I've obviously been watching a shit ton of Olympics. I think we should note that the new sport of Slopestyle is INSANE. Like, I cannot even with it. Both versions, snowboard and skiing, just totally blow my mind.

I get weirdly into biathlon every year and I'm super pumped to watch more.

Charlie and Meryl. NO WORDS for how amazing they are.

I post the following link for why I love the Olympics. Everyone is working together, because sports.

I'm watching cross country right now-women's sprint. No US woman has ever medaled. I'm pulling for us!


Feel good story man-YAY OLYMPICS

The same Russian skier fell down again today in the semifinals. I hope he's okay. Poor dude.

OLYMPIC FEVER! Live-blogging the arrivals.

Yeah, I'm still alive.  Apparently I only like to blog about the Olympics.

So I am too.
(Told ya.)

This time, I am in law school at night (HEY I'M IN LAW SCHOOL NOW), so I need to figure out how to watch my primetime coverage another way.  Perhaps I resort to severely delayed videos online.  Whatever.  I'm not missing all of the Games.

8:33pm: I have nothing to say thus far.  We're on a commercial break before the Parade of Nations.   I DO have to say that I am so sad that Apolo Anton Ohno is not competing.  But I am also happy that he'll be around doing his reporting stuff.  It is not the Winter Olympics without him.  Can we also discuss my love of Jason Brown??  And Shaun White.  And Charlie & Meryl.  And J.R. Celski.  I totally choose favorites.

8:37pm: There's Greece!  We are under way!

8:41pm: "No South American country has ever won a [winter] medal."  Interesting.

8:50pm: Aww, Venezuela's flag bearer is DANCING out!

8:53pm: German rainbow uniforms!

8:56pm: Zimbabwe's first Winter Olympian!

9:11pm: Independent athletes!  They're way less excited than the group in 2012.

9:25pm: USA!  USA!  OMG there is a "marcher's eye view" camera.  IT IS LIKE I AM MARCHING IN TOO.  I spot Jason Brown hanging out with Gracie Gold!  Shaun White with the Go Pro!  Shani Davis with a creative wave! All the cellphones and selfies!

9:33pm: Are the athletes from Chinese Taipei wearing Snuggies?

9:45pm: Jamaican bobsledders!

9:47pm: Russia is entering like rockstars.  The music changed, the crowd got loud, and their fur-accented jackets are amazing.

Your Turn, Emily


Long time no...nothing.

Let us get straight to the point.

Olympic time all over again. It seems like it was yesterday when we were in Vancouver, complete with singing and dancing Mounties, Michael Buble and giant beavers.

In case you thought I was kidding. (from http://www.rcinet.ca/english/illustration/htmleditor/beaver.jpg)

I'm pumped for Sochi shenanigans and we ALL know there will be loads of them.

(I'm ignoring London as those were Summer Games and while Summer Games are great, I LOVE WINTER OKAY)
