good job. I think I saw Putin smile. May have been a stray pixel or something.


Eeeewwwwwwww....NBC coverage of the Olympics..... PDT_Armataz_01_32

Poor guy, had to watch the ghetto Olympic broadcast.

That's almost as bad as their coverage of the NHL.... :roll:


You say that like NBC was worse.........than FOX!

Neither of them cover sporting events near as well as the CBC does.

Nothing is as bad as Americans broadcasting a hockey game.

It's no wonder hockey is 5th in popularity.


I can watch the Olympics in Slovak, German, French, BBC, and I finally got
a Canadian VPN sorted out, so I can watch CBC too.

Will not watch one minute of NBC.

Agreed. CBC didn't cut away every 10 minutes to look at Canadian athletes taking pictures of the event with their smartphones. Actually got to see every country on that online broadcast. Probably like 10 more seconds devoted to Canada when they walked out, that's it.

The Americans whining too, when the 1917 revolution bit started, :roll:

Though the guys at CBC did say "They are obviously not going to include some things." Did we include residential schools? Silly expectations.

I watched and watched for the Vietnam War part of the Salt lake City ceremonies but ... nothing.

Why not just take figure skating out, this exhibition of athleticism has lost all credibility as being a sport.

I don't doubt that figure skating is extremely athletic but all of the "judged" events are a bit dodgy. Figure skating is as corrupt as the IOC itself is.

7 drug tests on Canadian figure skaters including one that happened 2 hours before a girl's competition, the most tests to date on any other group of athletes.

It's figure skating, there has to be a judging scandal or it just wouldn't be figure skating. I've watched a fair bit of the team competition and there hasn't been anything glaring as far as scores go. Just let the athletes do their job and quite the political BS journalists.
