Oh, Canada...

 

Well it's offically begun: the 2010 winter olympic games. Man have we kicked !@$ so far. Let's sum it up:


-Luger tragically dies in a training run

-Vancover decides to be super warm and rainy (great for skiing!)

-hydrolics in the opening get stuck...just wow


Killin' it!


In related news, a U.S. snowboarder was interviewed and asked how it felt to be in the olympics. His response quoted:

Graham Watanabe told reporters Wednesday that his second Olympic appearance was like "Pegasus mating with a unicorn and the creature that they birth I somehow tame it and ride it to the sky and clouds and sunshine and rainbows,"


/olympics


Have a good one,

I can't believe that they had Nancy Greene help light the olympic torch. I mean, yeah, she was the first woman to win a gold medal at the winter olympics, and she also won another two medals that year alone. I lived in a resort called Sun Peaks, for several years and she was our mascot, so I can say that she is the biggest wino in Canada. She used to do this presentation every Sunday called "The Welcome Reception," that basically told guests about the different activities there was to be had at Sun Peaks; yet, every time she showed up she was drunk to point you could barely understand her.  Rick Hanson though, good choice for a torch bearer.

Ceremonies were amazing. I was lucky enough to attend them and be part of the lights in the crowd.

Watching the face of Wayne Gretzky, staring and waiting for those stupid hydraulic pillars not doing anything was pretty damn funny.

@Computerplayer1: You forgot to mention the Pedobear incident(s). Anyway i honestly don't know a single person who cares about them anymore. Are they even relevant at this point?

But we delayed the actual Olympics until 2011 because of marketing reasons.

Did you see Stephen Harper and Michaelle Jean in the dignitary box? They looked uncomfortable just listening to it.

hehe, i didn't see much of anything. I was playing my DS while listening to everything. fell asleep during the ceremonies too because i was too lazy to go turn the volume up (the volume level on CTV was for some reason, very, very low) so i ended up falling asleep during the whole mechanism "fail" as people have been talking about.  
 
still, anthem was very... ugh

Our troops in Kandahar, when it showed them listening looked uncomfortable as well. Why they had to stretch a one minute anthem into a two minute and over one, I'll never know.

I missed the opening ceremonies, and in a way, I'm glad I did.
 
A 2.5 minute version of our national anthem? Unless it was rock-opera I'm disgusted.

As a Canadian I was embarrassed at the national anthem. What in the fuck were they thinking?

@Cube: oh believe me, I think that 99% of us did. That was the worst rendition of our anthem I've ever heard. And there's been some bad ones.

Same. They could not have screwed it up any more. Maybe even a techno version could have been more enjoying.

That tapdancing stuff was so strange to me. Maybe it was just me.
