Yay I can't wait for the Olymbics!  I love the ice skating lol plus the curling was great last year (I still remember watching the Final) so I'll be watching that again this year.

Opening ceremonies of things like this and even the world cup usually are boring and drag on for ages

I think we will get a medal in both the mens and womens curling.  The men habe won 4, lost 1 and the women have won 3, lost 1.  Out of the nine matches you play they say you need to win 6 to get through, so both are on course.

I saw Curling for the first time day before yesterday and although I am hardly a Curling critic I think both British teams are definitely medal material.

If at first you don't succeed, you fail.
