Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony

Aside from figure skating of any sort, I'm totally in the tank for the Winter Olympics. I'm also not interested in the Opening and Closing crap, too North Koreanish for me but some may enjoy it, so here's a thread*.

Sure we don't have the Soviets to kick around anymore and the Scandis win way too much but I love the Winter Olympics because you see stuff you never see otherwise. When else do you get to see Bobsledding, Luge and the Biathlon. Hell they even compete in something called "Skeleton" because Luge just wasn't crazy enough. The best parts of course are Hockey and Curling.

The hockey tournament starts on Tuesday and in my never ending quest to lift you non-hockey philistines out of your football induced stupor, I'll be doing some Olympic Hockey blogging along with tmi3rd during the tournament. We'll begin sometime on Sunday with a preview of the teams and maybe a primer on the game in general for those of you who need it.

Unfortunately, there was some tragic news today before the games get underway. A member of the Georgia Luge Team was killed in a training crash.

*I know not everyone is a Winter Olympics or sports enthusiast but don't worry, this thread isn't at the expense of some more typical AoSHQ fare (whatever that is). Just relax, like a bus, there'll be another one along any minute.

No matter what happens in the next two weeks however, it will not top this great Olympic moment.


Thanks Obama!
