The only thing I care about is the medal count. We are gonna beat you Canadians at your own game, hockey gold will be ours!! Seriously, the snowboarding superpipe events will go to the USA-again.

CANADA IS GOING TO KICK A$$ WE WILL DOMINATE, I DONT EVEN NEED THIS APP, ALL I KNOW IS CANADA IS GONNA ME GETTIN THE GOLDS.

U-S-EH!

Cana-duh!

Im only kidding, I love my neighbors to the north, but good luck, you're gonna need it.

Between the m.yahoo.com/olympics site and nbcolympics.com, I am all set. I like the layout of the yahoo site a little better, but you can get good tv schedule info from the nbc site.

I just tried both sites. The NBC site refuses to allow me to register my settings. It keeps telling me I have not filled out the zip code field (even though I have and it's not a required field. Filed a bug report with them over that. Video is nice touch here.

Y! site is FAST and less cluttered than the NBC site. Will see how it goes this week.

We Canadians shall crush our enemies and drink their blood! I also wouldn't mind if we won a few medals at these games too...

Hey, maybe they'll have Bob and Doug McKenzie lite the cauldron! That would be the ticket!!!

Take off, to the Great White North!

Which get's me thinking, I heard on NBC that some music stars will be part of the opening......

So perhaps Sarah Mac, Rush, Bryan Adams....who else do you think.

I've been trying all day and cannot seem to get the referenced yahoo link to work...anyone else having problems?

My device can't find m.yahoo.com/olympics

Here's the message I'm getting:

HTTP Error 404: Not Found
The page you are trying to load cound not be found. Please try loading differtent page.

Any suggestions?
TIA

Nevermind - had one upper case letter in the address.
Tks Anyway

I agree (with the other comment); I basically only care about the medal count. I watched some of it over the weekend like the Bi-Athelon, and some Figure Skating, but after a couple of hours... blah. Snooze-fest 2010, I can't help it. LOL Not for me I guess. Kinda like baseball or golf for me. I like to know what's going on, but I don't watch. I checked the listings, and nothing coming up that I'd REALLY like to see either. This Yahoo! page is perfect for guys like me. Thanks Yahoo!
