I love the Winter Olympics. We will be watching. I have super fond memories of watching the Winter Olympics with Jim McKay and that shot of nordic jumper in the agony of defeat. Love it.

Not sure I love the Ralph Lauren outfits for the US though.

Men's US Hockey Team wearing those RL outfits will look ridiculous......

After spending $50 Billions (official version) and the labor cost on par with any 3rd World country, have anyone seen the photo of the bathroom with two toilets side by side? A three bed bedroom for the NHL hockey players that resembles an orphanage?

I'll be watching the hockey games, that's for sure!! Well, I'll at least watch as much as I can. I love speed skating and the downhill events as well.

"They" are doing the same to the "inconvenient" people, so why stop there?

I have friends on the US cross-country ski team. I will be watching them, maybe even live-streaming in the middle of the night. US skier Kikkan Randall is the gold medal favorite in cross country sprint races. I know cross country skiing is considered boring, but the sprints can actually be quite exciting. So here's my plug for the skiers!

And I also like watching ski jumping, downhill racing, and snowboard tricks. No idea how I'll find the time to watch much, though. Someday, I hope they'll add skijoring (with dogs) to the event schedule.

I will not watch or acknowledge anything that has to do with or is the cause of homeless dogs being killed.
