Any other junkies out there? This is the moment to be experts on sports you only care about every four years. Let's go, Team USA (and all the rest)!

It is unfortunate that these games are having to deal with COVID, as well as all the political issues surrounding China. I hope the athletes have a great experience anyway, even if it isn't ideal.

I cannot believe it is 20 years ago that we held the Salt Lake Olympics. That was such a wonderful time, so much fun. I worked in downtown SLC, and it was an amazing experience to be in the middle of it all.

I watched the curling already. I don't know why but I always enjoy watching it. I have tickets to the bronze medal hockey game, I'm pretty excited. Tickets are pretty much impossible to get, so I'm very lucky!

That's amazing you get to go to the hockey game.

There is something kind of hypnotic about curling. It is a crazy ridiculous sport.

I went to the skeleton event. It was so fun. At first we’d picked a spot right by the track and watched a bunch of people fly past us. Eventually we found another spot where we could still see the track but also watch like the tv feed. So fun. I remember USA won gold in both men and women. I think the guy’s name was Tommy Shea and he was last to go so he knew exactly what time he had to beat. When he did, there was a huge roar. Pretty cool to be up there.

My niece flew out to china earlier this week to cover the olympics. She is a reporter. She covered the last winter olympics as well. She loves it.

Why do so many of these 'sports' require judges? Why do so many of these 'judges' favour the Chinese? Just watched a Hungarian kid get robbed of gold, yesterday an American girl got stitched up for a Chinese girl.

The winter Olympics is ****ing ****.

Why does ski jumping need a judge? Jump the furthest you win. End of.
The only reason is that if you let them jump as they want it could lead to more accidents as going for a distance at expense of the telemark landing increases the chance of falling. I agree that it's weird though and could be replaced with a set of stylistic rules to follow and getting rid of the notes. I am also not a fan of those wind/gate compensation points, I think this system is far from optimal.

People used to watch formula 1 because it was dangerous....
