asweome thread Benzo. I love watching luge (and bobsled). seriously.

some Alberta based company is offering $1,000,000 to split between the luger (lugist?) and the Canadian luge program if someone wins a gold medal.

I wanna see that sport where they cross country ski but have a rifle attached to them. Instead of aiming for the targets I'd rather them use it on each other though.

I love watching the Olympics. More of a summer guy, but lots of the winter sports are cool to watch.... i guess there's something about the best athletes in the world that literally give every ounce of their effort in these competitions. Even sports that i don't normally watch can be compelling to me.

Bailey Not carrying the torch? Yes I do know he is a Summer Olympian but the most decorated Canadian Olympian should carry that torch dammit.

I call out West Coast Bias

I thought it was supposed to be a surprise, but whoever it is I know it will be underwhelming
maybe Nash or Wayne

how is Nash underwhelming?

He's from there (well Victoria), is probably the best athlete to come out of that area, is popular all over the world and is a Canadian Olympian himself.

I'm ment whoever they pick will be underwhelming, but Nash or Wayne would be good choices
Suns probably have a game though

Wayne won't get picked he wasn't even an olympian. I'm sure it'll be an oldschool gold medalist that most people don't even know (Nancy Green) or a person that really represents "canadian historical fabric" like an indian chief of some sort or Rick Hansen
