I love how non-chalant he is about it. I hear he was at a bar until midnight the night before his downhill run. Can't we get someone who appreciates the honor of being on the Olympic team to take his spot?

Have you heard any of this guy's interviews? He's out there. Having said that I don't think the jacket should be a big deal.

A better question would be, "Have you watched any of the winter olympics?" Answer: "No."

I watched some women's curling last night. I still don't really understand the sport beyond the obvious resemblance to shuffleboard, but I will say that the US team has some cute girls on it. They suck at curling though.

Super accurate. When the third missed that open take-out in the 11th last night you knew it was over. Having said that if you compare her to other female curlers she's a 10 out of 10.

I'm not sure which is worse: that you were using some sort of curling lingo (or maybe making up some sort of curling lingo as you went along,) or that I understood what you were talking about.

It is weird though: I was actually yelling at the TV during curling last night. And I have no idea whether I was watching live or not. Fortunately ESPN.com is too busy spoiling Bode Miller news on their front page to spoil women's curling results.

It wasn't live, but they have been showing live matches at 3am and 8am on USA. Great for TiVoing.

i watched usa v. italy in curling, and i have to say, although i always had an idea of what they were doing, it was much more enjoyable having gone through dr tankenstein's kurling krash kourse

Interesting story linked on Drudge this morning.

http://newsbusters.org/node/4057

As far as I'm concerned, Gumbel can say whatever he wants. More power to him.

But what would Gumbel's reaction be if someone made a similar, but opposite point about the NBA? I think the question answers itself.

Really? There's not enough black athletes in the Winter Olympics for Gumbel to watch?

On deck: Gumbel announces that he hates swimming, the Dave Matthews Band and John Deere stores. Funny how he never chastises his beloved golf as being too colorless.

Yeah, that conversation was heading into racial slurs before gumbel got involved. And you know what happens when gumbel gets in a racial one-upsmanship fight.

I watched my first bit of olympics last night. Watched some sort of downhill mogul thingy. Monsterette and I stuck through it for about two runs and we were already done.

From what I hear, its all qualifying and no delivery. The two minutes that I watched said "Ono in 26 minutes" and I thought to myself, "fuck that, I'm not waiting that long."
