Rome and its weather sounds like Texas. All the Northerners love to come down here for the winter.

Anja - Moguls is downhill skiing with lots of bumps. Jars the hell out of someone’s knees.

Au, yeah that sounds painful..!
And we already won 4 medals so far! A gold, silver and bronze for the ladies on the 3000 meters speed skating, and a silver one for shorttrack..

Awesome Anja!

I'm currently watching figure skating. You always feel bad if they fall.

We make it a drinking game, every time someone falls we take a swig. I do feel bad for them, though.

Congrats, Anja, on your medals! Tonight will probably be the first time I can actually watch the Olympics because I work every evening pretty much. :/

I haven't watched a second of it..
I'll hear about the winnings on the radio, or on the internet.

I've caught some snowboarding too. It amazes me that these athletes can do all those tricks. How do you even try that for the first time? I'd be so nervous.

Please don't believe this though;



Quote:
Ice skating is not an important mode of transportation in the Netherlands. Biking? Yes. But ice skating? No. Because it hardly ever freezes in the Netherlands. When it does, it’s not cold enough/cold long enough to put more than a thin crust of ice on water. If you’re lucky (and we haven’t been in the past years), there’s at most one day/one week per year that ice skating is possible - and even then you won’t be skating on the Amsterdam canals...

I saw an article about that. Don't know what Katie was thinking or where she got that info. Oy.

I've got a friend on Facebook that posts the results each day...sometimes multiple times a day (spambox ), but it's the only place where I hear stuff about it. Never listening to the radio anyway (spotify of youtube mostly) and we don't even have a tv connection We just watch stuff from a USB stick or discs.

We have a professional ice rink where the olympic skaters can train, or sometimes they will go abroad for training..
For recreative ice-skating, we have indoor icerinks.

Okay, I admit to pulling a Katie C. & was thinking y’all were talking about skiing. I know ice skating happens in ice rinks.
