    Is he kidding me??? How about STFU? SO offensive not to mention idiotic. I'd hope he'd get fired for this, but it's Fox News, so I'm guessing they don't see anything wrong with these comments. Hope they shock me.

    Does this jagweed not know that olympic athletes in almost all events qualify based on prior international results? There are no WC's, save for a handful of events like tennis where a nation's entries are limited. I guess team sports are in the same boat, with a captain having a free selection. But no way is the US sending token athletes in place of a better contender.

    This whole "Olympic Athletes From Russia" is a mouthful. I thought they were just going to be listed as "Olympic Athletes" no mention of their country. I get it, but might as well just put it as Russia with no flag, if no other country is going to be included under the same thing. Remember the Unified Team in 1992? Something like that could've worked too.

    Doesn't matter. Fox news viewers heard it. Now they'll believe it forever.

    This is a new level of stupid. If it were remotely true, the examples would be insanely easy to list, even for team sports.

    I couldn't care less what Fox news viewers think or do.

    Timings are favourable so will watch the games a bit this weekend. All kinds of skiing are my favourite.

    I saw the Moguls last night. None of them will be able to walk after thirty five or so.

    REMINDER: Be Careful when watching other channels. They will report Olympic scores and happenings as they see fit regardless of when NBC is airing something and they won't always give a warning that they are about to do so. ESPN's ticker will have scores on it as well.

    Except for the guy that breached security, twice (or just breached security once but got noticed twice), I thought the opening ceremony was delightful.

    As they see fit regardless of NBC? How dare they!

    My problem will be co-workers telling me stuff if I record and watch stuff in the AM. No way to change the channel away from them.

    I did not catch his name, but apparently there's a guy skiing in the men's downhill with no ACL. I don't quite follow how that's even possible. But he has completed three training runs with no major problems.

    Anyone here catch the stink eye Kin Jong Un's sister gave Pence and mother last night? It was epic.
