The only reason that I found out about the Olympics was because my friend who does ice-skating had told me about it several times.

I've become a bit interrested in it, but I've only wathed a bit of it since the television belongs to my parents...
After all it's only crap (sorry!) they show in the television these days.. And my parents love watching it again and again..

My friend and I have also decided that we are going to carry that flame thing in 1212...

I'm sorry about the misstakes, but someone has taken the dictionary..

yeah i agree about that there is nothing to watch on tv these days...most of the time at least. but olympics make it worth having tv at home :P
actualy i am not very happy with how canadian tv covers it too....live ones are ok, but since i cant get up at 5 am to watch slpine askiing i have to watch re runs with lots of stuff cut out. also now that hockey will begin it will be shown many many times. i hope canada looses it to sweden :twisted: then i will definately celebrate :P
oh and american coverage is even worse..its unwatchable. how stupid these bastards are...nbc :roll:
in any case i watch about 4 hours of it if not more every day.

tell me mate how are you planing to cary the flame? i thought it was only for distinguished people. i would like to be a volunteer in vancouver 2010 olympics but its a bit complicated.

David...the greek tv is even more crap!

for example , the news flash instead of saying the greece news and abroad news , they're giving an conference for the 'hot' new , which this week is the birds' flu...and spreading panic everywhere!

I still eat chicken , I know for certain that after some cooking , the flu virus ' won't be alive...

I only watch only Desperate Housewives , and another turkish tv show with TV subs , occanosially an film with interesting story , and rarely , I catch some old tv series from USA...like Yes,dear or Nanny , or Witch ( they're my favorites...)

I also love to see old films :)

Finland has total 5 medals right now! If we devide that number by the population of Finland we'll be beaten only by Norway. Yay!

thanks pifou, cool vids.

today was the most esciting hockey match i ever saw, when Suisse won against canada. i was so happy 8) i am going to pray thay they will get to quarter finals.
usa loose against slovakia was pretty fun too :P

i loved todays super g skiing. canadian got 4th place...too bad. i am even more happier that austrian got place instead.

biathlon was amazing too, but NBC puts too much commercials. :evil:

I can just imagine it.....

PRESENTER:- And welcome to NBC.....We must apologise inadvance that your commercials will be interrupted by visits to the 2006 WINTER OLYMPICS....But, we will try to keep the interruptions to a minimum so as not to spoil your enjoyments of the wonderful commercials we have...(for products you wouldn't buy in a million years.)

Spike..... :D
