I miss Katarina Witt. That is all.
Or as someone on another site put it…she could interrogate me for the Stassi any day.02/16/2014 at 12:37 PM #41234
Yes….she most certainly had….ummmmm, talent.
Watching Fins/Canucks hockey at the moment.
(none of them have comparable talent to Katarina though)02/16/2014 at 12:39 PM #41235
The Canuck ice dancing lass is purty. Not Witt-caliber, but then again…who is.
I remember being a kid in my living room, cheering on Katarina over the American (who fell, to my delight – Debbie Thomas?)…to much family stink-eye. But hell, they already knew I weren’t right in the head.02/16/2014 at 12:41 PM #41236
LOL, yeah I just popped over the NBCSP and caught her.
She’s very cute, but her skirt is too long. Ditto with this blonde chick (sorry, don’t know who they are…Russkies?)02/16/2014 at 12:43 PM #41237
LMAO, the music they’re skating to…I can never hear that and not think of Mary Ann on Gilligan’s Island.
I’m not too right in the head either apparently.02/16/2014 at 12:45 PM #41238
Russkies, yup. Giggled re the commentator’s “flexible back” comment. Why they dominate the NYC strip clubs, no doubt.
The Canuck even has a fine porn star name – Tessa Virtue.02/16/2014 at 12:46 PM #41240
Sluttier dresses and less homosexual-ish music (come on, Putin!) would indeed help.02/16/2014 at 12:48 PM #41241

Johnny is almost as pretty as Tara.02/16/2014 at 12:53 PM #41243
I was trying to tell if it was a really gay dude, or a really butch lesbian. Thankfully, they put “Johnny” on the screen.02/16/2014 at 2:10 PM #41265
I think I might be a fan of Russkie curling.02/16/2014 at 4:56 PM #41317
For the record, the Canadian team was much better than the Americans in 1st place, not just better to look at.02/16/2014 at 6:13 PM #41347
As for Curling USA has s****d this time around. When I was living in upstate NY back in the late 80s the wife and I drove by the Schenectady curling club. She wanted to know what a curling club was. I proceeded to explain how curling is played and she swore I was feeding her a line of BS. Had to look it up in the encyclopedia when we got home to show her (no internet back then). She still didn’t believe it until I showed her during the winter Olympics. Men’s hockey is on a roll though, they can sit until the quarters start on Wed. Great overtime win against the Ruskkies.

I don’t know why it is, but men’s curling is unwatchable to me.
Put a broom in a chick’s hand and I’m captive.
Luge and skull are totally awesome, but yet again…I find myself looking forward to women’s bobsled.

Haha – women’s curling has the MILF factor, although there are some younger teams this year too. I get a kick out of the men’s teams, wearing their technical stretchy fabric shirts to show off their weight-trained biceps. It’s curling man! I played some when I first moved up here, and it can be fun if you have the right group of people competitively matched. As in, I played to win, while most others played to get to the beer. Don’t waste my time bro! While there is strategy and hand-eye coordination involved, I don’t think it belongs in the Olympics – it’s got more in common with golf than hockey. Give me short-track, hockey, slopestyle skiing was nuts, and I was REALLY into the biathlon for some reason.
And women’s skeleton. Talk about yer bods…02/17/2014 at 7:28 AM #41367
Ply, you’d have an insurrection on your hands if you tried to remove curling. I could do without ice dancing, never been into any of the ice skating. As other great olympic sports how about badminton and ping pong? There’s a few other in the summer games that could go.

Watching womens hockey. Those gals are GOOD! Kessel, the guy who scored the hat trick yesterday, has a sister on the womens team and she’s pretty good too! Looks like the women are on their way to the gold medal game. They can do no worst than silver.

A friend of mine asked if Costas had pink eye I told him he fell into a midget russian prostitute face first.02/18/2014 at 3:09 PM #41512
Dan Patrick was a vast improvement. I hate that Pink Eye Costas is back. I hear tell Scott Baio gave it to him…02/20/2014 at 5:15 AM #41817MrPlywoodParticipant
I cannot stand the opening and closing ceremonies narrated by the NBC crew as if the audience was made up of 5 year olds. It’s utterly ridiculous, and they do it every time. I far prefer the CBC broadcast, they know when to be quiet. When one of the athletes from a smaller contingent entered, Lauer interjected something to the effect of “Let’s just get this out of the way now, there’s no way he will get any kind of a medal at these games. ” Pathetic. STFU Matt.
