I can't wait till this is on TV, I love watching winter sports, especially skiing. I'm so glad I brought my TV back to uni.

How long does it last though? I have a feeling it will mean Neighbours is on it's Christmas holiday.

Anyone else looking forward to the winter olympics?

    Crazy, we were just talking about this at lunch yesterday
    I cannot wait. I like the sports where people can fall. Skating, skiiing, that weird skiiing one where they just jump off the slope.

    My dad always said, if your a skater and you fall, just leave the rink, you've no chance. Go home.

    Whats that one weird sport, kind of like bobsleding but its just the one person. DIdn't they just bring that back the last time because its like really dangerous or am I just making things up.

    The Louge. Yep, it's really dangerous and nearly got banned I think. Not as dangerous as street louge however.

    Falling in sports is great, and crashing in skiing!

    Well I suppose most countries are limited by the lack of winter things, eg snow and ice!

    Allright. I always liked the crazy guy. The one with the egg. Tried to name the sled taloola and they said it sounded like two dollar hooker, then he said that was his mothers name, oh so sad.
