Default Favorite olympic moments?

By far, my favorite moments of the Olympics this year are the snowboarders that sing with their iPods on prior to (and during) their runs. I'm serious.

My second is the story of the men's short form figure skating--specifically, the story that nailing the basics is worth more than nailing a quad and that those that nail the quad disagree.

Haven't watched much at all, but was impressed with 23 yo Torah Bright's gold - almost a local girl, living about 1 hour away from here.

Yeah, for me snowboarders are a pleasure to watch - there is still an irreverence, fun and enthousiasm about them that seems to have disappeared from so many other sports. Except for skeleton-ers and lugers - they are cool too. Crazy, but cool.

How about the cross-country skier - fell in a ditch, broke four ribs, had a pneumothorax, and the next day went through two heats and skied to a bronze medal in the final. Wow.

The person that says "reaady" before the speed skaters start. Reaady. I can't stop saying it. Reaady.

Same day. WOW indeed.

Jon, we had the same experience here - we kept repeating his reaady. Then he seems to fall asleep for four seconds, startles himself awake and pulls the trigger. He is narcoleptic, I'm sure.

He also seems to adjust the duration of the word for the length of the track. Reaady for long track speed skaters is much longer than reaady for short track speed skaters. A poet.

Canada vs. USA in men's hockey. Hoping there is another game in teh medal round (for the gold).

Same end result would be satisfactory for me

Truly best is my 3.5 year old daughters interest in virtually all the events. "I want to do that too" aerial skiing and snowboard cross. My wife cringes at trips to the ER from just the thought.

Not a favourite moment, just a couple observations about hockey, which I normally never watch but what the heck, it's the Olympics, so...

1. The US (men's) goalie is outstanding.

2. It's mostly a spitting contest. It should be called horkey.

Kiss and cry. It's a loose analogy if there is one at all.

Am not a hockeyfan normally, but for the first time ever, my wife and I watched a game. And what a game...7-3.
And the women sledders: Gold and silver.
And Clara Hughes - another bronze and the ONLY person EVER to win both Summer and Winter Olympic medals.
Well done, small country of mine.

On a percapita basis we're doing great medal wise. And the Norwegians... ? They have what.. 5 million people or something and gobs of medals..

There was another bronze silver in short track you forgot to mention Bas.

Another gold for Aus - Lasila leaping from a ski jump, twisting three times in the air, landing on her feet. Pretty cool.

I chuckle seeing the hay bales sticking out a bit from under the rainsoaked snow on Cypress.

Olympic tip: If you want to increase the odds that you'll beat the person next to you in snowboard cross or ski cross, try wearing lycra for your outfit before your competition decides to.

That was one of the most exciting and high-level hockey games-sporting events, for that matter- that I've ever seen.

Congrats to the Canucks. We'll get ya in 2014!

John, the guy who was head of the Van. Olym. Cmtt., John Furlong, is Irish. He's been in Can for a long time. Just thought you might like that, you being Irish and everything.

There were things I learned watching Olympics that I never knew, not being a sport fan ordinarily.
Canada doesn't call curlers, "curlers." Apparently they are called "rock stars."
Half the players on the US hockey team were Canadian.
I think it should be renamed "horkey" because of all the spitting involved.

All the helium moose and giant beavers and Mounties on rolling carts were a bit over le top. I thought Michael Buble was great though.

Where was Celine? She never showed up.

Thank god she didn't.
The whole mountie thing? Great "poking fun at ourselves" theme - right from the start with the "faulty hydraulics" revisited. Everything considered "Canadian" was presented with tongue firmly planted in cheek. Fun party.
