I'll be glad when the Olympics are finally over, Vancouver calms down, roads and parking open up and Canada can stop all this rah rah flag waving, aren't we great bollox and get back the quiet insecure lot they really are. Roll on Sunday.

A bit too much for your gentle constitution?

I'll echo the sentiments for different reasons, get the damned thing off the TV.

Me too, sick of all the 'updates' on Breakfast TV, I especially love the way when Canada was 5th they put it on the newsflash but when they are 4th they dont show who is 5th!

Well I had been hoping it may be an excuse to have a drink every night but since OH said no way I decided it was not really worthwhile

I am loving the winter Olympics. So many hair-raising sports , and I am a huge hockey fan and go to watch our local Junior A team every week.

I am peeved that I have missed the figure skating because it's on too late. Let's hope there is a round-up repeat of all the sports on TV soon

GO CANADA GO

You watch breakfast TV?

Good God.

But on topic, can't be over soon enough for me.

Yes, but there's no need for that, I had to wait 20mins last Saturday just to get a seat at my favourite conveyor-belt sushi bar. I just want to get some peace and quiet back.
