  1. The Olympics had the opposite effect on me. I missed a ton of my favorites, and now I'm having Olympic withdrawals.

  2. Aack! How can you say that? The Games were amazing this year! And the hockey, my god...

    I'm with Grandma J, I watched so much Olympic coverage on Eurosport that I'm way behind on every other area of my life. Luckily I heard an announcement that scaling Mt. Laundry is being considered for the next Summer Olympics.

  3. Well, I agree with you. I hate sports on TV and get really upset when they block out good stuff.

  6. LOL. What? You didn't want to watch 100 hours of people shoving a rock down a frozen shuffle board court??

  7. I love the Olympics although I didn't watch as much as I usually do. Stuck to this computer too much! V

  8. Hmmm...we watched some of the Olympics, but when it got boring we watched some shows, and when they got boring we turned off the TV.

    I don't think we missed much.

    By the way, I did Google "21" and I see what you mean! It would be perfect!

    And no, I've never been there. Maybe in another lifetime when I'm good-looking and rich. ;-)

  9. Hehehe...

    I finally tuned in on Sunday to watch the hockey game. Am I EVER glad I did - what a fantastic game!

    That, and the last five minutes of another hockey game, were all I watched. I'm some proud of our Canadian athletes though!

  11. My TV died a week before they started. I still haven't gotten around to replacing it. I guess that tells you what I think of television - and what's on it.

  12. Yes, I agree. I'm glad, in a way, that the Olympics are over, but sad at the same time. I didn't get much accomplished when they were on, but, now I miss all the sports and am proud of how well we did. It is really withdrawal! Loved the curling, skiing, and especially that hockey game! Yea, Canada, but, what a barn burner!

  13. I'm not much of a sports fan, but I can't get enough of the Olympics!! LOVED every minute of it, and have since I was a kid!!! Now that the games are over, I'm hoping to find my laundry room floor.....;)

  17. I'm ashamed to say I saw none of it other than a glimpse of that frozen shuffleboard thing Mental Mamma references.

  18. I missed the excitement but managed to catch the not-so-much and turn to TCM. So I am getting this.

  19. I marvel at the Olympian's abilities...I wish I could harness their dedication...I was sometimes in awe when I watched...but I don't have the attention span for two weeks.

  20. Although it did interfere with my fave show, Law & Order, I will miss the Olympics. I loved it. Cheers Daryl!!

  21. Totally with the Toon Man on this one. Though will say it was interesting to see Curling for the first time and I liked catching moments of the hockey while my roommates were GLUED to the Olympics.

  22. Well you know I disagree lol! We're the exact opposite, now catching up on all the regular shows and missing the Olympics.

  23. I take it the Olympics rate right up there with cleaning Rosie's litter box?

  24. I didn't watch any of it, so I don't know HOW funny this is, but it's funny anyway.

  25. I caught and enjoyed far more of it than ever before.. even the curling. I blame Frank for that.
