he doesn't expect to medal, but the fact that in a little over five years he was good enough to get to the olympics is pretty impressive
We have 9 participants so far: fbaezer, RJB, osso, tsar, Jespah, George, Rhyss, djjdd2 and ehbeth. That's more than what we had in Turin 2006.
Jespah still is missing one group D pick (Sweden don't count, it's on group B).
djjdd2 will be sad to know that the Jamaican bobsled didn't qualify for 2010 (as they didn't in 2006).
All picks can be changed before the opening ceremony.
Group 1: Canada Men, US Women
Group 2: Sweden, Norway
Group 3: Finland, China
Group 4: Japan, Ukraine, England, Estonia
but there are jamaicans participating in some capacity as far as i can tell, so i'm sticking with them
Dragging this up - we need more teams!
Heh! Who woulda thunk it, eh?
Lindsey Vonn has a bruised shin that may affect her performance.
Something to consider if you're picking USA women.
New Group D pick: Czech Republic if that's okay. If not, um, Greece?
Should be okay. She is foregoing xrays and instead is wrapping her leg in cheese. Makes sense to me.
I'm sticking with those US Women. I'm betting Vonn skis.
I had some luck with the football league so lets see If I can carry it over to here:
From Russia With Love
I would like a box for Swedish Fish please.
I surrender to France
I'll pick one in a billion on China
Something with a Z
No teams playing beginning with a Z, Seed. No Zambia or Zimbabwe. Try again.
Didn't mean it had to start with a Z but have a Z
But you have to choose one, Seed.
Until you choose specifically, we'll take Zaire as your choice
I see 6 with a Z in them.
Thanks for setting this up, fbaezer. Let the games begin on Friday.
