I don't know how curling and the biathlon are sports

See, I don't think biathlon is even close to curling. Sure, shooting is more of a skill than anything, but cross country skiing, even at a modest pace, is pretty intensive work, yet alone as fast as they do in the Olympics

 

LOL @ Scott, who pretty much ended any 'debate'

Biathlon is even more demanding than just cross country skiing. I had a friend that used to compete and was told about having to control your breathing and heart rate so that you could actually make the shot. If you are out of breath the gun bounces around.

Despite lame curling being on, yesterday was a nice day to watch the winter games:

 

-Shani Davis looked great.

-Apolo Ohno is fun to watch.

-I can't imagine the pain Lindsey Vonn was in when landing after that huge jump at the end of the downhill course.

-The only person Shaun White competes with is himself.

 

Suck it, Canada.

You helped end the debate by not responding to what I said once I made a valid point. I don't get you guys but whatever

 

Curling sucks

We stooped arguing with you because your points are invalid!

^ Not to mention, you can't get your facts straight, and were insulting to Joe.....

 

 

You need to read a couple pages back. This all started with parktrips saying that curling doesn't require you to be fit. And then I said don't be so quick to make assumptions about something like that..Then some people disagreed with me and backed up parktrips on his possibly ignorant statement.

 

From page 8-9:

of course, I mean realistically there aren't many winter sports a normal person couldn't do, and at least Curling requires absolutely no physical fitness!
You should try it first before you make a statement like that!
I agree..

 

You simply piggybacked RBOrrell's opinion, and then proceeded to argue like a drunk at a sports bar over a subject you apparently don't even care about.

 

Curling sucks

 

I'm done. Now where's my gold medal?

How is my point invalid?

I said curling might take a lot of physical fitness to be really good at it, and you shouldn't make ignorant assumptions on things. That's my point. How hard is it to understand? Apparently really hard for you who are challenging me on a simple statement that most normal people would agree with.

Whatever though I will let you (beemerboy) sit and think about how clever and funny you are for beating me in an argument by not responding to anything I said and insulting me. Real mature

^I heard Shaun White just signed a celebrity endorsement deal with Chick-Fil-A.

Maybe you should *chill* and watch some porn or something.

So happy for USA getting gold in figure skating tonight! I didn't want that cocky Russian guy to win. Also pretty cool that the first Japanese skater ever to get a metal got his tonight!

 

However, I am pissed that I foolishly turned on my computer and was greeted on my homepage with the spoiler for who won. I am not going to keep beating that dead horse too much though.

 

Now off to cry, once again, while they play the National Anthem.

I'm kind of thinking that other USA chick is even hotter though and she now has more medals!!!!

 

Mancuso is undoubtedly better looking, but Lindsey Vonn is the better skier. At least in downhill.

Lysacek just "wanted it" more and skated a better routine. Plushenko's attitude seems to be some kind of character he's playing. I think the main arrogant thing he did was to only train for 6 months. That's not a lot of time.
