    What a joke. What I don't understand though is why so many people traveled there anyway, it is no surprise they weren't ready, it's been on the news for how long? I guess the athletes and media didn't have much of a choice...but DAMN...I'd be so upset, I'd just go home.

    Russia....FAIL Putin....FAIL

    And what are we to expect at tonight's ceremony? Probably....FAIL

    Then again, Dogecoin (Bitcoin alternative) sent the Jamaican Bobsled team and an Indian Luger because they were low on funds.

    So people go places without researching what they are getting into? That's smart....these people need to wake up and realize America is great and be thankful for what they have (assuming they are Americans).

    You guys need to watch the "real sports" episode on sochi. It's nuts.... The expense is insane while people in the surrounding towns are starving

    Sporting accomplishments are there despite the $50B Russian investment and unfinished accomodations.

    The Dutch skating team scored a clean sweep on the 5km speed skating! YESS

    Why the hell were the Russians awarded this anyway? I don't get it. If they didn't get it ready they shouldn't be allowed to host.

    I dunno, Putin pushed hard, this year's games are nicknames "Putin's Games" because of everything he did to get the Olympics there. They were awarded as host back in 2007. After 7 years they still aren't ready....it's all on Putin if you ask me

    it's some sort of advertising campaign from the beer company

    i'm annoyed they didn't air the curling on F2A TV here.. curling <3

    most of the courses seem overly difficult too this year, people bombing out all over the place.

    sleep schedule is all screwed up since nbcsn is broadcasting live throughout the night. i am thinking the 5-ring opening ceremony glitch was more of a hack and less of a bug.
