Oh dear...Canada lost to GERMANY in hockey! First Sweden loses and now Canada? Jesus...

Wonder how they'll do against the Russians.

Congrats to SERWA for gold in Ski Cross. :)

I just don except laziness and doing nothing. That's where I feel that video games could lead to. And that would be a problem with me. Sorry, those are my values, instilled in my since I was a child.

Laziness that isn't a symptom of other problems has been a thing long before video games. With people like that, if it's not one thing, it's another.

No, there aren't any hard feelings.

I never gave a damn about any opening ceremony. Russia is hardly the only doping country, they're just the ones who get caught the most.

As for how Russia sees itself? Well, what were you expecting? They have a long history of nastiness, bleakness and complexity. Something like that wouldn't work in an opening ceremony.

Yes. The atheletes found innocent were able to compete as OAR.

And now, figure skating. Chan! YAY! Went from a painful short program to a godlike long one! One of the best scores ever! Hooray! Loved Misha Ge too.

It's usually Norway and Germany that dominate the Winter Olympics. Then, there's the Dutch who dominate Speed Skating.

Can we talk about some actual Olympics now? Men's figure skating is tonight and early Saturday, I will be getting up to watch short track speed skating live.

I don't think someone who probably isn't really experienced in e-sports would be able to give a good argument.

This is George Carlin we're talking about. If he was still alive, he would have torn it to shreds. :p

I don't object to E-sports, I just don't think it should be included in the traditional Olympics. They should have a separate Olympics(E-Olympics has to be a thing) as they are entirely different competitions. It's why they're called E-sports. Watching TV sport is a thing too. Want that in the Olympics?

Short track speed skating is one of my favorite winter olympic events. I have no clue why, probably because my mom loved Apolo Ohno.

Oh yes! I love short track too! So fun to watch!

George Carlin on what sports is and isn't: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSJRIKuNJBA

I wonder what he would have said about E-Sports.

I do agree that E-Sports should be separate as IMO, it's entirely different from what goes in to the actual Olympics.

That being said, the US made history in men's Luge(poor Loch though) with a first silver medal. The Netherlands dominate Speed Skating as expected. Loved most of the routines in team figure skating(Italians were especially charming, but that's not technical difficulty).

Caught most of the finals this morning. Great to see a Japanese woman win silver in Speed Skating.

Curling finals should be interesting. :) I'm sure Bakker would prefer Canada, but I think Switzerland will win.

No thread for the Olympics? There is now. :)

Just saw some mixed team curling. Trying to find livestreaming of the Alpine training runs.
