ooooh yeah! I was gonna mention that, zone. I LOVE that new ski replay technology. It really helps you see how races are won and lost and how much the line the skiier is taking affects their speed.

I was watching curling on CBC, and the Americans were playing against Norway. They won. The funny thing is, every time the Americans threw the stone, the crowd went wild, and the Canadian announcer said, "Well, clearly the American crowd doesn't understand curling, because they just cheered on a terrible shot."

All though it seems that there is more interviews and filler than events, I have some positive comments:

I love the camera that glides along the speedskaters. They do the same thing with the track events for the summer games.
B]

I love that as well -- very very nice. Technology is niiiiiice.

BTW I just wanted to point out that I never became interested in hockey until I found out Bono used to play it a bit when he was a teenager. *cough*

"Very strange looking object you have at the end of your stick.." - Bono

"Bono looks too intense for me." - Rollercoaster Tycoon park guest

"I was drunk, high on him, a shrinking, shadowboxing dwarf following in his foosteps...badly...STARSTRUCK.." - Bono, on meeting Frank Sinatra for the first time

"Bono? Bono is going to tie ropes around my neck? Wait a minute.." - Edge, when shooting the 'Numb' video
