2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics!

I'm surprised no one's started this yet, but I'll start...

So uhh... Who's left to watch when most of everybody have already crashed and burnt?

Re: 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics!

Not sure what you're asking. BUT, the buzz around town is exciting. I plan on being in the downtown core for the opening ceremony. With hockey being the top sport of interest.

If it is.... I blame the Hippies of Van. Because they will be out whining and bitching. I think some Cartman-esque justice needs to be exacted in Vancouver.

Re: 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics!

While we shouldn't compare the opening ceremonies of the winter Olympics to those of the summer Olympics, its difficult not to and in doing so, I'm already underwhelmed. I know the venue (BC Place) couldn't be more lame.

It will be interesting to see how the entire Olympics pan out. Record warmth in the region, little snow, plenty of rain and some events being held at sea level. All pose a new set of challenges for the athletes.

I like the summer olympics better..... just because they have gymnastics and that's the main thing I love to watch. (I was a gymnast from age 5-18!) let's go 2012!

BC Place is only one of many venues, it will be interesting to see what has been done to update that area.

BC Place is where the opening ceremonies are being held. I'll be back there for the autoshow in April. Hopefully they've made some MUCH needed improvements to it but even still, its a structure past its lifespan.

The facility in Richmond with the straw ceiling looks very impressive.
