    So, yeah, I'm looking forward to watching the events as much as possible. But I always get bummed around this time of year because Canada generally sucks at the Olympics. I mean, if we win Gold in men's and women's hockey (I'm not sure of either this year), the whole nation is happy, even if we don't one other medal. This is a sports hating nation.

    Who is watching the opening ceremonies? I hope I'm not!

    Sometimes I wish I had a Tv. I wouldnt mind watching louge, curling, speed skating, bobsled, and some of the downhill skiing ones, like the jumps those are cool. Im guessing there's probably more, but I forget. I dont know weather to buy a Tv though. I really want to watch the sopranos.

    yeah man, the latest ESPN Mag talks about some of the funny shit that has gone down in the Village.

    I'm gonna type some out, just for you guys:

    ---

    The Olympic Village may be an enclave of athletic purity, but it's not quite Chariots of Fire. Oz is more like it, with underground economies, scandalous liasons and messy culture clashes. To survive, you gotta know the rules. Some US vets give us the inside scoop. - Carrie Sheinberg


    DO: Bring Spare Uniforms
    Team jackets get traded in the Village like cigarettes in the joint. Sometimes they're sold outright. A cool grand for a uni is hard to resist for a true amateur from Belarus.

    DON'T: Bother With Change
    "Everything is free," says Nelsond Diebel, the 1992 breaststroke gold medalist. "You press the button on a Coke machine and a bottle comes out. It really irritated me when I got back to the real world and that didn't work."

    DO: Request Coed Accommodations
    "We were rooming with some bashful ski jumpers," says 1994 alpine skier Eva Twardokens. "We decided to wash our sexiest panties and hang them all over the bathroom. Unfortunately, their coach made us take them down."

    DON'T: Import Affection
    "I tried to sneak a girl over the fence around 2am," says Trace Worthington, who skied freestyle moguls in 1994. "All of a sudden, there were guys droppoing out of trees with guns pointed at me."

    DO" Play the Culture Card
    In 1994, the German team members convinced organizers that beer was an integral part of their heritage. Result: they got kegs on tap in their secton of the Village.

    DON'T: Go Beer-for-Beer With American Snowboarders
    "There was a huge party in 2002 after Danny Kass, Ross Powers and JJ Thomas won," says a US coach who asked to remain anonymous. "It got to be 5am, and we were supposed to bring them to the Today Show set. There was no way the guys were going to make it. They had to do it the next day."

    DO: Was Your Hands
    "A stomach bug hit the village in 2002," says aerials silver medalist Joe Pack. "People were barfing all over the place. Nobody knew what caused it, but it was preventing athletes from competing. I couldn't get out of there fast enough."

    DO: Keep Your Dignity
    A gold medal isn't the same if you don't win it yourself. "Two drink German bobsledders were in a bar wearing their gold medals," says a female alpine skier from the 1994 Games. "I asked to see one, and the next thing I know, they're offering a medal for sex. That's when I realized Olympic dreams had limits."

    DON'T: Forget to Bring Your Putter
    In 1998, Toyota promised a car if someone aced nine holes on the Village putting green. So many athletes managed to do it that the automaker had to stage a putt-off.
