So far I have enjoyed the snowboarding and curling the most. Only so much cold weather sports I can handle watching ha ha. smile

Speed skating on shorter track was pretty crazy.

What's more Canadian than hockey??? We are Texans but have a cottage about two hours west of Ottawa where we go in Summer. We brought a souvie hockey stick and puck to a friend this past year and he couldn't have been happier! A Texas Mexican loving a hockey stick grin

I love the ice skating, especially couples.

I was very lucky to work for American Express Travel in 1980 and worked Placid Winter Games. Seeing Eric Heiden get all 5 Gold was incredible. Got to see every sport at least once-- it was before Xtreme though. Ski jump (in person) was amazing. But of course, the highlight was the Miracle game. Then 2 days later, I was at the USA/Finland game and saw the Medal ceremony. And, it was Scott Hamilton's rookie year. I will never forget....
And, while I lost my voice screaming USA, USA..... know that I stand and sing "O Canada" very proudly (after living in Toronto).
When might we see Belize in the Parade of Nations at the Winter Games?????

Methinks once Reaper becomes Coach of the BNHC, there will certainly be a team fielded

and only slightly off topic - :P

Rumor has it that Pedro spent last weekend in the Mountain Pine Ridge, training for the 2012 Summer Olympics, competing in the triathlon

My favorites are the snowboarder cross, hockey, and the downhill skiing.
