This is the official thread for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games being held in Pyeongchang, South Korea. With Russia being absent, we can only assume one country will top the medal table… Cyprus!

Sorry, I meant to type America there. Not sure how that happened.

Half of me thinks the games should moved on cancelled. These Olympics will provide a ripe opportunity for the nut in N. Korea to pull something. I don’t think we should give him that opportunity.

Aren’t South and North Korea going to enter together in the opening ceremony or something like that, or represent the same country in one of the sports? I might’ve read that somewhere.

I liked to know how race plays a factor in a coin toss.

me too. quite a lack of facts. It sounded to me like he thought race played a factor in a toin coss being required. IE, he didn’t think it should have gotten to the point of requiring a toin coss.

but he could also be crazy.

Why not both?

YOU MUST TOSS A COIN / FLIP A BIT. YOU CANNOT HAVE BOTH 0 AND 1.

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?

In 1991 North and South Korea fielded united teams in the world table tennis championships. It was quite hopeful seeing the athletes working together. Too bad it didn’t help. This is a bigger stage, so I hope that it makes a dent.

I’m curious how it will be reported/spun in North Korea press to its own people.

Ok, who is running the security at these games, the three stooges?? Apparently some jerk got past security at the opening ceremonies and was on the floor and got next to the guy singing the traditional Korean song. What if that guy had be a terrorist/nut with a bomb or a gun or something? How the hell does that happen? Then later on that same guy(according to NBC) was on the floor again! How he not arrested right after he was seen by everyone on camera next guy that was singing the tradition Korean song? HE WAS ON CAMERA!! HE WAS RIGHT NEXT SOMEONE THAT WAS SINGING A SOLO!! EVERYONE IN THE STADIUM MUST HAVE SEEN HIM! If he was arrested, HOW DID HE GET AWAY FROM SECURITY AND GET THE FLOOR AGAIN! There needs to be an investigation of this. This a was major screw-up that could have cost lives The people in charge of security there should be embarrassed and ashamed of themselves.

I don’t know if is the same guy I talked about above or another guy, but apparently an intruder on the floor and attempted to “accost” two performers. According to the article above, they eventually apprehended the guy, but let him go. So apparently, you can sneak on the floor of the Olympic opening ceremonies, attempt to accost people and you don’t have to go jail. Ridiculous.
