    Ya, I'm watching most of it online. I can watch CTV, TSN, and coverage that the two channels aren't showing. It's like the other day I was watching the feed for the men's Luge, while on CTV they had the women's moguls, and TSN had speed skating.

    I wonder why NBC is doing such a crappy job this time around. Of course, I'd also like to see coverage from Germany's ARD as Katarina Witt is broadcasting for them.

    Your dad is not confused at all. That piece is Mussogsky's "Night on Bald Mountain" which was used in Fantasia's Chernabog scenes. In turn, those scenes were adapted for use in Fantasmic.

    Barbossa, although I don't believe Lindsay Vonn was as hurt as she has been leading us to believe and there may be a bit of games(wo)manship going on, that was still an awesome clutch performance.

    If anyone is heading over to Vancouver to do some pin trading, the International Pin Exchange is setup at the Edgewater Casino in the former BC Pavilion at the former Plaza of Nations across the street from BC Place Stadium. I just read this on the 2010VanFan blog:

    2010VanFan
    To find it you enter the casino and head for the escalator at the far side of the playing floor, then head up to the second floor. Right in front of you you’ll find the Stadium room, which is where you want to be. Now, besides pin trading this room is equipped with THREE large screen televisions showing the Olympics, plus theatre style seating, plus $1 hot dogs and the best yet… $2 beer! Want to trade some pins and watch some hockey? Then this is where you want to be.
    $1 hotdogs and $2 beers? I'm there!

    There's other pin trading station setup throughout the city. The Coca Cola Pin Trading Centre is in The Bay departement store (HBC).

    The captions for the photos are amusing.

    Does anyone know where I can watch the competitions, that isn't an NBC (or the CTV) site? I don't want to download extra software just to watch one race.

    I watched both videos, twice,and couldn't hear it, due to the other announcing going on at the time. Interesting.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    For Men's Hockey, I'm actually pulling for Team Canada as 3 of our Ducks are on the team and winning the gold would mean far more for Canada than for us Americans.

    And that one Duck is a family friend.

    Thousands of fans at the taping of the Colbert Show in Vancouver today:

    Up close and personal with a bronze medal. On display at the Canadian Mint Pavilion, the medals are really really nice:

    Congrats to Lysacek for winning gold in Men's Figure Skating, and foo to all those that though Plushenko was robbed because he had a technically harder performence.

    1. It's not all about the jumps, if so then skating would be incredibly boring with no attention to footwork and artistic value.

    2. Yes, Plushenko was the only one that pulled off a quad out of anyone, but his jumps were sloppy...many of them that were close to having him fall since his body was really tilted in mid air.

    3. If there's one thing that Plushenko really fails at, it's artistry. Seriously his foot work and choreography was terrible, it wasn't going to save him from his less then perfect jumps.

    Just something I needed to get off my chest.
