Don't worry about it, everyone's a little bit racist.

Can't wait for the ice hockey final.

Congratulations to the Nordic Combined team! After years of training with little or no respect in the states I suppose) They've finally arrived! 3 silvers and a gold!!!



Its a shame Bill Demong, Johnny Spillane and Todd Lodwick don't get more recognition in America. They are well known in Europe as every World Cup race is usually shown live on Eurosport.

Well. they are over, and they were great! I flew my flag, wore my jewelry (not official) and sweatshirt (official), And had an Olympic theme on my Firefox persona and a picture from the Opening Ceremony on my Desktop. Last night I took in my flag, but I'm going to leave the computer stuff up for a while - I can't bear for it to be totally over!

I have decided that Apolo Anton Ohno is my greatest Winter Olympian. He didn't win as many golds as others, but his sport is so incredibly volatile that for him to win medals over 3 Olympics is just amazing.

Now I have to wait until the summer of 2012 for more Olympics.

Can't say I cared for much else but Ice Hockey, and wow, Finland grabbed the bronze medal, that was a shocker
Some good games, and the Final was great, both Canada and USA played a good game, but Canada was a bit better in my opinion, their defense was great!

Ugh that final was a heartbreaker. Tie it up in the last 30 seconds only to just give up a goal in overtime.

Closing ceremonies were alright. Some of the performers they brought in were pretty questionable, but aside from them it was a good show.
