mentioned on the news here in the States tha this is the worst rated TV olympics since 1968.

I would think that they could get better ratings if they didnt have the results mentioned on the hr every hour on TV prior to them showing the events.

They use the "Turn your head away from the screen" thing when they post them...but come on...just don't show it at all and perhaps people will turn it on here and watch them!

Btw...Bob Costas is a bore to watch and listen to here in the States when they show the games. This guy was so out of touch on the Snowboarding it was ashame. Perhaps someone with the knowledge on the sport should have doen the interviews and commentating!

Thats the captain of finnish curling team and some sort of demi-god of curling here in Finland. After winning Britain in semi-finals, he still doesn't look happy or anything. That looks more like he just raises his hands because everyone else does that too after winning. Next hes coming for you Canada. Beware of the man of one expression.

rofl i thought costas "trying" to do the snowboarding was the best piece of comedy i have heard in a while. try this, instead of focusing on what a dumb shit he is, laugh ur ass off at how hard he was struggling to name tricks, also at how OBVIOUSLY teleprompted the last 1\2 was. (guess they thought he needed help)

It's seems that all finnish sporters seem to have emotionless facial features, Raikonnen hardly laughs, that ski-jumper guy, who used to win everything...

I also like it that that swedish chick is making a victory belly slide but has no smile on her face or anything. Looks more like she is in full concentration as if the belly slide were an event.

You can say whatever you want about us, but we are the ONLY country in the world who has a legion of supporters at ANY sport. If someone or a team from our country is playing some tournament or something somewhere, you can count on it that there is a bunch of Orange coloured people right behind them to cheer and have a good time.

Nowhere is speed skating as "fun" as in Heereveen. Coming worldcup is also gonna be crazy.. streets will be coloured Orange, stadiums will be filled with orange people (atleast, for the amount of tickets that we get to fill stadiums).

you should really read the rest of the post too 3d.

Orange is the colour of the house of our royal family. I haven't studied on the subject but it MIGHT have gotten something to do with Willem van Oranje (Oranje=Orange.. doh). But, I could also be wrong there, atleast I know that it's the colour of our royal family.
