Are you Game?

Today is day three of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. I love this time of year. I know that some may not care for it..but it is something like I said in an earlier post this past week that I grew up watching. What are your favorite events for the Olympics?? Are there certain events that you can not miss? Watching the games this year makes me remember staying up late when I was in grade and high school watching the games to see who would win gold.

The events that I like to watch are snowboarding, luge, any of the downhill skiing, some of the cross country skiing, bobsled and figure skating are some that I try to watch. I like the men's speed skating, but can not stand that the announcers talk through the entire race!!

Rob mentioned today that he remembers watching figure skating on Saturday evenings on prime time when he was a kid. I sat and thought to myself and remembered the same thing. Yet now if you want to see figure skating, you have to either really search for it on television. Anymore you see only the holiday specials or something in that nature for figure skating.

I am enjoying some of the more modern sports that have crept into the olympics like snowboarding. I just love watching someone do tricks and or race while on a board. I too can do those same tricks when I am walking in the snow and slip on some ice. haha. I may have some wonderful sweet words to go along with it, too.


  1. I LOVE the figure skating. We don't have cable though, so I can't watch any of it. Plus it's hard to sit and watch the Olympics with a 19 month old around- he he! ; )

  2. I love figure skating too. I'm also semi-interested in curling b/c it's just an odd sport and b/c I had a friend in college who was a curler and tried out for the Torino Games. And I agree, I wish there were more figure skating in primetime!

  3. Linda...did you catch the curlinge on the USA Network today around noon eastern?!! The husband and I watched it for three hours. what an interesting game!!

  4. No!! I don't have cable (I know, I'm from the Ice Ages), but even if I did, I am at work 9-5 so I wouldn't have been able to see it. Bummer. But I'm glad you and your husband got to see some of it. I don't know if you're a fan of Stephen Colbert, but he did a segment where he tried to join the US Curling Team. It's realy funny. You might be able to find it on YouTube.
