Grab Your Winter Coat Marge, We're Off To Canada's Warmest City!

Everything you want to know about life is always answered on The Simpsons.



Last Sunday The Simpson's writers out did themselves with an episode all about the winter Olympics. In above clip Homer pretty much represents how a lot of folks perceive the winter Olympics...they didn't even know there was any. Marge and Homer land up loving to compete in curling and go to Vancouver to showcase couples mixed curling events. Every inch of cartoon cell is hilarious. A few days ago here, I was wondering why CTV and NBC would show three times the fellow who lost his life on the luge and this episode answers that question. Because "we're vampires who suck at the shattered dreams of others." I keep thinking of that dialogue every time the coverage shows replays of crashes and face plants of skiers.

And people question my adoration of Homer!!!

Apparently Britain has won a gold for the first time in 30 years.

Amy someone and something to do with Bob and Arthur and a skeleton. I dunno...sounds weird to me

I've been watching it all on line, that way I can catch the full coverage of the events. They are all archived as well at the CTV site. I just watched the tape of the GB bobsledding team going down the track on their heads with the bobsled on top of them.

For reasons I can't explain, I really enjoy watching curling, especially women's curling.

That was awful for that guy to lose his life in the sledding competition. I call it sledding... Very fast and huge sled... Yikes...

Everyone I know is watching - I've had a love affair with the Olympics my entire life. I even watch hours of curling - not sure why and I don't understand the rules. But give me a rooting interest and I get sucked right in ;0)

Because "we're vampires who suck at the shattered dreams of others." That's an apt statement on your part Candy! It reminds me of the opening of ABC's Wide World of Sports when we'd see the ski jumper crash as the narrator intoned "the agony of defeat".
