Will you you watch the Winter Olympics, and if so which sports?

Probably, it depends on my wife's interest as well as what's on at what times.

Not something I have to follow.

Maybe I'll watch occasionally.

 

Skieing/Bobsled.

Chasing runners with wolves or swimming with polar bears will definitely peek my interest.

How about wolves RIDING on polar bears?  That's probably enough to coax most into breaking world records, doubly so if they're told up front the last guy across the finish line gets eaten - or just covered in condiments the polar bear really really likes.. Which would probably lead to the same thing.

I used to LOVE the Olympics...even with the Russian judges. Now I have developed a distaste for the I.O.C. that rivals that of the N.C.A.A. & approaches Congress.

SO I'd say the Winter Games are a maybe at best.

Probably a bit. The wife likes to see the opening and closing ceremonies. I'll watch some of the hockey, figure skating, skiing and whatever's on any time I'm bored.

Will probably miss the olympic games as we don't watch live tv any more. DH records favorite shows to watch whenever.  Neither of us are much into sports of any kind.

Probably not, but if we did we'd watch curling, figure skating, and the sledding ones.

Yes. Given the restraints of work and the time zone difference I will watch as much as I can of:

-Hockey

-Skiing: alpine, freestyle, jumping

-Speed skating

-Bobsled

-Luge

-Skeleton

 

And I can't believe it's been 8 years since the Olympics were held here in Vancouver. :down:

 

*goes off to sort through collection of Olympic wear and Team Canada jersey*

 

Ok, what is skeleton and how many participants actually survive the experience?

I find the 1984 Summer Olympics pretty much maxed me out for Olympics for life. I haven't watched more than a few minutes at a time of any Olympics - summer or winter - since. Except for a few years back when my wife really, really wanted to watch some sort of skating or something.

 Skeleton is like luge, but face-first...

 

(The sleds are smaller and heavier, but basically same sport, different position)

 

 

Any Olympic coverage I watch will be entirely accidental, as I happen to run across videos online. Mostly it will consist of watching people wiping out and/or otherwise getting horrifically injured, while the rest will be watching highlights of whatever sports have women in tight spandex.
