Does anyone actually care/watch the White Winter Olympics? I guess this thing about Michelle Kwan dropping out is big news. Yawn. Anything that has a "kiss and cry area" is not a sport.

For me the Winter Olympics are just more of a distraction from important time that should be spent researching College Basketball in prepartion for the construction of your March Madness brackets.

Want a Winter Olympics prediction?

Shaun White wins everything snowboarding and then decides he wants to dominate figure skating as well and does.

What kind of a nickname is "The Flying Tomato"? That's pretty lame.

It'd be like if I was a really good athlete, calling me "The Colbmeister." Stupid.

I actually watch some of the Olympics. Being in Seattle we get CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Channel). It is really interesting to see coverage of the off the beat events. Cross-country skiing, speed skating where they show several races not just the winning race and the Americans. Skeleton is always fun.

99.999999999% white.

Yes Flying Tomato is ridiculously stupid. Good point Nico, but I still think there are more white people at the Winter Olympics then a GOP convention (might be close though).
