What’s up with the blue lines in the snow? I can almost understand the ones that are marking a corridor down the hill, but if you don’t get points off for skiing outside the lines, why bother? And just what purpose do the ones perpendicular to the course serve? The lines are all fuzzy too. This is the Olympics, man, every 4 years, big worldwide audience, couldn’t you get them a little sharper?
Super G? Is there a Regular G?
Giant Slalom, same question? (And is it just me or does the word slalom look misspelled?)
Curling. Enough said.
If Skeleton is the opposite of the Luge, why don’t we have Backwards Bobsledding?
I’m thinking that those women’s ice dancing costumes might be sexy with all that “skin” showing, if they didn’t look like they were designed by the eliminees of Bravo’s show Runway.
Who designed the medals? They look colored CDs on a ribbon. And why does it take 6 people 10 hours to make one?
So far the coolest thing about the Olympics was in the surreal opening ceremony, red-clad in-line skaters with specially designed flame-shooting helmets. I gotta get me one of those. Wait here while I go check Ebay.…nope, but it is only a matter of time.
