My Olympics - Day 1

Today was Day One of our Olympic experience, also known as "The Olympics vs. the 4 year old". Today it went well... until the last 30 mins of the bus ride/walk home.

We went to the Women's Curling Prelim, and Hubby and MiL had teh awesome seats, on account of MiL is in a wheelchair scooter. They were basically on the floor right at ice level. We were at the USA vs. Japan end, and that was not a bad thing as it was a very tight game that nearly went to extra ends. The USA lost by an inch, really. They had to measure the last Japanese rock & US rock to see which was closer. I totally called it, though. We could see from Hubby & MiL's seats (we went over to there seats from ours after the final end started, just to make it easier to get out together).

All four of the matches were tight, and three of them flipped back and forth right up to the final end.

The four year old probably watched a grand total of 15 minutes of it. Fortunately we brought a fully loaded (with videos) iPod. Unfortunately, she watched about 3/4 of them today, and there's two days left. And the last day is 4 hours of Men's Free Skate. Ya, I think we might just wander the venue til they get to the top 10 for that. She did stay in her seat and watch - the iPod - quietly, though. Well, other than when we went to get overpriced food.

Skytrain line was non-existant at noon, and the line to get in moved quickly. We got fast-tracked through the first part of the line, the line to get to the security check, on account of stroller & wheelchair. Yay!

So, mostly good day. The Olympic part was awesome! Curling is definitely an event worth seeing, since you get to see multiple teams at once.

Oh, and funny thing - there were some US fans there (and Japanese, Swedish, German... etc) and when they'd chant 'U-S-A' this big bunch of Canadian fans would out-chant them 'Let's go Canada!'. Extra amusing to me since the two teams weren't even playing each other.

That's my Olympics, Day 1!

(and, if you didn't know, there's no update on Thurs on account of, yep, I'm at the Olympics this week, so no writing time)

I decided to take it as a compliment, it would help keep me from beating Antonius where he stood.
