    Default Olympics - Sochi 2014

    I thought I would kick things off with a few pieces on Shani Davis.

    The Olympics have begun. Anyone watching? I'd love to pick up the old curling debate.

    I've been watching somewhat. LOVED the Men's Arials and the Luge. Curling.... not so much. I watched where they explained it but I still don't get it. Then again some people say Ice Dancing shouldn't be a sport either.

    +Johnny Weir, who isn't even competing this time around.
    +Ice Dancing - congrats to Meryl Davis and Charlie White. I even got a virtual autograph from them on Twitter.
    +can't wait for the women's ice skating and the teams. The men's competition lost a lot when Evgeni Plushenko had to withdraw, but the Japanese winner was fierce.
    +the ski sports have been wonderful to watch as have the snowboarding events (makes me want to go skiing again even though I'm nowhere near good and the same for ice skating, which I'm a bit better at.)
    +it's fun being rooting for the USA, but I do find that in some events I'm rooting for the Russians to just take it home since they're at home.

    I like how much coverage NBC is giving the Olympics. I'm not 100% thrilled about how they're covering it but, as they paid $775 million for the privilege, you can't watch it any other way in the USA.

    Congrats Canada!

    It's not just well-deserved, it's like a Canadian birthright.

    Alas, I guess that means we have to keep this little bastard:
