Good luck getting those Olympic tickets

I've always kicked myself for not going to the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway. Being of Norwegian descent, I figured I could probably dig up some bunad-wearing relative and catch some of the XVII Olympic Winter Games in the old country. It didn't happen. In fact I haven't been to any Olympic Games, although I've seen the venues' remains in Calgary, Munich, Barcelona and Montreal. So when Vancouver, B.C. won the bid for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, I assumed I'd buy a few tickets and head up to Vancouver and Whistler to watch a couple of events. I'd worry about where to stay later.
