The 2018 Winter Olympics is just a few days away!  This year, it takes place in the city of PyeongChang, South Korea.  Likely chosen for the location due to it being a mountainous region. (Which we all know is perfect for all of the winter sports taking place.)

Anyways, talk about the 2018 Winter Olympics here.

See ya later!

Circus with our Russian team, IOC, politicans and other clown is still continuing. :/
That's a shame.

Anyway, I never watched Winter Olympic games for some reasons, so I'm fine. :D

I'll probably take a look at some additional events in addition to ski jumping which is the only winter sport I watch regularly. It'll be exciting to see how those competitions go. :)

I hope to God North Korea behaves itself. I don't want a repeat of what happened when Russia hosted the Olympics last time.

Go Canada!!!

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir are the flag bearers for my country.
I am a big LBT fan and have seen all movies and TV series episodes. On the forum, I was formerly known as Hypnobrai until Nov 11, 2017.

In recent years, I have gained an interest in the production of The Land Before Time, particularly the deleted scenes of the original film. New discoveries have been made in the last few years and continue to be made, so I feel that it is a good time to contribute.

I have always loved sharpteeth more than any other creatures in the franchise, especially the fourteenth film's Carnotaurus, the fifth film's Sharptooth, and especially the original Sharptooth.

I am a former administrator of the LBT wiki, having been active from 2017 to 2019.

Canada is destroying the competition. This may be their best winter games yet.

Women's hockey gold medal game goes into overtime for the second straight Winter Olympics! US and Canada tied 2-2 just as they were in Sochi.

Neither team scores in overtime, so it's going to a shootout.

TEAM USA WINS!  :D

Aw, Canada was so close. They get silver at least though. Congrats to the American team.

Meanwhile I'm focusing on the Canadian men in Hockey as they take on Germany in the Semi-final of the tournament (Canada defeated Finland and Germany beat Sweden to advance)

What the...!

Um, ... okay, ... I, ... uh, ... honestly don't know what to say about this piece. I CAN say, though, that we don't need to ban the Olympics just because of the rumor that they cause political corruption.

there is some truth to the fact that the Games cost a lot and that several countries made no plans for what to do with the event locations and Olympic villages after the games were over. the 2004 games in Greece as well as the 2008 Games in China are good examples of things being left to rot,.
