So, what with matharon runners in mortal danger from pollution, transport in chaos, and political uprising under the glare of the international spotlight - all set against the backdrop of an expansionist, imperialist authoritarian state trying to look cute and fuzzy for two weeks - this is shaping up to the most
entertaining Olympics in years.

I can't wait. =)

I've already told you I don't particularly care about that issue. There's not much we can do to stop a nukesub from going through there.

Surface ships, on the other hand...

Hey, I remember when Canada got a medal in the real olympics. But it turned out the guy was on drugs. :(

Stoned snowboarder? Steriod sprinter?

Steroid sprinter.

There wasn't one two years ago. I know that 'cause it's this year and every 4 years. You were 21st last time.

I bet some tibetan monks will set themselves on fire with the olympic torch... now that would be a powerful symbol...

Winter Olympics don't count. Only about 20 countries have winters.

The Winter Olympics are a joke the rest of the world tells at the expense of Canada and Sweden.

I like the winter Olympics!
Curling for the win :)

Ice hockey, bob-sled and ski jumping aren't so bad, either. ;)

But seriously. Ice dancing? Winter Biathlon? Moguls? Or the stoners-doing-flips-on-a-skateboard X-games awfulness of Snowboarding?

WAAAY too much of all Olympic competition - summer and winter - is relevant only once out of four years because there's some nationalist marketing in the form of a gold medal attached to it. Leading to the dreary Western billion dollar sports 'science' (aka steroid) industries and the Chinese 'trained from birth' style jingoist desperation for medals.

If a sport is good, let it stand on its own merits - I'll watch Curling anytime - instead of being propped up by this political gravy train of former princes and despots that is the Olympic movement.

Canada, eh? What can ya do aboot it?

I thought for sure that the Winter Olympics were the Olympics.

I predict lots of medal-podium protests, just like 68 all over again.

Curling is great. And it's a bonus that the UK (well... Scotland) is good at it.

20-03-2008, 09:08:25
that would be way more effective than a straight boycott

I look forward to the report we get every year about how many condoms they get through in the Olympic village. It's basically like a mass orgy the whole time by the sounds of it.

Well 95% of all the athletes get to compete once for 30 minutes and are then done for the whole two weeks. It's what any group of ten thousand extremely fit, testosterone fueled young people would get up to. =D

This is just one of the many, many worthy and just reasons the yanks have for wanting to kick yer asses. :cute:

I always learn so much new stuff at Counterglow.

So is "hockey" hockey? Or is "hockey" field hockey?

Hockey is hockey. It's played on grass. Well. Fake grass.
