    Talking The 2022 Winter Olympics thread!

    I prefer the Winter Olympics over the summer Olympics. I'm Canadian, and Canada is very strong in the Winter Olympics! I am very disappointed that the NHL players are not there for the men's team. I was looking forward to seeing Crosby and McDavid on the same team. But I can see why people are cautious to go to China right now. With Omicron it makes it even worse.

    The Canadian women's hockey team is always fun to watch. I will be cheering hard for them. They are off to a great start!

    I dig these Dragon goalie pads! I would imagine a lot of pucks will be going through them, so they shouldn't be marked up much either!

    The Canadian women last night looked amazing.

    Could not believe how far their skating has developed.

    It's insane, some of them look like guys with the power in their edge control, and ability to change direction on a dime. So cool to see...

    I take the opposite approach. I'm glad the NHLers aren't there, let the amateurs do it.

    Eric Staal is the captain of team Canada. He was on the Montreal Canadiens 6 months ago. He was an all star in his prime, but he's 37 now. David Desharnais another former Canadiens player is the alternate captain, he was good......about 6 years ago.

    It's more like watching an NHL old timers tournament!

    The Canadian women's team looked incredible! I've never seen a game with so many top corner wrist shot goals!

    The Finn's gave them a pretty good fight the first half of the game, mainly because their goalie was playing really well. Then the Finn's just fell apart like a deck of cards! It was total domination by Canada in the 2nd half of the game.

    I also enjoyed watching the women's snowboarding today. The announcers said that Covid restrictions helped them come up with new tricks, since they didn't compete much and practiced a lot alone last year.

    Definitely a young person’s sport to compete in. . I enjoy seeing the crazy twists and turns they do in the air.

    He’s the only person that seems to give a shit about it. I have no interest in watching two seconds of any of it.

    I wish the NBA would do the same thing and stop sending guys. Who cares at this point, we know we can kick the shit out of everybody in basketball. We still beat the world, and we do it without our best players. Rarely ever has the US sent the absolute best players in the NBA to the Olympics anyway.

    I love when people freak out and laugh when the US loses a game of basketball. It’s not even the best players that are there. And nobody wins every single game forever.

    We made our point with basketball a long time ago.

    Anyway I just think these pro leagues need to stop sending their players to the Olympics. It should be an amateur event.
