only reason people watch these games is to argue and bash about nationality.
-downhill skiing (fun to view)
-ice skating (neat)
-curling... (why is ice shuffle board a sport?)
Ok, I admit it makes me happy to see countries with tyrannical governments get beaten by democratic nations but I am not bashing their nationality. Actually, while I may root against the communist Chinese I love Chinese culture.
Why is ice shuffleboard a sport? Because every Olympics must have a "silly sport". Summer has synchronized swimming. And apparently ice shuffleboard isn't all that easy since the U.S. came in last place.
obviously some people haven't ACTUALLY been watching the olympics. I can't speak for other countries but canada DOESN'T bash other countries! In speed skating we were super supportive of the other teams like the netherlands.
And i do find curling tiresome to watch. But people, you've got to appreciate the skill it requires to do any of those sports! Hockey rocks and what wrong with figure skating?
