Vancouver Olympics - Part II - ATTENTION: SPOILERS
 
Kim Yu-Na is amazing.

Canadians are so good at hockey, you'd almost think they invented the game.

Olympics are fun.

Please continue...

The womens skating final was one of the rare times it seems everyone in the top 6 got exactly the placement they deserve. :up:

you know what i find funny?

that commercial with Michael J. Fox, Ryan Reynolds, Kim Cattrall, and all them. the commercial where they talk about how wonderful B.C. is and they show all that glorious scenery with wine country and orcas?

their speaking bits were so obviously filmed in front of a green screen in LA that it makes me giggle a bit.

I'd say yes, except stupid NBC never showed the long program of the Finnish gal who came in at 6th place! Think she moved up from 10th place and was actually 4th in the long program, beating Miki Ando and Mirai Nagasu.

Kim Yu-Na was a beast!

I'm not quite sure how I'm expected to work today with the US Men's Hockey team playing in the semis at noon. Thankfully the bosses are all gone so I guess I won't have to work. :wink:

Also, I am going to go through serious withdrawals after this weekend. Damn you Olympics! On the plus side, I will get more sleep.

Was she the skater who came in 5th? That was SO BIZARRE. They mentioned Rachael was in second, but didn't say who was in first - then of course you saw her name when they flashed the standings, and then at the end with the final standings, they skipped over #6!

WTF, NBC? Rude.

I'm so pleased with the results. Yu-Nam Kim was amazing. I felt really bad for Mao Asada - she makes history with TWO triple axels, and she still can't beat Yu-Na. Mirai was soooo good - I was wondering if she'd slip into third place, but glad Joannie got the bronze.

And yay for Rachael - she's not my favorite skater, but she skated a great program and was clearly so proud of herself, and rightly so.

Also, is her name Yu-Na Kim, or Kim Yu-Na? And why was the arena announcer pronouncing it "Ya-Na" last night at the medal ceremony?

MrPryck2U 02-26-2010 11:51 AM

If Slovakia beat Canada tonight in Hockey, that would be totally fucked up. If the US lost to the Finns, no one would give a rat's ass. (Well, I would and I'm sure others too.) Obviously, NBC wants Canada/US for the Gold. Those ratings would be off the chart. I'm looking forward to today's games. :hyper:


The Canadian chickies should have taken their celebration party elsewhere, but they should be allowed in the Closing Ceremonies. Next time skip the stogies. Mega gross.

I think the way we say names in north America it would be Yu-Na Kim, I think Kim is the surname.

I was watching an online feed of the skating finals because I am on the west coast and couldn't handle the 3-hour tape delay - (Bulgarian TV rocks!) - there were a few exciting performances in the second-to-last group and I was so looking forward to seeing them on the "big screen" later - was so bummed that NBC didn't show them. (And yes, very uncool that NBC didn't even mention that Laura Lepisto finished 6th).

Anyway, last night reminded me of why I used to love figure skating so much - fantastic night. I saw Kim Yu-Na win Worlds last year in LA, and after seeing the reaction of the Korean fans there, can only imagine the pressure she is under - amazing. (And boy does that woman fly across the ice - she's like a rocket [a gorgeous, ethereal rocket]).

Oh, and that dude in the medals ceremony butchered a lot of names - I mean, you're handing out freakin' Olympic medals, learn to say their damn names.
