Man the ice dancing is impressive even if it's not the most thrilling sport.

Also the weather is brutal on the slopestyle. I figure if you can finish the course you've got a shot at a medal!

The short form ice elemental summoning was disappointing as usual, but i'm looking forward to the long form. Something about the increased risk of the elementals breaking free and devouring their summoners really ups the stakes.
Aside from the Jamaican team... i cannot believe they even sent a team after placing last/dead in two successive Winter Olympics. It's like they're not even trying.

The women's slopestyle was a gong show. They really should have rescheduled.

They were in a way lucky the weather was so bad that women weren't even trying the hardest tricks. A little more borderline and they could have killed someone. Instead they all basically rode to survive and still only about 8 of the people managed to complete 1 run out of 2 without falling.
Tatts early in SH game: Hmm, so if I'm liberal I should have voted Nein to make sure I'm president? I'm not that selfish

Tatts later in SAME game: I'm going to be a corrupt official. I have turned from my liberal ways, and now will vote against the pesky liberals. Viva la Fascism.
When Venge's turn comes, he will get a yes from Mess, Dolmen, Nevyn and Venge but a no from the 3 fascists and me. **** with my Government, and i'll **** with yours

It was definitely that. I'm like...if the cameras can't see through that wind and snow...how is anyone meant to do that and pull tricks?

I think they are riding the line for rescheduling as this seems to be very much what PyeongChang is LIKE in the winter some years, unavoidably so...so rescheduling may not accomplish anything as it would just shove things out of the Olympics window? Just a guess.

Even though there were delays, they managed to find a window to do the men's event.

They have weeks to get it in during the olympics and aren't using the course for much else. I got the sense they let TV scheduling/tickets/money drive the decision.

The only other real scheduling constraint would be other snowboard events the same athletes have to compete in.

Yeah at first I was thinking "these girls aren't really doing much in the way of flashy trucks compared to the men yesterday..." And then I realised why.

Iíve enjoyed the Chinese Downhill event but still think something was lost when they imposed armor and weapon standards.

Bloody hell. Chloe Kim just obliterated the competition. The rest didnt even come close. 98.25 versus the next best score of 89.something.
She went and she left me like litter. She took all future summers with her. I lost all my money cuz I tried to bribe her. Now I can only afford an amateur sniper.

That Luge is insane. I kind of want to try it but at the same time I think I'd be terrified of it!

Finally got to watch some skiing as well which I've not really seen yet. The downhill and shalom and whatnot are my favourites!
