Hell yeah, I love the Olympics. Stoked about USA basketball, watching some women's soccer, women's gymnastics, women's track, Usain Bolt look like he's running on air, and my newest found gem of a sport (I love curling in the winter) handball. Really don't get why it hasn't caught on over here.

curling is fucking amazing. so much strategy involved!

^he is not joking

i love the olimpic ring part in the opening
But the best part was the musical changes.
They showed so many legends.

But still pretty weak opening aganist others

Now only burning of the torch part left for the openings.
Im suprised Muse wasnt there

blue team runs to the right and scores
red team runs to the left and scores
blue team runs to the right and scores
red team runs to the left and scores

curling is fucking amazing. so much strategy involved!

maybe it's just me and my friends though. we also think frisbee golf should be an olympic sport.

I just don't see it. You clear the ice of debris/smooth it out to get the granite to slide further. I'm for real trying out for that. But I would watch it just because it made me laugh.

So...the soccer started a few day's ago? How is that?

I guess they gotta make it fit all during these 2 weeks :P My GF is excited watching this Opening Ceremony and I gotta say it is boring and IMO does not top Japan's Opening Ceremony.

Being a Canadian, I don't really give a shit about summer olympics. It seems incredibly lackluster this time too. People don't seem as excited as past olympics. Maybe if they brought baseball back I'd watch. I won't be paying attention though.
