    Canada will catch up when some of the events from later this week arrive. I hear they are particularly skilled in things like Downhill Backwards Moose Racing and Tree Milking

    My favorite is the igloo building event. Watching those sleek, icy blocks slide into place, it's almost like playing Tetris with ice cubes.

    One of the Silver medals of Norway was won by a 22 year old guy from the city I live in, which is pretty cool.

    Same season people here observe good pox players or why streams are getting popular. Its fun to watch skill competitions.

    that just reflects badly on the Americans.

    nearly crushed my tulips and dropped my cheese when I fell out of my clogs at my windmill when I heard that.

    A lot of these sports are won by any nation who cares enough to spend money on it.

    Like going down an ice tunnel backwards while lying intimately on a friend competition.

    Or maybe I'm just upset that Britain is so Bane Shift at the Winter Olympics. Even Australia is better than us, and they wouldn't even know what snow looks like if it wasn't for pictures.

    I personally find the Eskimo Olympics to be more aligned to the original spirit of the games.

    Particularly ear wrestling and pencil jumping.
