Olympics Edition.....


Okay, am I the only one glued to the Winter Olympics these days?! I'm watching way more of the winter games than I usually do--usually, it's pretty much just figure skating for me, but this year I've been watching some speed skating, some skiing, some snowboarding...just about anything, really (I draw the line at curling....sorry, curlers of the world; I just can't get into it).

Anyway, I'm *so* excited about the men's long program tonight in figure skating. If you missed the short program, ladies, there's some serious hotness on the ice. First off, there's Russia's Plushenko, the defending Olympic gold medalist. He's unbelievably cocky and arrogant--and I just *love* that about him! His jumps are incredible--he's one of the few competitors who does quads. Anyway, I find him very sexy...maybe it's his attitude?!



Then there's American favorite Evan Lysacek--a tall, dark and athletic guy with classic movie-star good looks. Vera Wang designs his costumes, and WOW! Amazing. I love to watch him on the ice. Looks like Grace Kelly should be at his side...



But my favorite?! Oh, how I love American Johnny Weir. Flamboyant, exciting, controversial both on the ice and off....but man, oh, man can that boy skate! His artistry is amazing--he's a beautiful skater, with the skills to match. And when he's not wearing the make-up and bizarre costumes, he is seriously smokin' hot (yes, yes, I know he's gay...whatever!). Anyway, I'd love to see Johnny on top of that podium tonight, even though it's a long-shot (Plushenko and Lysacek would have to seriously screw up their routines).



Anyone else watching the figure skating? If so, who are you rooting for?

Just for fun, here's a vid of Weir's 'exhibition routine' to Lady Gaga's Poker Face--it's *classic* Weir (bizarre make-up and all). Enjoy!

have to admit these days the games are my stress relief! Watching Apollo Ono skate, breathe, smile*sigh
and I have to say Im rooting for Weir in the mens single skating! He'd just amazing though tall dark and handsome is a fascinating combo of hunk and grace. He's almost fodder for a story chracter by just looking at him;)

But the most fun Ive had thus far is the mens snowboarding -pipe. Go Shaun White!!!

Love the Winter games! about the only thing I'm loving right nowabout winter!

Where are the Cannucks?????? lol!
I used to figure skate till I went to university. So, I always watch it, although I prefer the pairs. We're Cannucks, so we're programmed to watch the winter Olympics, in whatever country they're in! Although, I'm not really a huge fan of Alpine downhill...
Speed skating...hockey...OMG hockey is a freaking religion here,and I love it when the rest of the world puts in their papers that the Canadian fans are 'rabid houligans...and I'm not even sure that I spelt that right! lol!
curling..yeah, we're watching it, mostly so hubby and I can yell, hurry hard around a mouthfull of popcorn!

My Olympic crush..well, Alexandre Bilodeu (moguls) is cute, but he's rather young. My REAL Olympic crush is Canadian speedskater Charles Hamlin...oh yeah....let me find you a picture!!!!

I am watching a lot of the Olympics especially figure skating and snowboarding (Shaun White of course) but I have always been a big figure skating fan period every since I was little. But I am enjoying the American athletes who have come back and won gold to defend their titles.

Well, I'm happy for Evan, but Johnny was ROBBED of the bronze, IMO!!

Hi LIT!

I agree with Kristi, Weir was robbed!! He was perfection, outrageous, and wonderful. Robbed of the bronze!
