Sat at home watching the opening ceremony......beats working

So.....what are you looking forward to over the next 2 weeks
Prancing on ice?
Sliding lumps of granite?
Falling down a snowy hill?

I shouldn't mock..... usually quite enjoy it

I guess I should have added "The Olympic tournament is..." at the beginning.

But its not the best, its is professionals from lesser leagues, a lot of whom are past whatever NHL career they had, hence my Dad's Army comment.

Sorry, come again with your second paragraph?

They aren't amateurs, mate.

Supposed to be the best in the world, if that was the case then I would care more about the national team than the Oilers. Even as fragile as McDavid has been.

1-0 up, 1 minute to play so do you defend what you have or stick another centre forward on?

She did an “ Antonio “, she only had to keep it safe and the win was hers.

Re: Official Winter Olympics thread
Who cares? Let the amateurs play. This is a refreshing break from the NHL, and anyway I wouldn't want any of my team's players injured playing for Canada (or any other country).

I would probably care if we didn't have to send a "Dad's Army" version of a team.

The German government issued a travel warning to Germans in Canada, urging them to "hug a Canadian"

Top trolling.

I love it that they are the Scots when they lose.

It is what I do with the Quebecois. Or certain Jamaican drug cheats.

FFS why do that? Bloody Scots fucking up again.

Another bottling job from a Scottish team.

Celtic last night and now the curlers.

Get an English team in.

Incredible choke from the girls, especially eve.

To lose 3 stones when you've got the last one is diabolical.

Found myself watching the women's ice hockey final. Wouldn't my puck between the Lamoureux twins.

Re: Official Winter Olympics thread
The coverage of it stinks though. Round robin etc. You plan like 10 games if you get to the final. Of course have/had two teams from GB. So the BBC are milking it but too much IMO. Love a bit of Eve muirhead. Steve cram doing it does my swede in. He knows his stuff though. I've loved some of the cross country stuff. Proper athletes who don't require gravity

Ioc, We lost against Sweden, Finland and Germany. Won on sudden death against Slovakia and got to the QF. Weird tbh..

I like ski cross, very entertaining

This Ski Cross is a right old caper.

Cheers, good to know.
I just looked and they got to the quarters in mens. Not bad.
But you have to have those grassroots rinks to really do anything.

Semi professional league. Most talents play in Sweden or germany. Zuccarello is doing well in NHL, but there is far between Norwegian over there.
There are only a handful of indoor arenas in Norway, as Sweden has got at least one in every town.

They do have a small professional league and a handful of Norwegians have made the NHL over the years but not sure they have ever got a medal.

Team sport, as in ice hockey?
Yeah, Norway has always been amateurs in hockey.

The lack of Russian athletes and the US tanking it help but you have to hand it to them, they are punching well above their population weight.

Bit like Iceland in football.

Re: Official Winter Olympics thread
Hardly a surprise that a country who has hard core snow for about 5 months of the year and is one of the wealthiest on the planet is doing well.

If you're in the centre of Oslo with your skis, you can be on the slope in about 30 mins as it's basically above you.

Guessing their athletes don't have to gofundme to get the wedge needed to succeed!

Enjoyed it though, been decent so far.
