I'm a fan. ;-D

I can't believe there is not one native Oregonian on the Olympic team this year. How is that even possible? :-S

Because you don't have an NHL team. You've got to get an NHL team, lure some Canadians down to play for your team then seduce them with your American women so that their kids are American.

American Woman, stay away from me.
Don't come hanging around my door
Don't want to see your shadow no more.

This is what the song is all about.

Yeehaw! I live on Vancouver Island and have been feeling the Olympic buzz for over a year. I don't have any tickets to events (there was a lottery for them), but I am going to be over there quite a bit just taking it all in, and of course getting rowdy at the bars.

This Coors Light commercial basically sums up my gameplan for the three weeks.

ha nice Coors Light commercial. A coors light sounds pretty good right about now.

Watching the local news. Apparently a member of the Georgian luge team was killed in practice today :,-(

The video is waaay worse than that. I can't find it online but I just saw it on the news. He leaves the track going around 140 km/h and hits a metal pole. Not a good way to kick off the games. :-t

Someone post the link when they find it? It sounds like a truly horrible crash, but my interest is peaked and I know the lame-brained news around here won't probably show it.

I just did the math, and 143 k/hr roughly = 90 miles/hour 8-o :-o

You're a goof. :-b

I was talking about the team as a whole. I can't believe there isn't a native Oregonian on the snowboarding team. Seriously? :-S
