This is the last day of the Olympic games, and this year I have found the Olympics to be above average. From the death of Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili, the Lindsey Vonn saga, Apolo Ohno's record metal count, to Bode Miller getting his props, lots of events caught my attention. Shaun White makes me wonder why I the X-Games on ESPN is not a major winter event. We saw the Men's 4 man bobsled team shock everyone. This afternoon is the gold metal hockey game, I will be chanting USA from my couch.

I just finished watching No 1 Kansas lose to Oklahoma State. I also have been watch serveral college games that is to numereous to mention. So why am I, when flipping my channels, always make a stop the "the curling channel" CNBC, or USA?

Today I was forced to stay home. Where I live there is 2 feet of snow, and nobody in their right mind (except the kids) is going out there in this weather. So I was starved for some sporting action. Since the Olympics are on TV this afternoon I had little choice but to watch it. I saw the mens hockey in which the United States took a commanding 6-0 in the first periord over Finland and never looked back. They won 6-1.

I have been watching the Olympics faithfully. I have enjoyed watching the winter athletes compete. There have been some interesting stories, and of course I have been rooting the United States to win in all the sporting events. When reality sets in that we can not do that, I have been admiring other country athletes. The Koreans in speed skating, the Canadians in curling, etc. I am just a litte upset that we can not hold the Olympics every year.

I have been watching the Olympics, I have seen various events that I know I will not be seeing for another 4 years. Most of these sports are just not shown on a national scale, like the biathlon, or short track speed skating. It is just not shown, because there is no Wide World of Sports that shows them on a Saturday afternoon anymore.

I enjoyed the game and did not care who won. That is a lot of people to watch a game at an areana. The half time show was ok, it beats the Who. The game is what I expected, no defense and lots of fastbreak (down hill)ball. It is just a great exhibition game.

The NBA All star game is here. The second best all star game outside of baseball. The fact that it is an offensively minded game with no defense makes the game exciting. There will be dunks after dunks and a fastbreak offensive style. So there will be no real hard foul called. All my favorite players will be there and this will just be eye candy to watch this game.

Another winter Olympics are here. The opening ceremony was very impressive. I am sure that there will be inspirational stories about the athletes that will be heard through the games. Right now the two stories are the bad weather on the ski slopes, and the death of Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili.
