I find curling interesting, but you do kind of have to pick a team to be pulling for. It's like a giant game of bar shuffleboard.

Is that a cool thing to say?

I think most people like it because it’s ridiculous like shuffleboard on ice.

I am in good shape but could not do what the curlers do without a bunch of practice. I always thought it was a game rather than a sport, but they have to move quick on those funky shoes (different soles on each foot) and press hard to make that rock move. And then there is the strategy.

Not for everyone I guess but I enjoyed it. Coverage was bad but still fun.

Yeah, lots of people talking about how they really enjoy watching curling. There's no suspense and it's incredibly boring. And it's on all the time. It's like watching darts, except with that the insane fans in the crowd make it somewhat interesting.

NBC's coverage so far really is wretched. Their commentators are the most boring I can remember for any sports broadcast.

I didn't see it actually happen but did see where Katie Couric was beat up pretty badly for suggesting the Dutch were really good at speed skating because they was a common form of commuting for them.

I like cats. They apparently make good curling stones, when frozen. Which of course doesn't negate previous life possibilities.

Lotr is pretty sure these are nazi's trying to seduce the western world. Careful, those N Koreans are tricky!

ps: to embed youtube, the board no longer uses that code. Instead, look below the video on youtube. Just below the "subscribe" is "share." click that. Copy and paste the youtu.be link exactly and the video will embed.

Note that the 3rd girl from the left was not cheering sufficiently nor was her smile genuine - looks like it might be time to throw her family into the starving dog pit. Wait, on 2nd thought execution by antiaircraft gun may be more motivating for the rest of the girls.

Great, knowing they monitor US views, you probably really did just get that girl and her family killed.

Shouldn't you be watching some curling rather than kvetching on Yappi?

Shouldn't you realize this is the general board, not the debate board? We're trying to talk about sports and the olympics and your chicken little routine got old first post. At least have the social sense and graces to move along or limit to topic.

In two stunning hockey upsets this morning, USA lost to Slovenia, a country with less than 2 million people, and heavily favored Russia lost to Slovakia. Not sure which is more embarrassing tbh. Would be cool to see someone outside of Canada, Sweden Finland or Russia win hockey gold.

There's no appreciation for Hans Brinker these days.

Anyone see that Swaney girl and her "skiing" accomplishments in the games?

Literally no tricks in a halfpipe. She just went up and down. Pretty funny how She gamed the system
