Let's kick off the Winter Olympics! The opening ceremonies were very entertaining, but I must say the Olympic Cauldron looks like it was designed by stoners. I wonder how many college kids are going to take photos of each other taking hits off of it.

Sad story about the Georgian Luger posted in the other thread. I thought the tributes during the opening ceremonies were very nice.

Who are Redszoners' favorites in these games? I root for the US first and foremost, but like the Austrians (former home for two years) and the UK team (for my wife's family) if the US doesn't have a favorite.
