    I was in college then. That game actually happened on my birthday so it really is a special memory for me. And, as it happens, we had a snow storm about that time and the street in front of our house was iced over. We were all so excited about the Olympic hockey team that we were out on the street playing hockey.

    Meh. Not so interested
    Ps4 has my attention when I'm not at work.
    Maybe something will catch my eye.
    Probably just cause I hate the cold.

    Olympics in another time zone are tough to watch. I already know tonight's snowboard halfpipe results not much of a reason to watch.

    I'll be there for the women's figure skating finals though.

    Why watch the games when we aren't even competitive. This might go down as the worst showing by the US in history.

    Not even close, in 1988 we won 6 total medals, in 1924 and 36 we won 4.
