    [color=purple][i][size=5]Even though it’s natural to cheer for home country … My better half & I (plus the hound) are enjoying the Olympics … if someone is a super star in another country or gives a performance of lifetime — it amazes me. For example, I remember not too long ago when an ice skater (figure skating) landed the 1st QUAD … I wonder if anyone has done a QUIN yet (5X) as that could be coming in 2022 – lol ..

    And now they are routine, as the world’s best from Japan were 2 from Japan who did about 5 or 6 QUADs as if it normal … I am indeed amazed at the guy showered with “Winnie the Pooh” gifts (that get donated to needy kids) — and not only technical side … but having a love of arts, the music interpretations are awesome … Soaking up as much as possible — as It ends in a week or so 8)

    I hear ya. I changed over to Asian markets a week and half before Olympics started just so I could watch as much of the Olympics as possible. Canadian Broadcast Corporation (CBC) does an excellent job of covering the Olympics. Highly recommend a VPN for summer as its geo blocked outside of Canada.

    Couple days ago, I had two events on the TV (going back and forth) while another event on the computer and another on the tablet.

    Canada is struggling at curling this year – which is kinda good news because it shows there is more interests in the sport world wide.

    Currently I am watching Men’s Hockey, Canada is playing South Korea, or is it Canada vs Canada?
    six Canadians playing hockey for South Korea at the Winter Olympics

    [color=teal][b]ICE Dancing was incredible & love the artistry, music, & precision … Canada won GOLD with 2 of best in history 8) … FRANCE was awesome in SILVER … USA won BRONZE with awesome brother/sister team … plus another USA pair came in 4th …. I was commenting to my bride that with a 1000% increase in hair & a flamboyant costume — I could become the next analyst like Johnny Weir …. NOT 😉 :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

    Both USA & Canada hockey no longer allow the active players … so USA has a bunch of Yale Bulldogs & NHL retirees …Both USA teams have been clawing back some, but not sure of where this exactly stands 🙂

    USA team won for BEST MUSIC last night 8) 8)[/b][/color]

    [color=red][b]WOW – USA women’s team of the one “true sport” got lucky last night in 6th shootout to break a 2-2 tie 🙂 .
    Watch out WALL STREET, I can see a certain Canadian “colluding” & creating a SELL-OFF today 😉 :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:
    Still the great white north captured SILVER last night & the Candian men should win GOLD (USA is out I believe) 8)[/b][/color]

    [b][color=purple]With active NHL players no longer participating — I did see more parity among nations
    Otherwise Canada or USA teams would always win (as NHL players make huge difference,
    NHL is truly best in world — verses the retired and the “Yale Bulldog” hockey concentration on USA team for example[/color][/b]
