Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics

So the 2010 Winter Olympics are in my hometown, and it is a little crazy here. Just finished watching the opening ceremonies which were pretty good, nothing mind blowing but well put together, and the "Great One" Wayne Gretzky, great hockey player to ever live (in my opinion) lit the torch which made sense as I could only think of a couple others who would deserve that honour, my other candidate, I would have liked to see Michael J. Fox.

I will not be attending any live events, would really only like to see the short track speed skating or any hockey game, but the ticket prices for those are ridiculous, so I will be watching them from home in HD.

Here is what I am looking forward to:

- Ski Jumping
- Speed Skating especially Short Track
- Luge (my condolences go out to the family of Norad Kumaritashvili who died during a training run today)
- Snowboarding
- Skeleton
- Bobsleigh
- Hockey (Obviously)

I'm sure I missed something but these are the main events I am looking forward to.

Vancouver is a beautiful city and I'm glad it gets to be seen on the worlds stage, if you have never been, you should plan a visit.
