  1. NBC gets a fair amount of flack for their Olympic coverage. No matter what you think, they always put together an incredible closing montage! https://vid.me/dMTo
  2. Exactly! I would have preferred if Kim would have won the gold, but Sotnikova was very athletic in her two skates, and athleticism is more rewarded than artistry in the new scoring system. Somehow, artistry needs to be valued at a higher level, but I'm not sure how that happens in the new system. I was sad that none of the top women had any long, gorgeous spiral sequences in their programs (like Kwan, Cohen, etc. always included). Now it's just element, element, element... and the musicality and artistry suffer. I feel like something really needs to be adjusted in the men's scoring system
  3. Does anyone know who will be hosting the Closing Ceremony tomorrow night for NBC? Mary Carillo would be a nice surprise! I hope the editing of the Closing Ceremony is nowhere near as stupid as what they did in Vancouver. That was embarrassing.
  4. The Salt Lake games were one of my favorite Olympics! Here is a quick recap via the ever popular NBC closing credits montage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OhMOHMu5oc Sadly, Michelle Kwan (my favorite skater) missed winning the gold medal in Ladies Figure Skating a second time, but she delivered one of her most memorable and beautiful programs ever in the figure skating gala:
  5. According to the bid book it will be used on days 7, 8, 11, 12, 14, 15, and 16. So that would make it both mens and womens semi-finals, and both the finals. I just thought it was going to be the Final itself. Thanks everyone! I'm glad the stadium is going to see more matches; it seems to do the venue better justice than just the finals of each event!
  6. Wow! It is certainly a great looking stadium. I have one question about the new Wembley. Will it host just the finals of the football competition in 2012, or will it host other matches thoughout the tournament as well? I know that the football competition will be spred out, all through the UK, but will Wembley be used for other later matches (the semis, etc.) as well? It seems like such a great venue; it would be a shame to only host one match.
