The Olympics have started!!

We mostly just watched the long- and short-track speed skating events today. Speed skating is very cool; the short-track speed skating looks a lot like velodrome cycling, with everyone bunched up and passing and falling and leaning over and stuff. There's so much excitement, just with the skating - and if you add in the drama surrounding Olivier Jean being knocked aside and then being allowed to race in the final, well, the excitement can be overwhelming.

This may be the laziest weekend ever for us because we're going to be glued to the Olympic coverage all weekend. I think we're basically just going to watch whatever the networks are airing (unless it's hockey). I don't know much about all of the sports but I always have my laptop here and I can look up things like rules or equipment or players or whatever.
