I enjoy the winter olympics much more then the summer event of the same name. The skiing, snowboarding, and skating are fun for me to watch. I thought I'd just share a few thoughts on the most recent installment.
- I do not enjoy the figure skating events. Does it seem to anybody else that the men get more and more effeminate?
- The fascination with curling is beyond me.
- Speed skating is ruthless - and the judges are not to be trusted.
- I can't believe the things that some of those skiiers and boarders do - and the slopes they ski.
- The mogul skiiers aren't human.
- Biathlon must be incredibly difficult. Getting your breathing to cooperate for the shooting after skiing hard seems to be quite a feat.
- I didn't watch it live, but that hockey game was obviously one for the ages. Congrats Canada!
- I wonder how much the taxpayers of Vancouver and Canada are going to end up paying for the privilege of hosting.
- I wonder how many missionaries were in Edmonton and Whistler.
- I never saw any of the ski jumping. I'm sorry I missed it.
While all those superior athletes were displaying their collective prowess, my wife and I were skiing with our #1 grandson. We didn't ski as well as they do, nor did we get any medals (of any color). Our rewards were greater, though. We had two different devotionals with him each day, learned a new memory verse, played board games, and just plain enjoyed his company.
