  1. Olympics forever! Although the summer ones are better, because everyone’s more naked.

    • I think I might be part of the 2% of Olympics fans that loves them both equally. I’m very excited for bobsledding and luging and ski jumping and speed skating and the slalom and ALL OF IT. I also think the opening ceremony is going to be so terrifying!

      • I love them both too! I get excited every two years because I just really love the Olympics! I had an Opening Ceremonies party for the summer Olympics last year, which was really fun because it combined my Anglophilia with my love for the Olympics. The perfect party.

        • I love the opening ceremonies, even when (especially when) they’re terrible.

        • Yes! One of my best friends and I always have Opening Ceremonies parties where we eat food of the host nations! I made toad in the hole for London, which was fun! I’m not hosting this go around, and I’m relieved, because the only Russian food I can think of is borscht and vodka.

      • Nothing can be more terrifying than 3 hours and 45 minutes of English people rolling up grass into giant balls. NOTHING!

    • I only watch the Winter Olympics and only for the figure skating. Although the new thing seems to be forcing people trying to watch the figure skating to watch all of the boring things like snowboarding by not saying when the figure skating is coming on but saying “Coming up: men’s figure skating short programs! We swear!” before every commercial break and then two hours later after you have been fooled into caring about Shaun White you finally get to the good stuff (the good stuff being men in frilly costumes twirling around on the ice; does it get any better than that?)

      • Ugh, NBC’s coverage. I forgot about that. I do like figure skating, but ever since they changed the rules so every skater has to perform certain moves in their routine (was that only in women’s? I don’t remember) it’s gotten a lot more boring, because so many of them are the same. I get that it makes judging more fair, but some of the creativity is definitely lost.

        • I agree. And I get that figure skating gets a lot of flack for “not being a real sport,” or whatever. But for a lot of people (myself included) it’s those more creative and accessible sports that got me watching in the first place.

          • Also, figure skaters could kick all of our asses, and do so while looking graceful and elegant while we lie in an uncoordinated puddle of awkward blood.

          • Plus: SCANDALS! (OMG can you believe how long ago Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding happened? So long ago! Kids today probably don’t even know about it! Dinosaurs still roamed the earth!)

          • It happened in Detroit, and every time I’d go to a concert at Cobo Hall, I’d reference the attack and talk about how I hope Jeff Gilloly wasn’t around. Remember when Tonya’s lace broke? And she cried and got to start over again? Oh, Tonya!!!

        • Ah, I hate NBC coverage too! You have to watch ALL of their primetime coverage to find the thing you actually care about. I watched way more track and field than I ever, ever wanted to just to get to some gymnastics last year!

          I love figure skating stories! One of my favorite parts of figure skating coverage during the Olympics is the dramatic backstory packages they produce for the skaters. And the coaches! I love the coaches!

          • The gymnastics coverage pissed me off SO MUCH last year. I expected the more obscure sports to get the shaft, but gymnastics is one of the big draws, and they showed hardly anything (especially from the other country’s teams)! Besides being pretty unfair to the athletes and viewers, it really took away from the drama of the whole thing. Will Russia/China/Japan beat America? We have no clue, because we don’t know how they’re doing! Ugh.

            And yeah, I like track and field but no one really needs to see a billion preliminary heats.

    • I prefer the Autumn Olympics. But that’s because I’ve been training all my life to be on the American tetherball team. My dodgeball skills aren’t too shabby, either.

  2. Bullshit. That movie is delayed because of Jack Donagey.

  3. Kelly, just a heads up…don’t get *too* excited when you learn that you’ve crushed the Videogum page views record already today. That was just me looking for your Breaking Bad recap every .5 seconds.

  4. If Julia Roberts ever made fun of me, I’d just be like “Oh yeah? LARRY CROWNE, bitch!”

  5. Groot is, in fact, a talking tree. This movie is going to be awful.
