Haven't seen any post about this. The youth of the world gathers to compete. We have been watching every night.
I had a season pass to Aspen Mountain hanging around my neack for two years in the 80's and i came to appreciate good skiers. Nice to see the kids of today at their best.

    It's pretty amazing!  My 11 year old daughter asked last night if she "had" to watch with us. Um, yea. you do...this only happens once every four years and these are the best our country has to offer in their respective sports. I get that someone in Korea is not hearing me cheer for them but damn if I'm not still going to cheer...

    I have always enjoyed watching and supporting our athletes. I still feel a great sense of pride for those competing representing our country. 

    If you want to bomb me send it to Tony @0patience :D

    Snowboarding half pipe is very exciting to watch. Also enjoy the luge (spelling) and downhill skiing.

    Is Jamaica in the Bobsled event? I prefer the timed events over the judged events.

    There's a Jamaican Female team this year!

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.

    I'm happy y'all are enjoying it all but I don't want to watch. I'm fast forwarding through any of it I can. And, so much politics involved. The media is spinning hard like those ice skaters do. The athletes are politicizing too. Be glad when it's over.

    We can not watch it together tonight on the vHerf, @Bob_Luken.
    I'll gladly bomb you Tuesday for an Opus today.

    I'm glad I wasn't the only one who noticed the gold medal winning snowboarder drag the American flag on the ground and inadvertantly step on it.  Social medai wents nuts, as it should.

    NBC, it is official. The worst olympics coverage in history.
    What do you expect, their highest rated show is "the view"

    He stated that it was an accident.  At the same time it is OK for NFL players to not stand for the National Anthem which is part of displaying our flag?

    I'm old school whe it comes to the flag. I don't think the athletes need to be wearing it as a cape during victory celebrations or otherwise disregarding "the code" but it has become a tradition. And now you say those pot-head snowboarders are dragging it around? It keeps getting worser and worser.

    This is exactly why I haven't tuned in. Sick and tired of mainstream, brain dead sports jocks who get paid millions of dollars while our troops risk their lives and make 5 figures. To hell with them. Ok...I've got it out of my system. Now back to your regularly scheduled program.

    Just learned that a gold medal earns $35,700 and a bronze gets $15,000 and a silver is somewhere in between.

    And any US winners will have to pay taxes on those bonuses and in the value of any medals they bring back.

    Sadly it has been a poor showing for Team USA so far.
