Default olympics

do you like summer or winter olympics more, and why?

i personally like the winter more for the skiing, ludging, snowboarding, and figure skating. the only thing i like to watch in the summer is gymnastics.

Man, covert! As an English teacher, your posts are KILLING me!!!

But, I have to agree. Winter olympics for sure. Although, the women's gymastics teams have FINALLY started getting cuter....

By the way, Marvin, I just saw your sig.....EXCELLENT use of alliteration! However, change I to Bob, Barry or Bill and you'll complete it better....LOL!

I'm going to say winter because it just seems more exciting. The skiing, snowboarding, bobsledding, luge, ect... Just seems to be more action in the winter sports.

So when they call you a Spelling Nazi, you can reply: "Yes, a professional one at that!" LOL

I like both seasonal Olympics but I'm partial to the winter games too. A few things have me a bit peeved at the olympics this year though: 1) The US team bumped an athelete who qualigfied for the team for a past athelite who did not compete in qualifications for the team. This got remedied because Kwan dropped out and the other is getiing brought in, but it never should have happened in the first place.; 2) The IOC ousted their VP, an American, and made no qualms that although he was qualified and doing an acceptable job, the EU is firmly in charge of the IOC and they have a lot of anti-American and anti-war sentiments. Is that really where they want to lead the olympics too?; 3) The IOC revamped the scoring methods for the figure skating following the big cheating scandal of the last games. The new method is not only stupid but does not solve a cheating problem at all! The problem was not how the scores are derived but who was doing the cheating (France and Russia - nothing new there! Recall the 70's basketball fiasco?).

It's about to the point that I do not want to watch the games.

Yup! And HIGHLY paid at that....

Speaking of the winter olympics (which I voted for) What do you think about Michelle Kwan pulling out of the olympics??? Stage fright, or serious injury??? She had a LOT of attention on her the last couple of weeks...lots of pressure to perform, so to speak.
