All things Olympic, be it the games themselves, economic impact, political comments, rants, raves . . . anything and everything Olympian goes here.

I love the bump that curling has gotten since the Olympics. Well deserved.

Really don't see how Gordy was embarrassment. He was shown supporting the Olympians at many events proudly supporting BC. He was smiling and a great BC ambassador. Steven Harper sure didn't seem to have nearly the enthusiasm Gordon Campbell did whenever they showed him at events. Say what you will about Gordon and his politics, but I disagree with him being an embarrassment during the Olympics.

Well in Harper's defense he probably didn't have as many martinis in him as Gordo did.

Thanks for posting the youtube video. You can see how much Torval and Dean changed the sport, and how much it has progressed in the last 26 years. Much more athletic than it once was. It is funny to see the 'old' scoring again, before the scandal in SLC that brought about the change.

I am not an ice-dancing fan, but watching that Torvill and Dean skate, which is considered the "gold standard" - I prefer Virtue and Moir by a long shot.
