You can keep Mr. Orange Bro. I'll have these guys instead:

I'm fairly sure I watched some of everything, no joke. Although I lost interest in curling pretty fast. Too slow paced for me.
Some of those athletes I KNOW I recognize their names (i.e. Kramer) but too many names in and out my ears these past two weeks have me not be able to connect them with their sports.

One day Sven Kramer will be known as Sven Kramer and not Sidney Crosby.

And look! Aren't they cute?
1st-Mar-2010 10:44 pm (UTC)
Agreed, they're adorable!

I didn't watch any because I live in the US and NBC's exclusive coverage sucked *ass*. Time delays of three hours for an event *in my time zone* are unacceptable, and it really interfered with my interacting online with everyone else I know who was watching it in real time. NBC even made Canada block their coverage for people in the US.

I'm still angry about this.

I couldn't watch it. There were so many commercials it drove me crazy. The things I tried to watch were 5 minutes of commercials, then one ski jump and then another five minutes of commercials. So I gave up on it pretty quickly.

Even though I live in the U.S., I have Canadian satellite. Thank God for that, or I wouldn't have been able to watch much of it at all.

I ONLY know of Apollo because of Dancing With the Stars.

The 2010 Olympics ROCKED! Canada kicked ass.

Considering the Beijing Olympics held my attention for all of three seconds, I think this Olympics was much better. But then again, I got kind of into the speed skating and curling this year waayyyyy too much.

I find it interesting that not everyone knows about Kim Yu-Na. I guess in the circles I run in she just gets talked about a TON. (Makes sense, really.)
