I get extreme FOMO from not watching as many Olympic events as possible because I love everything about the Olympics, so yes.



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

I'd watch ice hockey despite the absence of NHL players, but broadcast times are pretty bad.

Been watching since I realized the #masterrace is #masterracing again.

Probably not gonna keep that top spot but it's fun to cheer for your arbitrarily bordered countrymen.

There's only one true #masterrace when it comes to winter olympics

You mean the cheaters whose whole country is basically a winter olympics playground 365 days of the year but still cannot produce consistent results?

Can't produce consistent results? We have the three most winning winter-olympians of all time, and we've been in the top three nations 6 of the last 8 times.

Why don't NHL players play?

Nope, I don't pay the ridiculous tv tax my shitty government tries to extort out of people so I can't watch it.

Wait, you guys have a choice? For us it's if you own or know someone who owns or have seen a drawing of an internet capable device you gottta pay.

We only have to pay if we watch live TV or BBC iplayer. So I can watch all the Netflix on TV I like without paying them a penny for their shitty BBC



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Pretty weak for a country where going to work already counts as training for the Winter Olympics. Gotta admire the countries that actually have summer and have to actually put some effort into training.

And speaking of arbitrary records, Germany has been in the top TWO 11 times of the last 13 Olympics. That's what I call consistency.

Nope. Was going to watch hockey, but the NHL isn't sending the hockey players, so probably not going to be interested till the very end.



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

Pfff, the east german druggies don't count.

But yeah, Germany is pretty decent. I mean, 1.54 gold medals per million capita (including said east-german gold medals) is pretty decent. Not quite 23.7, but quite good nonetheless!
