That was the lamest lighting of the torch ever. Fireworks do not equal the flame in my opinion!!

Bring it!

I thought Peter Gabriel was great singing Imagine. I'm really looking forward to the hockey...Funny how some teams are so small, like South Africa's. I didn't think they had snow there...in fact, don't people from there hate snow?

What amazed me the most was that Liechtenstein has only 34,000 people total...and still sends three athletes!! Amazing.

TURIN, Italy - Michelle Kwan cut short her first practice because of a sore groin Saturday and left open the possibility of withdrawing from the Olympics if she’s not 100 percent healthy.

The five-time world champion stopped short of saying she was considering dropping off the U.S. team. But asked directly, she replied:

“I really have to pay attention to how I am feeling these days. Dropping out, it’s not something I want to do, but I have to listen to what my feelings are.”

Kwan said a long plane ride and marching in the opening ceremony caused enough problems for her to skip a run-through one day after arriving in Turin. She planned to practice Sunday after getting treatment for the groin injury, which kept her out of last month’s U.S. championships and forced her to get a medical bye into her third Olympics.

“Physically, if I’m not able to skate, I would give my spot up,” she said.

If she drops out before the Feb. 19 draw for the women’s event, then Emily Hughes, the third-place finisher at the national championships and younger sister of 2002 Olympic champion Sarah Hughes, would take her place.

The nine-time U.S. champion quit the 40-minute workout session with about 15 minutes remaining and smiled at assistant team leader Taffy Holiday when she left the ice. When she skated, though, she looked serious, even dour, and missing three triple flips couldn’t have helped her mood.

When she stood by the sideboards and chatted with team leader Roger Glenn, he could be seen holding her hand or arm several times as if comforting the nine-time U.S. champion.

The 25-year-old Kwan was given a medical bye onto the U.S. team after a groin injury sidelined her for the national championships a month ago. On Jan. 27, she passed a monitoring session conducted by U.S. Figure Skating, and this was her first public practice.

It was not pretty. Her first jump, a smooth triple toe loop, came 13 minutes into the workout. She then landed on two feet on her first triple flip, and fell hard on her next attempt at the jump. Kwan also cut another try into a double flip.

Most of the practice was spent on footwork and spins. At one point, Kwan did her footwork from her free skate and Glenn and U.S. judge Charlie Cyr seemed to be checking the levels of difficulty.

Kwan left the ice without her short program music being played. Her agent, Shep Goldberg, said he believed the music never arrived at the practice rink, but Kwan’s early departure was unexpected — and unlike her.

A silver medalist in 1998 and a bronze winner in 2002, Kwan is the rare skater who has stuck around for three Olympics.

Maybe Michelle will have a better day in practice tomorrow, when she is over jet lag and marching in the Opening Ceremonies.

Speak for yourself. I think curling is damned boring to watch.

We just won our first medal, a gold in moguls from Jennifer Heile (sp?)!

This is going to be a massacre. You may not want to watch.

My prediction: 13-0. Italy gets a grand total of 2 shots all game.
