    Winter Olympics are awesome. I don't know why for the life of me they are holding them at that terrible mountain in Korea, but oh well. I've been loving the snowboarding slopestyle - Hockey is always a good time, too.

    One of the grandest benefits of the enlightenment was the realization that our moral sense must be based on the welfare of living individuals, not on their immortal souls. Honest and passionate folks can strongly disagree regarding spiritual matters, so it's imperative that we not allow such considerations to infringe on the real happiness of real people.

    The Winter Olympics in its entirety should be shit-canned except the event where they ski and shoot (biathlon?). Pretty much all of the Summer Olympics should be shit-canned too, except track and field events and wrestling. You could talk me into keeping the freestyle events of swimming, but only because I'm a softy.

    It's a crappy mountain, but I love the Winter Olympics. I wish the US were up to par on the speed skating, an old standby where the US has fallen off the deep end.

    Lol, you like wresting. That and house jumping are the worst summer Olympic sports.

    Our speed skating uniforms are horrible. Our skaters are following suit.

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Well we still have Shaun White, so we make up a bit there. Also, we have already had a couple gold medals courtesy of tiny snowboarders. It's pretty impressive.

    Watched Red Gerard's slopestyle run three times, because they said he was going to tap his nose, which would drive the judges crazy. I kept waiting for this:

    Without the snowboarders, we'd have almost nothing to show for this Olympics. I remember Eric Heiden and Beth Heiden and others delivering so often. It's disappointing that we can keep up with the Dutch and Norwegians.

    That Men's Halfpipe final was one of the most exciting Olympic moments in memory. Fantastic moment.

    Bummer of an end to the US/Slovenia hockey game. US up 2-0 starting the third, only to lose 3-2 in overtime.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    It was great to watch. There was no way White was not going to win with that last run. It was inevitable.

    Even the qualifying runs were awesome.

    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    And he's not Russian. He's an Athlete of Russia. There's a difference.

    Why would you need to drug for curling? Did somebody spike his beer or vodka?

    The announcer was hilarious. It sounded like he couldn't believe he had to call that run but was doing it because that's what the job called for.

    "Trying to show the judges that she can ski this half-pipe clean..."
    "Trying to show that the she has a little style at the bottom..."



    And the Hungarians said they didn't know how bad she was until she got to the Olympics. LOL

    That's what the Olympics are all about! Being polite to people who don't deserve it!


    I think the big downside to this is if she's a total A-hole in her regular life and goes on to brag on future chairlifts to captive audiences that she is an Olympic skier.

    Real nice work by UnderArmor with the long-track speed skating unis. Very flattering.
