The content available to stream on CBC in Canada is amazing this year.  Every event, every channel, it's bananas.

Too bad it's mostly overnight.  I'll be watching the Prime Time recap shows every night.

Prediction: Canada will meet Russia in the final and get screwed over by a terrible call, Russia will buy win a tainted Gold.

Russian official lets slip that Sochi hotels have hidden surveillance cameras in the SHOWERS

How in the hell did these guys win an Olympic bid?
Instead of having to plan and save for your next vacation, why not work on creating a life you don't feel the need to escape from...

I suspect putin and trump have something to do with this
that's great. people are stupid.

What a waste of money.......Athletes were instructed not to use the water because it will burn their skin.  Cameras in the showers?  Joke's on them! 

Seriously though, I couldn't agree more.  How the F did they get the Olympic bid?  What a disaster......

I spent the majority of my life in elite athletics, I have a former athlete competing in Sochi, and I declare: fuck the Olympics and its Olympic movement. That is all.

Basically.
And not just because of the pathetic inability to prepare.

Mostly because Fuck Russia. I'll leave it at that as this is not PolitiW00k.
