I feel the need to pile on to prove my point. You all are welcome.

That's funny: the hockey is all I'll watch . The rest of the sports are fun to do but not so entertaining to watch.

The others are curiosities, things that I wouldn't watch more than, say, once every four years. Hockey, I just never grew up with. Is Olympic hockey any more or less interesting than the NHL?

It's very interesting because you get to see all the different players teamed up totally differently. Hockey, more so than any other major sport, is dependent on the chemistry of the line mates on the ice at any given time.

I'm disappointed that Valterri Fillipula (Tampa Bay Lightning) has broken his ankle, I was looking forward to seeing him teamed up with Teemu Salani (Anaheim Ducks) for Finland.

I hope to see rookie Tomas Jurco (Detroit Red Wings) lined up with veteran Marion Hossa (Chicago Blackhawks) for the Slovaks along with Zedono Charo (Boston Bruins) on Defense.

NHL will not be sending players in 2018. Understandable, but too bad.

The women's hockey is really fun to watch, far less brutal and more technical. Wednesday's game USA vs Canada will be ...interesting.
Having said that, we still can't find any full game replays.

Oh well.

I like watching the snowboarding and skiing, except for cross country, and I like the figure skating, I'll skip the hockey

Yeah, the skiing and snowboarding fascinates me - but then again that's because I'm chickenshit on the slopes. The last time I went was 12 years ago and I spent a good half hour just sitting at the middle of a slope. I'm more of the "I'll be back at the lodge in the jacuzzi with a beer" variety.

Hmmm, now there's an Olympic sport: the 16oz curl.



BTW, I try to get into the figure skating but those outfits, man. Sheesh.

Have been enjoying what I can. Skiing, luge, snowboarding, am looking forward to the bobsledding, skeleton and such. Watched what I could on figure skating but unfortunately missed most of it. Haven't watched hockey - I don't have the time to sit there for that long. Tried to catch the men's final freestyle moguls today but missed it. The 10 hour time difference is the pits so was able to watch a few things on webcasts etc. Curling I won't watch - again, I don't have that kind of time to just sit and watch.

It's fun for us to watch skiing and snowboarding since we've been on the slopes every weekend this winter. Even though none of it is skiing like we do. You sure appreciate their skills.

I'll watch any of it for a while. I remind our kids how these people have had very little life outside training for this, for years. Great to watch, but they really are obsessed to get to that level.
