    Apparently if you tell the IOC that you will throw as much money as necessary (or in Russia's case, 3x as much) at preparations, you can get the Olympics.

    Even if they are dirty, which I just assumed, why there? Why a ********? Who would rather go to a ******** than somewhere decent? I would think that the side deals are relatively equal all around.

    Has anyone looked at our group for hockey? The other three teams have the exact same flags, and all four countries are red white and blue. Thought it was kind of funny

    If I was a spectator there, this would be enough to make me go home early. Scary stuff.

    Re: ***Official Olympics Thread***

    To all of you curling fanatics, NBC hired former Olympian John Benton (was the lead on the 2010 Olympic team skipped by John Shuster, Team USA's skip this year) to announce the matches. He's one of the better announcers and you will probably enjoy his take and insight.

    It's amazing to me that they built a 40,000 seat venue just for the opening and closing ceremonies. Why not hold some Olympic events in there?
