Everything you need to know.

Yeah, so since the games start on Friday, I figured now is as good a time as any to make a discussion thread. Anything to do with the Olympics is free to be discussed here.

(Let's go USA!)

I love the olympics- they are so awesome. One thing I've heard though-NBC will, instead of earning money, they will LOSE money. Looks like NBC has a crappy January- the whole Conan and Leno thing, and now this.
Nice. I hope accidents occur.

I wonder if this thread will be stickied?

I didn't mean anything fatal, just "fun to watch" accidents.
There's already some grim news coming from the Olympics.

21 year-old Georgian luger Nador Kumaritashvili died in a high speed crash while training for the Olympics today.
Quote
Kumaritashvili struck the inside wall of the track on the final turn. His body immediately went airborne and cleared the ice-coated concrete wall along the left side of the sliding surface. His sled remained in the track, and it appeared his helmet visor skidded down the ice.

We should all take a moment for remembering Nador Kumaritashvili.

Message of the week: I'm going to be inactive, except for the Third Earth story posts. So I'll be on here once a week.

World's saga is on the fourth chapter.
Game progress is still on chapter one.
Character progress: 11 of 18.
Bug fixing: Initiated.
Pretty sad what happened to that guy (I don't care about his name).

I still don't get why everyone in my country is excited that they get to host some sport festival.

So you pretty much caused him to die. Way to go.

This is what you get when you try to be 'funny' (and failing hard at that) by 'hoping accidents happen'. Way to go and way to make a fool out of yourself, mariofan1000. :|

Well, Nodar Kumaritashvili died. A tragic begin of the Olympic Wintergames. WHAT WERE THOSE CONCRETE PILLARS DOING THERE!? Couldn't they think of putting the wall up there BEFORE somebody had to die? -_-
Props to the Georgian equipe, that they're staying in Vancouver. They should, in honour of their team mate.

On a happier note, the first (and certainly not the last {B)) Dutch golden medal is in. Sven Kramer (yeah Dutch site), ftw. He proves, once again, that he's the best at the 5 km., and trust me: he will win at the 10 km. too (or maybe Bob de Jong, if he does the 10 km. too).
Sorry, I'll really only follow skating. :P

--------> Don't follow "Find Roy's Dignity", my hack. Because it's pretty outdated. <--------
...so anyway...

Pretty happy to see that Wayne Gretzky got to light the torch. He deserved to do it. I find it quite funny though how the fourth part of the cauldron didn't raise with the rest - looks like someone will be losing a job.

Let's hope for some great Olympics this year.

Some Iranian guy called said that our "stupid, white, Canadian architects" or whatever who designed the course were idiots. Meh.

So just accidents that could leave the person as a vegetable then?


Skiing is so damn cool :D

And the states have first place for males and females? I think females, cant remember. But thats only so far. This is almost as exciting as the tour de france :D

This thread isn't about griping at mariofan1000. It's quite clear from this post and this post that he did not mean it the way you all take it. So shut up about him and talk about the Olympics! >.<
(I had to say that.)


More on topic: The sheer speed of the different events is amazing. (But then again, I keep misreading kilometers/hour as miles/hour, so....)

Also, I feel for Nodar Kumaritashvil's death.
My mom and brother headed up to Vancouver to stay with my grandparents and go to the Olympics. They have tickets for 3 events, but I can't remember them off the top of my head.

Another cool fact is that one of my cousins got to carry the Olympic torch. There's even a picture to prove it! I'm amazed that he was able too carry it, it's probably a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence.

Personally, I haven't been keeping up with the Olympics a lot. I watched part of the opening ceremonies, but not much other than that.
