A different view of the Olympics

For a noncommercial take on the Winter Olympics, check out the Olympics blog of Clayton Imoo, director of the Youth Ministry Office for the Archdiocese of Vancouver, British Columbia.

Imoo creates videos documenting each day’s events. His low-key, humorous approach offsets his occasional lack of footage.  He peppers his videos with references to Lent, and he often includes his family. In his Feb. 14 video, the family goes to downtown Vancouver and has photos taken with a 1976 skiing gold medalist; Feb. 16 they investigate the sport of curling .

Be patient; sometimes the best footage is a minute or two in. My favorite: Feb. 17 he teaches viewers the actual words to the Olympic theme song.

  1. Very cute! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I like that he’s giving up “pop” — NOT “soda” but pop! — for Lent. Takes me back to my childhood, when there was no question it was pop. As for giving it up for Lent, I’m not that strong.

  3. Pop is what it is called in at least some Great Lakes states.
