    Default 2010 Winter Olympics

    Anyone interested in these games?

    Hasn't appealed to me in the past but may take a look this time.

    Yep, I’ll be watching the speed skating.

    500m and 1000 metre speed skating; v.fast. The girls have very shapely backsides and lycra suits.

    Skeleton; complete sawdustbrained nutters slide down the bobsleigh run lying face down on a tea tray at 150 kph with their chin hitting the ice every few yards.

    Shorttrack skating; always ends in mass crashes

    Ski jump; real idiots this lot, but when it goes wrong it isn’t funny at all

    WTF - PGS? Waste of an event - big air is MUCH better.
