it wasnt bad, it went flawlessly up until the closing minutes when they were raising what was supposed to be 4 pillars, one for each of canadas great sports stars to light which would then light the final flame, but only 3 pillars raised, so 2 of the people had to light the same pillar.

Dude the whole opening sucked. Everyone was lip singing, there first cauldron failed and left the only Olympian with the flame just standing there. Then it was not high enough to they had to make a second one. Epic fail, from the tap dancing red haired mohawk man to the ninja violin player.

You want to know what everyone in China is doing right now. This ROFL!LOL Hilarious!

A guy I went to high school with is in charge of the all of the video coverage there. Brett has been doing the Olympics with his brother since 2004. His older brother started in 2002. It's funny thinking about Brett being responsible. I'll never forget the time I was sitting in my porch drunk as hell talking to one of my friends. All of the sudden this white car came out of no where trying to turn into the alley and slammed into a brick wall. Brett jumped out of his lexus and told us he never seen him. He grabbed what was left of his bumper and drove off. Too this day I keep thinking what the **** just happened.

For some reason America getting hammered and Canada has less snow. Go figure. Luge track killing sliders. Opening ceremonies more like a bad movie. It reminded me of the Stonehenge in Spinal Tap with the midgets dancin around it.

It will get good though. Germans are amazing at this stuff. Canadians are amazing at this stuff. And Americans/Russians are also pretty damn good at the Winter Games.

So who is the favorite in Hockey?

I'd handicap the hockey field as Canada, Russia, Sweden, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Finland, America. America has more talent than the Fins, but the Fins always show up at these competitions. The Czechs are a huge wild card. Russia's team composition is a little weird, but no one can compete with their offensive capabilities. Canada, as always, is the most physical team, but their make up is always a bit haphazzard and the players don't have any time together. They'd be well served to keep the Heatley/Thorton/Marleau line together. It'll be interesting to see how the huge numbers of KHL players influence how this thing goes down.

I'll be rooting for the USA, but realistically, it will take alot for them to even medal. If the USA can't win it, I'd love to see Sid lead Team Canada to the gold medal.

I agree that Ovechkin-Malkin-Kovalchuk is more lethal than any single scoring line the Canadians have, but Canada has alot more quality depth and balance. It is for that reason that I doubt Russia will play those three consistently on one line. It would be way too top heavy and their other three lines would get smoked by the Canadians for the 40 minutes they were out there.

Joking aside it does seem that Cananda is failing more than I thought. There is very serious homeless/hunger problem in Vancouver anyway. I highly doubt NBC has covered the rioting and protests going on? There have been daily disruptions of bus service by protesters and I've heard local reports of looters smashing store fronts in. There seems to be a large local population that is not supportive of the olympics and the costs associated with it.

Right now my feeling is they will stick Malkin with Kovalchuk and maybe Morozov or Radulov and Datsyuk with Ovechkin and Semin, that leaves a checking line with Fedorov, Frolov and maybe Zherdev and a 4th line with Filatov, Kovalev and Yashin something like that.

Well, there isn't a VERY SERIOUS homeless/hunger problem going on in Vancouver. Vancouver's homeless population is pretty average sized. There is a lot of opposition to the games for a lot of reasons in Canada. The games are being held on stolen native land is a popular one, but the big one is in the months leading up to the games, the government tried to shine Vancouver up some(Something that DIDN'T happen in my hometown in 1988, so this isn't CANADA AT LARGE). They closed down free needle clinics, gave a large number of homeless people tickets out of town, crap like that. It's decently disgusting from a Canadian perspective, but its not cause for a crisis. There's some dicks involved in running the Olympics, it's not as if there's a sickness at the heart of Canada or anything. I've heard a lot of people comparing this to the **** China was doing in the leadup to Beijing, and the comparison is absurd.

I haven't heard anything about looters smashing store fronts in. There have been some protests, but there aren't riots going on or anything.

The whole thing was a cluster**** for them unfortunately. Some of the construction companies that got the contracts went under and have a lot of legal problems. Basically the entire city was forced to be put on the hook for it all or else welcome the world with half finished venues.

Also, transportation. The geography of the mountains and rivers makes it a real bitch. There are a lot of buses but no light rail system to get people around locally, just the big sky trains. I'm sure you've noticed that the streets are a disaster for getting around in a car. Almost no turn lanes, parking is a bitch, and being a pedestrian is a contact sport.

The homeless/hunger problem is weird. It's heavily concentrated to one area and much different than a lot of other cities I've been in. Michigan was worse in every way but the big difference of the homeless people is the age. Everybody in Vancouver on the streets seems to be pretty young. In Portland and Grand Rapids they tended to be older.

It's still one of the best big cities I've ever been in. Certainly the best looking with the green glass everywhere. But a city is still a city. It has it's problems without a doubt.

Victoria is the absolute worst, it's homeless person mecca. It gets all the emo runaway kids, and the winters are so mild no one even has to find a shelter so there's no...ahem...population control. And it seems to have a very sympathetic populace, I think it's from being a university city.

Both are great cities with great people!

Canada is so awesome 90% of its population lives within 50 miles of the US Border...


:Broncos:

It's actually within 100 miles, not 50. Also, that's because of the cold, not you guys. Edmonton is the only Canadian City outside that zone, and it's a frigid hell.

I hate pink...and Canada is ok.

You can always visit Chicago's boys town. I only know where it is because I was trying to beat traffic on side streets after a Cub game. It is just a block or two east of Wrigley if you ever find yourself in Chitown.

Actually I felt more gay admitting to going to a Cub game as I am a 2005 WS Champion White Sox fan.

Vancouver has been a great host. Don't get me wrong my fellow Canadian omaners.

You all have great pride in your country. Sons of b****es!

FYI...$2.00 beers at the Holland House! Cheapest in town!

Right now my feeling is they will stick Malkin with Kovalchuk and maybe Morozov or Radulov and Datsyuk with Ovechkin and Semin, that leaves a checking line with Fedorov, Frolov and maybe Zherdev and a 4th line with Filatov, Kovalev and Yashin something like that.

Yeah, people seem to think the Russians go three deep....but everyone you just named (save maybe Federov) can score. The Russians are dangerous as ****

(I don't think Kovalev is on the team)

I thought the opening ceremonies were as gracious as the entire country; a celebration of their diversity and acceptance.

Screw you.

There was a lot of that... there was also a giant **** you America we're nothing like you in there as well (which was during the poem segment). Leave it to a Canadian YouTuber to do that though.

I haven't heard anything about looters smashing store fronts in. There have been some protests, but there aren't riots going on or anything.

Plenty of rioting videos on youtube if you want to see some more. The police beat them down though and things cleared up after a few days.

My buddie who is big on F1 racing went to Montreal and loved the city. He said he would retire there if it wasn't so freaking cold.
