Is ace.

We should sack off the Summer Olympics.

Or if we do have to have it, we should make them do it on ice but even quicker before the ice melts.

My personal favourite was the Boardercross and the the Skicross, if it's not rubbing, it's not racing.

Speed skating is mental too.

I love the speed-skating. I can -- or could before the arthritis fairy interfered -- skate pretty well with hockey boots, but could never get the hang of the longer speed blades. Just couldn't take the bends right.

I was in NL, actually Friesland, when Sven Kramer -- a Friesman -- lost the 10,000m. Trust me, that's worse than the king dying. Talk about national mourning! Right, Rosie?

Don't feel bad, I've seen loads of people fall over, and they are in the Olympics. One race I saw was like Foinaven.

Yeah, it's just too bad. Also too bad that he irritably threw the big medal-holder thing into the crowd at the Heineken house, putting several people into hospital.

We are big fans of the biathlon and ski jumping, keeps us in sport while the footballers have a winter break.

The Germans should have romped the biathlon...

Winter sports are hyawge here

What's weird is everyone I have spoken to has loved it, I mean really loved it, but aside from Ski Sunday all the sports will disappear here for the next four years.

Oddly, curling might get some air time in the interim.

I was talking about it the other night. Not many sports in the summer Olympics that can seriously fuck your shit up if you get it wrong.
