I'm hearing 'Thrift Shop' being played over the PA system on the livestream.

Sounds about right.

I don't care if people think it's a sport or not, I'm always impressed that the human body can actually do that shiat.

During the Olympics, my coworker will come up to me can complain about figure skating every other day.  "I hate judged sports".  He's a big football fan.  I can make the vane on his temple swell when I point our that football is a judged sport too.  "What is roughing the passer?  Sometimes a penalty is called when the QB is lightly pushed, some times no penalty is called when he is drilled.  It seem like a 'judgment call' to me."

I would prefer a handy guide to the women figure skaters.
And skiers, and luge, and...

/My bunk, I'll be in it.

When they score a TD, they don't reduce 1/4 of a point for artistic expression.

With that said, I'm ok with figure skating and gymnastics.  It's fun to watch people fall.

Ice dancing, now that's just stupid.

Well most of the winter olympics is stupid

You both should watch curling then - it's the only olympic sport with no judges or referees at all.  The entire event is scored by the players themselves.

Just need to know who the hottie girl skaters are, and, if they are over 18

Why? You're not humping them. Who cares if they're 18? The don't suddenly become hot at 12:00am on their 18th birthday. You can appreciate a girl is beautiful even if she isn't 18 and not immediately transform into a raping pedophile.

There was that awesome French skater a while back who did a back flip.  She was actually athletic looking, but was over 68 pounds and didn't look like an orphan out of a Dickens novel so the judges hated her before she even showed up and told her she would be basically disqualified if she did it in competition because it wasn't "ladylike" or some such BS.  She got toward the end of her routine, put a big FU grin on her face, skated right in front of the judges and threw a perfect, totally athletic back flip.  Her scores were about as low as they could give.

Not only is it a judged "sport" but the judging is hugely corrupt.
