Awesome opening ceremonies and the men's snowboarding slopestyle was really quite exciting. One of the few sports where it didn't seem anyone cared who won, they just got excited over the tricks.

Yeah, I get the vibe that those guys on the slopestyle event see a lot of each other during the year and probably have somewhat of a camaraderie with each other due to the way the snowboarding competitors are viewed by the rest of the olympians. I know that the Canadian guy Parrot got all pissy because White pulled out but karma bit him in the ass.

The American guy that won it was pretty easy going and it showed him laughing and socializing with the other competitors with a pretty relaxed attitude for someone waiting to see if he won a gold medal. He seemed more excited about having pulled off that rare jump than winning the gold.

So, Austrian Matthias Mayer wins the gold in Men's Downhill, by far the most important discipline for Austria, like hockey for Canada or Russia; media will be triumphantly happy now.

Meanwhile French TV reminded us the origin of the word bérézina. A word that entered the French vocabulary and seemed appropriate for those first 2 days

I find those games very esthetic so far.

I haven't really watched this year but that seemed to be the case at the last games. The snowboarders all laughing and goofing around while the figure skaters are all crying and emotional.

Caught a bit of the women's snowboarding earlier. Nice to see the UK pick up their first medal of these games.

The men's alpine skiing downhill I have never seen a course as fast and as dangerous as that. Those skiers have far more guts than I will ever have.

I got up at 5am to watch the US women's curling team play. They started off great and then everything fell apart.

Well it's the round-robin stage in the curling. SO lots to play for.

Good day for Canada - kick things off with a gold in short track speed skating and end off with a gold and silver in the moguls. Though, a couple tough battles in men's curling against teams that you wouldn't think they'd have trouble against.

And it seems this year's events are already creating potential memes.

I'll reiterate: USA! USA!

And way to go Peg, anyone from the upper midwest with a black Lab is a friend of mine.

Labs rule!


So I got up again at 5am, this time to watch the US men's curling team. I expected them to lose to Norway, but I didn't expect them to get beaten badly by China.

Shaun Fucking White loses the halfpipe, who would've thought?...

Before the event I was rooting hard against him, but then I was kind of sad. I thought his final run had way more style than the winner's.

Not as badly as the USA womens team lost to the UK though 12-3 including a 7 point end. But medals aren't awarded at this stage.
