It takes your collective mind off of increased British taxes.

Very timely - we've JUST (this minute) announced a reduction in business (corporation tax) which puts us a massive 18% below the USA!

We figure that snow is probably not what's needed for track and field sports

Oh, OK!! Gotcha!!!!

I rather watch the cold weather games. They never show fencing or shooting on TV so I have little interest. They are really fast to count the fencing and shooting sports medals though

I think it was the Outdoor Channel (Ironic name for a TV network, right?) that had the shooting sports on during the last Olympics.

I like the track and field events though.

We don't watch summer near as much as winter olympics.

Are these two trouble makers still planning to be there?

Those two should be replaced with these two.

And introduced a new stamp tax on "expensive" houses. Nice!

I would like the Olympics if the coverage didn't blow chunks. I mean how hard is it to show the sports instead of TV personalities talking about the other personalities. We have like 500 channels and they can't broadcast enough of events to be worth watching?

If I want to watch people talking about sports I'll watch ESPN.
