Will you be watching the Olympics?

The Olympics start tomorrow. Will you be watching?

B.E.:  Oh, I'll definitely be watching.  I've already been catching some of the preliminary qualifying competitions in speed skating and snow boarding.  Man, that Shawn White is inspiring.  And, of course, one of the speed skaters trained at my old alma mater, so I've gotta root for him.

I totally don't do winter sports myself - unless you count that one mistaken night where me and my friends played a game of broom-ball.  (Imagine a frozen, iced-over backyard laid out as a rink and a bunch of semi-drunk computer nerds using brooms to whack at a dodgeball made rock hard by the sub-zero temps.)  It was fun, but not to be repeated - especially at my age.


JB:  I won't be watching much. If I happen to catch figure skating, I'll watch, but that'll probably be it for me.

I tried skiing once….slid backwards all the way to the bottom of the hill. Enough said.




Tell us Killer Friends: Will you be watching the Olympics? What are some of your favorite sports to watch? Have you ever participated in any Winter sports?

Yes to watching - love the winter Olympics (and there's a woman on the Canadian Snow Boarding team that is from right around the corner, I'll be cheering her on - Alex Duckworth, if anyone's interested).

No to winter sports. One word: Brrrrr!!! Besides which I am not very coordinated when it comes to sports!

I'll keep an eye out for Alex for you, Janet, but I can't promise I'll be rooting for her over the U.S. girls. (I do usually hope the Canadians do well, though.) And I'm right there with you on the cold. Today, the winter sport is staying warm - inside the house.
