winter olympics, anyone?

i've been watching every day so far (two whole days, OMG!! lol). we watched the opening ceremonies on friday as well...spectacular, even with the little glitch at the end!

right now nordic combined long jump is on...it's pretty cool to watch, but personally my favorite nordic skiing event is the biathalon (or the "norwegian drive-by" as we like to call it, lol).

so what is your favorite event? what are you most looking forward to watching? any favorite athletes or people/events you're hoping for a gold for your country? (i realize most of us are from the US or canada, but there are a few ladies from other places too.)

i personally am awaiting the beginning of figure skating tonight, although i very much enjoy watching most of the events. especially hockey, lol. we had fun watching the x games a couple weeks ago too, so i enjoy a lot of the skiing and snowboarding events.

Jen, are you from the Lower Mainland? Or somewhere in BC? I live in Burnaby. :) I noticed that the Fin-Blr game wasn't sold out yet a few days ago, but I didn't bother trying to get tickets because I wanted to at least be able to cheer for Canada! LOL. But I guess it would still be cool to go to any Olympic event. DH is going to the Czech vs Slovak game on Wednesday with his brother. I was slightly annoyed because I was excited about the Olympics all along and he hasn't been. Oh well!

Ooooh you totally should! It wouldn't be over the top - it's crazy how many people here are decked out in red, wearing Team Canada gear, draped in flags, wearing Maple leaf tattoos.... it's awesome! I love it! I'm not sure if it's just here in Vancouver, maybe it's going on all over Canada, but even so it's pretty cool. :)

I have been watching but with the time difference it is hard to catch it live.
I love the Biathlon!!! My fav athlete Magdalena Neuer got silver in teh 7.5km Norwegian drive by sprint. (love that nick name for it)

Ski jumping was on a lot. Ohhh right now ice skating!!!
