Have they begun?!? I'm seeing some buzz, but I'm kind of out of it, so I don't know if they're actually underway. 

I tried the link for the septolet and got an error message. Not sure why...

Yes Tony, they have begun!   We've gotten gold already.... 17 year old kid Red Gerard and Jamie Anderson  both slope style snow boarding so fun to watch!  What world do you live in?   Canada won gold for the team Ice competition... Some beautiful skating.   And the entrance of the nations was emotional as always, most emotional was North and South Korea marched in one uniform, as one nation.   That was very cool.   Opening ceremony was awesome as usual but nothing will top China's in my mind.  I'm obviously not a winter sports person partly because snow is alien to me. (I did go Tahoe when I was younger and skied a few times.) But snow is cold. I prefer the summer sports. It is still exciting to watch the Winter Olympics.

Thanks Joel for noticing my word play.    In a small restrictive form like this, sounds and balance become a major component in the delivery. The on/off in the previous line is my favorite though.  I love words.
