Olympic Commentary

Just a few questions I fielded and observations made tonight while watching the Olympics with the kids…

How do they stay on that [snowboard]?

How do they keep going?  How do they get up the hill?

What color is bronze?

Is bronze 2nd or 3rd?

Are the medals really made out of gold, silver and bronze?

Where are the people that are watching them?  Is there anybody on the hill?

Is that the winner?  What does semi-final mean?

Is this the second heat?  What does 2nd heat mean?

Where are the Americans?

Is a sentence a sentence without verbs?

Do we want the Russians to win?

This is the 2nd Olympics where I really understand what is going on.

Are all female snowboarders hot blondes? (My question)

He looks like Daddy.  (American figure skater)

Casey has moved no less than 4 times in 45 minutes…chair, couch, floor, floor on other side of room.

Do figure skaters get dizzy when they spin like that?

I can see his skin all the way to his belly.

Black is not a good winter color.  People shouldn’t wear black here.

They cry because they’re so happy they won…they just have to cry a lot.

Commercials are for selling things or what can happen or what you don’t want to happen or for movies or for crazy stuff.

I think I know why that movie is rated PG.  Because he just took that gun and zapped him.

So what did they just say?  Can you say that different?

What is the prize for the teams?

Where’s the skiing?  I really like the skiing.

How long is the longest song in the world?
