    Heck with the super toliet bowl. Ready for some real athletes. The one winter sport I like is CURLING. Besides the traditional 5 person teams, Mens and Womems also this year will be a Mixed Doubles. Two person teams conprised of a Man and Woman. Also Bob Sleading is another of my Will Watch sports. Speed skating is the third one for me. Whats your flavor ??

    I enjoy watching curling, bob sled, luge, ski high jump, speed skating, and hockey. I like the winter olympics better than the summer.

    I just hope our American team stands for our national anthem. Just how will that be taken by other nations to see American disrespect for the flag and nation

    I thought they were using torque converters

    They do .......from the Flintstone Mobile ....... You are the only one besides me that caught that.

    Notice the special Do-Hickie (handle) for turning. Instead of a shaft for the transmission it is for the foot to fit into.

    I read something to the effect that the Russian athletes are not going to be participating, due to rampant drug use for performance enhancement, and not being able to pass the drug tests.

    I'm sure they will stand.
    Unlike the NFL, they are athletes, not performers.
    Every one of them considers themselves extremely fortunate and proud to be there.
