The 21st Winter Olympics start in Vancouver tomorrow. Not much football related to report from that I know.

With the winter we've had in Scotland this year and with the huge amount of games disrupted by the weather, it's quite ironic that Vancouver is having record winter temperatures.

The city has recorded it's highest temperatures in over a century and there is a severe lack of snow in one of the main mountain venues at Cypress Mountain.

They've had to ship in snow from elsewhere! I'm sure we could have lent a hand in Scotland with that.

With more snow and fixutre disruption forecast in Scotland, if situations like this continue then we might see a turnaround in the sporting calender. Hell, we might even be able to host our own Winter Olympics one year whilst finally getting to enjoy summer football.

Of course, for that to happen, we'd also need to have a summer!

Just a final comment on the Olympics. Try and catch the opening ceremony tomorrow if you can. I was lucky enough to be able to attend one of the dress rehearsals for it this weekend and it is truly spectacular.
