Lots of great stories here:

lots of Colorado participants .
The hockey Teams of USA and Canada are both full of NHL players, but I would really like to see the USA get the gold.

The womens half pipe could have been swept by Americans, but for bad luck, taking nothing away from T. Bright from Australia.

any one else watching ?

Sure.......watched a lot..........but I'm with Andy on the figure skating. Generally don't like judging in Olympic sports but the men's half pipe was pretty good.............and the ski aerials are mind boggling. Their knees will be jelly by the time they are 30!!

Lotsa folks from my hometown are in the olympics with varying success.
Been watching a lot- first week I was wondering what NBC has against skiing, but have been happy with the second week's coverage. This trumped-up Vonn-Mancuso fued is annoying. Why can't people throwin' it down be enough of a story?

But it's dumping outside right now so I think I'll go for a ski with the dog.

And don't get me wrong-windsurfing rules!

Cheers to the Canadian hockey team for the 3-2 victory over the US Team.

probably the best hockey game ever. The US team came from behind to tie with about a minute to play, so the game went into overtime.

their were no losers here, brilliant Cool

Crashman....at one point I thought I was watching the annual Truckee/Squaw invitational.
