I have seen lots of highs and lows, and learned more about half pipe and snow cross than anyone every needs to know...lol Warning: here is my take on what I have seen. And it ain't all pretty. First and foremost. Boo, to the Canadian Hockey player who showed to the world that winning is everything and that sportsmanship is not alive in her heart. What a bad message to say to the up and coming hockey youth. I hope Canada takes her to task. Yay, to the other Russian skater, the little one who wasn't part of the "war" between two Russian juggernauts. She may not have been as good, but she did a great job considering how left out she must have felt.
Yay, to the USA's Jessie Diggins, for giving it her all in the cross country match. What a wonderful competitor and person.
Boo, to NBC for putting Lindsey Vonn on TV too much. By the time she skied out of her last gate, most of the world couldn't have cared less if she won or not. It was almost like they were trying to create drama at every turn. I would have liked to have seen more TV time on some of the more obscure athletes, from all the countries. Yay, to the show Olympic Ice! What a delight to watch Scott and Tanith tell us all we needed to know about skating and I very much loved hearing from Tara L. and Johnny W. spin their ideas too. Very knowledgeable the 4 of them.
Big Boo, on something that irritated the hell out of me. I know it will seem silly but does every girl in the snowboard events have to wear her hair like Chloe Kim? It is like they saw her and thought, oooo, I like that and I will copy her too! No individuality and it just ticked me off. I started to think their helmets came with two strands of hair attached....lol
