Ah, the Winter Olympics

Here are the things i like about the Winter Olympics:

  • Hockey
  • Speed Skating
  • … uh….

For things I don’t like about the Winter Olympics, let’s start with: “Women are too fragile for ski jumping“, add a dash of “it’s just a bunch of boring Northern Europeans” (plus the damn Norwegians and Germans seem to win everything, while my Swedish pals go home nearly emptyhanded—though, kudos on the hockey upset…). Then add the fact too many of the events (including the signature figure skating and all the new “EXTREME” thingies) are judged events rather than real feats of competition. Give me wrestling, basketball, races. How many times can you watch someone do a 1080° jump in the half pipe and still be interested?
