And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I know we're in 2nd place---even after losing hockey and curling

    The kids watched opening ceremonies and quickly lost interest. I've watched very little.

    Ha. Which was more damaging to Canadian national pride?

    Watched some of the speed skating and skiing. Plus snowboarding. For a Floridian it's kinda foreign.

    The sprint skating relays are.... odd

    I've been focused mostly on the skiing. It seems like every time I turn it on, there is figure skating.

    My wife likes the figure skating, during which I catch up on my reading. I'll watch a bit of the skiing and snowboarding, and I like the ski jumping and some of the skeleton and sled events. Watching curling reminds me of going down to the laundromat to watch clothes dry. It's slow-motion bocce on ice. Even shuffleboard is more interesting.

    I haven’t watched at all. I really like the sled events and love the skiing (x-country too) but NBC seems to only show fluffy backstory **** and figure skating.

    And Gary Bettman single-handedly ruined the single greatest sports’s tournament in the world.

    Watched a fair amount--like it all but especially skiing and snowboarding events--but NBC's coverage sucked.

    watched the women's hockey gold medal game live......up until 3am


    that was the only thing that truly held my interest; i had a former student playing (her 3rd olympics), which was cool

    Watched some. Missed the beginning of the opening and closing ceremonies. Missed the women's hockey and some other events we did well in. Stuck mostly to downhill events and some skating, and biathlon.

    I barely watched any. I watched the Nordic Biathlon at Sport Clips and some bob sledding at home.

    The bob sledding course was indoors. That's not right.
