    So its finally the time for winter Olympics! Snowboarders already started today! Anybody looking forward to any particular sports?

    I cant wait for ice hockey, ski jumping, biathlon, skeleton and bobsleigh!

    Skeleton is beast. I'm actually interested to see the slope style as well. Probably catch some hockey.

    Not interested and not supporting it by watching. The latest round of discriminatory laws in the country are enough for me to boycott the entire thing.

    I'd be a bit more outraged about the Olympic committee being bought with drug money from a Russian Gangster. Intolerance is just par for the course there.

    @gerardfraser - you just described the most idyllic time I can imagine. I would LOVE to be in Canada, watching all the Olympics, snow all around me, supporting the hockey team!

    I'm mostly looking forward to the hockey, of course, we really should have beaten Canada in the semi-final 4 years ago! Russia will be really hyped for this, of course, it'll be great to watch.

    I hate how the BBC is constantly trying to put a downer on the games by going on and on about potential terrorism and high security and whatnot. Its almost as if they want something to happen so they can get more viewers and get some experts in that'll go "haa haa! told you sh!t would hit the fan!". How about make an effort to get in the spirit of the games ? In all probability absolutely nothing will happen with the exception of teams and individuals doing some sport, some of them do poorly and others do well and bring home trophies.

    Is nobody covering it in Holland? BBC 2 will be showing it all day tomorrow and sunday, havent checked the rest of the days. I am surprised Eurosport isnt covering it apart from daily diaries.

    Might be a long shot, but you could try some UK's VPN, if nothing else could be found.
