I interpreted this thread to mean the whole Olympics, not just figure skating... which explains my #3 wish about Apolo!
that all the nbc commentators, especially sandra bezic, scott hamilton, dick button and bob costas, all get struck down by some wonderful disease that renders them unable to speak.
Or that at least Scott gets a sore throat and can't yell. He's a sweet guy but I can't take two hours of that.
What I want for the Olympics is great skating & solid judging. I truly hope it does not come down to a TES vs. PCS battle in the men's event (again) but I think it might. Hoping for an Olys for the Canadian contingent like the last Olys in Canada, where they skated their best and and really inspired Canadians.

Oh please, there were be people who complain no matter what happens. I expect that there will be youtube videos on the winner's supposedly URs that the judges miss after the event.
My wishes for the Games include:
Shen & Zhao finally winning the gold with Belbin & Agosto doing the same
Mirai skating lights out
Joubert winning the gold
Johnny on the podium
Miki being the superstar I know she is
Fans keeping the "wuzrobbed" to a minimum...
And of course, lots of fresh popcorn for Senorita with lots of mojitos for moi
Lol kwanwife you rock
send some mojitos my way please, it 's just occurred me that the competition will be much more easier to handle if drunk a little! By the end of the Lp and medal ceremony i might be singing the anthem (whatever that will be)
I ll send some popcorn back!
One of my big hopes for the Olys is to see more coverage of many different sports that I don't normally see, like ski jumping and biathlon. I love the Olympics and would watch any sport in it. If they had Olympic tiddlywinks, I would be there (I'd probably be the only one there, but I'd be there)!
Popcorn and mojitos!!!!! Woohoo. It's done. That will definitely be on the menu for me and the two friends I've managed to get interested in figure skating this year.
Thanks Kwanford and Seniorita.
ARipp: Salted. No butter.
Maybe I'll after a couple of mojitos I won't be so nervous when Yuna and Joannie step onto the ice ... and when the two American girls go out there.
Tomas is clean and medals, shows the world he IS that good (I can hope!)
Mirai and Akiko have great performances and become BFFs
Brian Joubert medals so there will be lots of pictures of him and his hot body
Yuna wins OGM, because she deserves it
Miki and Mao give Yuna a run for her money
Carolina and Laura do their triples
Jeremy wins OGM and beats Plushenko!
Sorry I laugh, but sometimes people are so focused on plush gets beaten that dont see
the most obvious actually, that if Jeremy -or any skater - wins the gold, well basically ...he will have beaten everybody!

Speaking of which... who wants to start a drinking game?
Silverlake, I think you're hoping he'll run around the Olympic Village with nothing but pants on. After all, Vancouver is not really having a winter. Speaking of which... can us East Coasters donate our tons of snow to Vancouver? After all, we're getting another monster snow storm on Wednesday! LOL
Here's another hope for the Olympics (and that applies to all the athletes)... no terrorist attack or bombs (ala '72 Munich or '96 Atlanta). Everyone should have a great time and enjoy the Olympic spirit... even though it's gonna cost the city of Vancouver oodles of mullah!
