So, anyone have any favorite moments from the past Olympics? America has done AMAZING!

I loved that Shaun White won Men's Half Pipe Snowboarding, he's now won half of the half pipe gold's given out.(snowboarding has only been in the Olympics since 1998 )

I was so happy that Evan Lysacheck won the Men's Figure skating! He's worked SO hard for that medal, he really deserved it. And Plushanko is insane...................

Anyone else have any other moments?

I've been loving the Games, the ladies figure skating was wonderful, best I've seen for years

Really enjoyed the snowboarding sports, especially the one where there were 4 people on course racing each other!!

Congratulations Vancouver on a great Olympics!!!

Well, as I live in (well, about an hour outside of) Vancouver, I can say the games have been a blast! Downtown Vancouver has been a huge party, and everyone is so excited to be here! I've been down there twice now and it's been a ton of fun! I have about 200 pictures, but none of them are online yet.
I love how patriotic everyone is!

Shaun White is a B.E.A.S.T! His performance was absolutely amazing! He won on his first run!

I always love seeing the figure skating. Evan was particularly good that night and totally deserved to win. Plachenko was being a huge baby. Spiteful Russians are no fun ;)

Mao Asada and Kim Yu-Na were amazing, too. Joannie Rochette was really good. I feel bad for her that her mom died two days prior to skating but she pulled through it and made her proud.

Apollo Ohno is AMAZING.

Stormy: You and Shaun is like me and Apollo. :D

Ohno's name amuses me, and I'm happy I saw him race before retiring. He's a risk taker!

I've watched bits and pieces of it here and there, but I'm not a hardcore olympics fan like some people. No horse games! -shrugs-

Hahahaha Drew, good luck with that! ;)


I LOVE watching Ladies skating, only it makes me sad. If you didn't know I skated for 10 years of my life, before quiting to really go strong with my eventing. I miss it SO much, but I wouldn't trade riding for anything!

Kim and Moa are both amazing athletes! Both free skates were amazing! I really love Rachel Flatt so much, I really think she'll be a force to be reckoned with in Sochi!

It really will!

Shaun was just over in London, pushing for skateboarding (vert ramp) to become an Olympic sport! I hope it does, it's vert ramp skating and BMX riding is really hard, and what they do is CRAZYYYYYYYY!

Torah was amazing, I was VERY disapointed in Gretch, Elena, Kelly, and Hannah. They've all been riding very well and did really well at the X's. Oh well. The pipe was also crap anyways, buttttt I won't get into that rant!

Looked like a pretty exciting hockey match!
