    The Winter Olympics

    I'll start it off with this:

    Meet The 7 US Soldiers Going For Gold At The Winter Olympics


    Seven soldiers — four bobsledders and three lugers — are aiming for gold and glory in the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
    The Army athletes will join the hallowed ranksof venerated military veteran Olympians, including such noted Americans asLouis Zamperini,John Woodruff, and Leon Spinks.
    Six of the seven athletes are associated with the World Class Athlete Program, a detachment that allows soldiers to train for and participate in the Olympics, Pan American Games, and World Championships.
    Comcast NBCUniversal, in partnership with the Exchange and local cable, satellite and telecommunications providers, is offering service members and honorably discharged veteransstreaming of the games “free of charge.”
    Opening ceremonies are scheduled for 6 A.M. EST on Feb. 9. Luge events run from Feb. 10-15. Two-man bobsled races will take place Feb. 18-19, and four-man races occur from Feb. 24-25. In the meantime, here’s a bit of background on the seven soldier Olympians to watch in PyeongChang.

    With all due respect @sargentodiaz , will you participate other than the OP?

    I mean, I rarely start threads, but when I do, I always try to answer ALL those that took the time to reply or state their opinions.

    Courtesy can come back around to you

    I always try to participate when the responses are to the OP and not other off-the-wall responses.

    I want lefties to have all the abortions they can. Let them wipe themselves OUT; fine with me.


    The reality is Americans are sick of the Left's insanity and elected an outsider to the White House accordingly. Now, you keep on parroting all that fake news Leftist propaganda BS and see where it gets you in 2020.

    -A True American


    As a nation, we must face it.
    The Clintons are the reason for this mess. They're a cancer, poison, ruinous; a walking Constitutional Crisis. They should both be tried for Treason and executed for their crimes against American citizens and the USA. And they're not the only ones. Justice. It matters.

    and where are the ratings. Is it true that americans are as sick of PC Olympics as they are of Hollywood? Down from Sochi.

    Globalization has succeeded and the big bad American male has been ostracized and marginalized . Now the world can compete at the lower standards . They were winning until testosterone made its resurgence in the White House but we're going to need a change in societies attitudes to make a full comeback . It's going to take a full generation to bring back that torch and we'll need another term from Trump and a serious intervention in our educational priorities .

    With no NHLers in the Olympics this year, the hockey could be quite interesting, if not with the very best players.
