Ski jumpers are tree frogs who’ve taken on human form.

The ski-cross is my favourite winter sport tho it’s so chaotic I struggle to think of it as sport.

Of course Ed Leigh is an arse, he’s a boarder.

I love the boarders' chat. Woodsy was hilarious. There's just so much undirected love and goodwill in there. Everything is awesome. :-) G

The Half pipe is good, especially the ski-ers, so much more acceleration and so much faster with more 'amplitude' than the slow but apparently cool boarders ;-), there was guy int he BBC studio said as much the other day.

One more thing, has anyone else noticed how Wilf O'reilly is Frank Skinner's voice twin?

So sad that our curling team came up short today. Should have grabbed the initiative in the last end but a couple of wayward stones, plus a couple of fantastic Japanese ones, put a lot of pressure on Eva Muirhead.

I think we will all agree that going for broke to win was the right call instead of playing it safe for an extra end. Sadly her line for the final stone was out plus if it was less aggressive, she may still have held for one.

The team have generally played well so mustn't be criticised for isolated mistakes.

Yeah curling was a disappointment. Loved the big air well done Billy Morgan. I think overall a great games. Loved the XC ski, the cross, the parallel snowboard, the slalom, the downhill, super g and GS. I've got a set of touring skis to have a wee go at XC + downhill all in one day on Wed at Glenshee! Inspired! :-) G
