Well let's see, now. We started out with a winter Olympics with no snow. Events on Cypress mountain were seriously in doubt as they trucked in snow from elsewhere. Too bad Philadelphia or Washington, D.C. didn't win the Olympics.
At Whistler, fog and rain was such a problem that men's downhill skiing was postponed for two days.
In the opening ceremonies, the hydraulics for one of the four indoor cauldrons didn't work - kind of like an internationally-televised version of erectile dysfunction. And speaking of dysfunction, what was that 15 minute Wayne Gretzky ride in the back of a pick-up all about?
The talk at the Richmond Skating Oval is all about the "fair" quality of the ice because the facility is at sea-level.
And, of course - and sadly - a Georgian slider lost his life in a luge practice run.
Boy these Olympics got off to an auspicious start.
But observers seem to have looked past these adversities as athletes push swifter, higher, stronger in their quest for gold, silver and bronze.
Thank God Canada finally won a gold on home soil. Alex Bilodeau took top honours in the men's moguls event Sunday night.
Canadian Olympics broadcaster CTV has really been hyping the crap out of "it's our time" in terms of never winning a gold at a Canadian-hosted Olympics - 76 in Montreal and 88 in Calgary.
Maybe now they'll let us recline, enjoy, relax.
