I am legitimately intrigued by curling. Once every four years, curling is actually broadcast on television. I am not going to miss this opportunity.

Also, Jamaica has a bobsled team this year, so I will be checking them out.

Hockey by far...there are some absolutely loaded teams. Canada and Russia are stacked. So are Sweden and Finland. The US is going to have to be on point to medal.

And yes...curling...it is absolutely fascinating television and every time I see it I wish I had a curling facility near my home.

Also really love the alpine skiing...especially downhill and super G. Bobsleigh is great and so is jumping...looking forward to seeing the girls get in on the action this time around as well.

The sports I really don't like are the 'judged' events. Can stand figure skating and as much as I like watching someone go off in the half pipe on a snowboard the judging aspect still kills it for me. I like fastest, farthest, most points, what have you.

Just got an ESPN alert that Shaun White pulled out of the slopestyle event to focus on halfpipe.

I'd like to add in ski jumping also.

Ski Jumping looks absolutely terrifying.

I've always wondered how you begin training ski jumping. I guess you start with smaller jumps? But they are still jumps. At some point you gotta just strap up and try it. So scary.

I think you practice into a foam pit and then progress into water and then try the real thing.

I find winter sports intriguing. I'll probably watch as much of the olympics as I can. I will definitely go out of my way to watch hockey, skiing, and snowboarding.

Keep in mind the crazy time difference. Most major events will be happening in the morning here. Like between 2am and noon. You can stream everything live on the NBC Olympics site or wait till that nights Primetime NBC coverage, but if you're online at all that day results might get spoiled for you. (If you're someone who gets upset over that)

Here's a full schedule day by day in eastern time

Ski jumping is a little deceiving as they really don't get as high off the ground as you would imagine. The camera angle usually makes it seem like they're further from the ground than you think.

Good call. I've never noticed that so I looked up some helmet cams on youtube.

Sochi was a terrible choice by the IOC. I hope these games go off without a hitch, but I've got a bad feeling about this. Between bad hotels, dogs running ramped, and "black widows" inside the olympic zone, this could be perfectly fine, or a disaster.

I have an uneasy feeling about it as well. Sochi is an absolute shit hole. They should have hosted it in a city that is even reasonably able to host such an event.

Something else I heard on CNN today that kind of gave me a knot in my stomach... with all of the wild dogs around the city, city council approved the gassing of dogs.

That's me. I'm going to have to stay away from the internet for a couple weeks. Can't really watch at work and if I know the result then I'm like what's the point of watching. I don't even like seeing an up to date medal count until I've watched the night broadcast.

This is going to be an absolute train wreck. My only concern is that there will not be any loss of life or some other unfortunate event. I read an article earlier that essentially concluded that, if you go to Sochi for the Olympics, you are literally guaranteed to be hacked (phone or computer)
