Default Winter Olympics Thread

Please keep the heavy drama about Sochi outta here! Let's talk about the athletes, the games, and other fun Olympic positivity. A Sochi Drama thread can be started elsewhere.

Loving the Opening Ceremonies so far. Canada's outfits are awesome, very reminiscent of mounties. As an RCMP daughter, I approve!

Sadly, I feel that USA'a outfits are lacking. They look like bad Christmas sweaters.

Germany's rainbow outfits are so... Germany.

The dances and spectacles have been beautiful.

I haven't seen any of the opening ceremonies hopefully they'll replay it tonight on TV.

The Olympics have inspired a little geographical journey. Each day or every couple of days (depending on what we do and how into each country we get) Hannah is going to pick a country to learn about lol. First one she picked is Australia. It's been a fun day. We watched an instructional video on how to play the didgeridoo, a power point presentation of different sights and animals, we printed out a map and labeled all the states and territories, colored the flag (and then Hannah wants to color a second flag for how it would look if SHE got to design it lol) and then I'll be looking for a coolvideo about the Great barrier reef (if anyone knows of one. let me know).

I'm hoping tonight she'll get to see someone from Australia compete in an event or at least be able to record one for her

Excited to see what country she'll pick next.

Sorry, this had almost ZERO to do with the Olympics lol

Well, for the record, I think Ralph Lauren should a) reimburse the USA for every hideous uniform ($1500! apiece!) and b) wear the monstrosity himself for the duration of the Olympics.

I heard the Olympics have added 12 new winter sports but what did they cut out to make room for these? I heard something about Pentathlon but that's a summer sport...

Do upside down toilet seats count as drama?

In fashion news, love everybody's skeleton helmets. ALL THE HELMETS.

Canada pretty much wins all the sports for best uniforms.

I found it so funny that before Canada came out there were a bunch of countries that had like 3 athletes a piece competing in the games and then Canada came out like "WE ARE THE GREAT WHITE NORTH. RAWR!!!" with our 200 athletes.

I loved the part that was themed after the night sky. So pretty with all of the skaters decked out in lights. Now if only the media could get light bulbs, door knobs and lobby floors. Lol.

You should type more

Not sure about rewatching anything, but if you're a cable subscriber you can log in and watch streaming on NBC.com.

If not you can get a ISP masker and watch the BBC's free streaming of the events.

Opening ceremonies were awesome, even the slight ring fail...



And hooray to Mark McMorris for snagging our first medal! We Are Winter, etc.
