yes :D Italians shouldn't even have participated. Too bad our team will knock USA out in semifinals instead of finals.

And don't tell me the US will win.

I was looking for a thread like this. I'm surprised there's not more discussion about the Olympics. Especially with some of the controversy this year, even though nothing can ever beat the Tonya Harding-Nancy Kerrigan incident. I don't know. How about the Sweden upset over the US in womens ice hockey? They still won bronze though. And Bode Miller's medal-less performances, including unfinished runs and disqualifications. The spills on the ice last night in pairs original dance, which now puts the US in second. Or what about the conflict between American teammates Shani Davis and Chad Hedrick? Come on people, lets discuss something fun, like possibly the most fun sporting event to watch every 2 years, although personally, I love the summer Olympics way more than the winters.

I meant the US still got a bronze medal. Oh, and that Marianne Timmer girl, there was an article today in the paper about how some Bakker guy went over with a group of 10 people to cheer for her, and that was why she won gold. Plus she's a good athlete where speedskating is the biggest country sport.

ice skating is just our thing. our country is funny when it comes to that sport. of course cheering helps, if you want to win things. it gives motivation & strength. every time people clap for me when I play the violin, I want want to play more & more & better & better. but she's really just a fantastic athlete. no one would've thought that after she peaked eight years ago, she could pull this off again.

Oh heck yes. I definitely forgot to mention Shaun White, quite possibly the coolest, haha get it? coolest., winter Olympian around. He's so cute with his carrot top head. The one interview he did on MSNBC this morning was hilarious. The interviewer had the nerve to ask about pre-competition going-ons, like all night parties and orgies. Shaun White's reply, "No comment." So funny. And what about the fact that he won the gold medal in the Olympics for snowboarding, but he also won the gold in the X-Games for BMX biking. He's an awesome person.

wow Italian mens, totally blew ass in hockey...and now Canada has lost 2 in a row...what am I going to do folks...WHAT.

I will say though, CBC (canadian channel) showed When Italia won Gold in Speed skating, with Canada silver and Francia bronze. Anyways, I haven't heard anyone sing the Italian national anthem in years...When they played the Italian national athem, I got all mysty eyed, since I hadn't heard it in so long...the whole crowd was singing...it was great. It made me emotional. To see my country of origin, and the country I live in...on the podium..it was great.

That is my token olympic moment that I would like to share with all of you :)

Anyone else feel this when they watch their country win?

the_GoDdEsS
02-23-2006, 03:41 AM
They played well, I won't take that away from them. But all those tactics, trying to stop the game, bumping against the net, attacking our attackers just when they were gonna shoot a goal all the time just because they knew that when it's 5 of us against 4 of them we're not able to take advantage of that.

I still don't like the rules. That you get kicked out because of losing the last match. And the Swedes annoyed the fuck out of me when they played against us. Deliberately losing. They were just there to ice skate a little. It was not a match.

02-23-2006, 04:01 AM

Has anyone seen the women's Aerials? It's been great, they're really talented, but when the Australian girl, forgot her name, dislocated/broke her knee after she had just recovered for it was really sad. They train for this for years, most likely doing excellent in their training, and in the one day get judged, if they stuff up on the day, it's such a shame.

Alisa Camplin got bronze :) , go Australia! She did very well.
