More like an advert for Italian bikes and cars. Just get on with the bloody games!!
Hells teeth, it's Yoko bloody Ono.
Obviously now, anything worth watching on TV will be replaced by Snow..
Cochise, Skating on thin ice.....
Hay I remember Eddie the Eagle. I shall be watching.
Yeaa...me too. Those were the glory days for the UK. I don't have much interest in any of the "sports" being contested. Now if they had sno-blowing or attempting to go 200' to the mailbox and getting back to the house w/o breaking your a55....that I would watch!
Reports indicate we may get a foot tomorrow, Sleddin ed
Rumours are the UK has a great curling-team!
Don't forget to wipe your feet in advance; start brushing the floor, Edsky LOL
Winterolympics-$minterolympics...it's all about the $$$ -as always
Hey, give me my sledge & start yodel..err..rodelling, boys
Was impressed with the opening ceremonies. I want one of them Mongolian hats!
Yeah Wild one,
Just what you need in So Cal to keep the snow off your head!
Blocking Mongo hats in Cape Hatteras, Topless ed
Right on slammer,
Word is that the "Curlers" stopped by Cochise's abode to give him a shampoo and a set.....all 4 hairs!!
Having had a few horses and cows a while back taught me the merits of wiping one's feet.
It's the thrill of Victory and the agony of De Feet, Boo Hoo ed
First Gold goes to Germany.
Hay it can get down to the 30's at night, now for us S. CA. boys that be cold, plus I hear they might be worth a bloody fortune.
I dig the curling, I think the sweepers are great, I got Mrs. Wildman watching so she can get some ideas on how to make that job go quicker.
The Luge should be made into a contact sport. Let them go down a big hill all at once. Thats the way we did it when I was a kid. Better yet, erect a chainlink fence at the bottom of the hill w/a jagged 5' hole in it. Whoever makes it thru 1st wins. We never lost more than 3 or 4 sledders in any one year.
Battered but not bowed, Scratched up ed
I occasionally wear my old ex-boyfriend's head around...just to remember good ol' days. And I live in Ohio.
Head full of junk in Jerusalem, sentimental Nat
Man, other than the dead-guy head she keeps wearing around - that Nat sure is looking GOOD!
I think that all figure skaters should be forced to wear Hockey style helmets just in case of.....you know!
Concerned in Tunsia, Worried ed
Hay a new winter Olympics games sport. Demolition derby on snow.
I think someone over there must be reading this thread. I happened to catch a bit of the Cross Country Skiing. One of the guys took a dive and brought 4 or 5 others down w/him. Best part of the whole race!!
Proposed Competition: Fencing Ski Jumpers
Now...if they could set up 2 ski jumps facing each other ...when the opposing jumpers hit their peak they could maybe do a little parry and thrust!
Forgetting the wimpy stuff, Dashing ed
yes you are correct the UK's womans curling team are the best in the world (i think ever) i think i've heard all the jokes about mops, housewives sweeping the floor, and irons too. yawn, they'll probably win again this time
OK, maybe they were abit lucky to win last time but i can't remember seeing any snow here in England. the curling team are from Scotland. if the Olympics were based around rain we might do abit better
I'm sure the lady curlers here in Canada would have a lot to say about that.
the bit you quoted i made up
Hah...the lady curlers from Italy hone their skills by playing Bocce prior to the competition. They smoke Perodis, imbibe copious amts. of Grappa, and use lots of swear words so don't get too close.
Rooting for the Red, White, and Green, Torino ed
so when is the women's curling?
Just as soon as they remove the last batch of chocolate chip cookies out of the oven!
Full sched for mens and womens,
i have absolutely no idea what you're on about
so it's already been going on for 3 days or was the 13th the first day on day 3 of the olympics why didn't anyone say anything?
i think the GB team won their last match, but i'm not sure, it all looks abit complicated to me. i think Canada lost to Sweden
i just looked it up and the Swedes are the favourites to win. i still think the GB team will win though.
the Brits used a "high-tech broom" in training. "Basically, it was a stopwatch on a brush". however, "it's not a magic broom, unfortunately" you can read all about right here.
