During the Men's combined they were saying that the Olympic committee is talking about dropping it. Combined is the very first Alpine skiing event ever to be in the Olympics. I don't get it. Skiing to me IS the Winter Olympics. That and the bobsled, luge and skeleton. But we now get Curling? Whoo Hoo!!! Now there's a sport. WTF.

They were probably at women figure skating. Where else can you get to see a double flying camel toe :D ?


Or the men's, checking out the Boy Tonto triple Axel moose knuckle.


Wow, I didn't know they still had mens skating, thanks for the warning ;).

oh dear. :lol: :lol: I noticed the same thing about the men's DH and the empty stands, what a shame, that is absolutely the premier event of the Olympics for me.

thankfully they're showing a lot of alpine skiing, the rest is all skating and fluff this year. In Sochi I remember there were 4 channels on cable TV of full event coverage all day. Maybe it's still on Directv? Comcast has nothing extra.
