My main events are hockey, skiing, curling, and all the bobsled/luge/skeleton events. I'll probably fit some speed skating in, too. I'd especially encourage anyone who likes hockey to watch the women's hockey matches, too. I find it to be every bit as exciting as the men's games.

Women's Hockey.

Apparently, the American team dislikes the Canadians so much that they are almost promising a fight during the game.

It's been a rough lead up in competitions. Team USA pretty much got their butts handed to them by Canada in multiple games over several months this fall. I think they finally got a win in December. There's a lot of rookies on the team this year and most of the old veteran leadership is gone. But they have seemed to be playing better lately and the roster has shifted slightly from this fall, so we'll see.

Who's getting up at 3am tonight to watch the women's match between USA & Finland?

I love curling. There's a club in our area that does intro nights sometimes that I will go to someday.

Are you talking about the polar bear swim where people get really drunk on New Year's Eve and go swimming in a frigid ocean on New Year's Day? I think that's a demonstration sport this year with all the free flowing vodka in Sochi. Or are you talking about actual polar bears invading the waters around the resort. That's probably going a demonstration event this year too.

I've certainly taken a few potshots at Russia in the run-up to these Olympics, both as jokes and some more seriously (seriously, WHY ARE THERE CAMERAS IN THE SHOWERS?!?!) but when the headlines read "Russia Can't Get Through the Opening Ceremony Without Screwing Up" I understand why they get defensive and rail against Western bias.

I'm waiting for the women's (over 18) nude figure skating. So I'm a warthog -- I know that, but the concept is intriguing.

I'm already a fool, so why not watch the Olympics? I had a car called a Beetle that ran only when it chose, but it wasn't a band. The band was better. I'd rather watch some guy skiing down a cliff at 120 kph.

I think you need the special "Olympics" package from your cable company.

Sing.
Sing a song.
Sing out loud, sing out strong.
Sing of good things, not bad.
Sing of happy, not sad.
Sing.
Sing a song.
Make it simple to last your whole life long.
Don´t worry that it´s not good enough for anyone else to hear.
Just sing.
Sing a song.
