The Olympic Torch

As Week 1 of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics comes to a close, I thought I’d share 10 things I’ve learned:

  • There’s nothing funner than watching Women’s Moguls at the gelateria with your honey and an Amaretto and Sweet Vermouth cocktail.
  • Pup is completely transfixed by the nightly pyrotechnics show. She better not start playing with matches.
  • Trying to get into a free Wilco concert can be likened to being trapped below decks when the Titanic is going down- can be, but probably shouldn’t.
  • George Clooney is as elusive as he is handsome.
  • Forget patriotism- the whole world was rooting for Shen and Zhao.
  • Colbert said it best- Canadians are chant whores.
  • The Americans are cleaning up and Canadians are none to pleased, though you’d never know.
  • Vancouver police humor themselves by doing the Hippie Hippie Stomp.
  • Nobody rocks an Olympic team uniform like an Eastern European.
  • There are distinct snickers among the media when there’s mention of Estonia.
  • I guess you can have a Winter Olympics without snow.
