Default 2014 Winter Olympics

Let's talk Olympics. What's your favorite sport/event to watch? Who do you think is going to take the Gold.

I personally like Shaun White - he's a crowd favorite. Also really enjoy watching curling for some odd reason.

Default Re: 2014 Winter Olympics

I'm more concerned with the non-sport aspect of these Olympics right now. Safety seems like a huge question mark so far and they don't seem prepared to host in general...like 8 hotels built to accommodate visitors still aren't finished yet.

Also, I was reading an article the other day and saw a bizarre event that happened in Beijing that seemed to get zero world press- the father of an American Olympian was stabbed to death and the assailant jumped to his death right after. Does ANYONE remember reading about that?

Snowboarding, freestyle skiing, downhill skiing, bobsledding are probably my favorite

I also enjoy watching the short track speed skating.

I remember that happening, it didn't get as much coverage as you would think it would. Something like that happening at the Olympics would get more coverage you would think.

I hope nothing like that happens this year with all the safety concerns over there.

As for my favorite sport, curling. Don't ask why because I have no idea why I like it.

The summer Olympics have much better events than the winter variety though

Not a big fan of the winter games. I hope the US participants do well, nationalistic pride and all, but I won't be upset if I don't get.to see any of the events.

I actually like ice hockey in the winter better than basketball in the summer (even if we don't win) because all the games are competitive. (That we are in)

Yeah It's hard to get too excited about Olympic hoops, not much upside when it's assumed you will win gold everytime. With Hockey there are always a handful of teams that could win it all.

Can't wait! I love figure skating, bobsled, speed skating and snowboarding. The halfpipe is always fun to watch.

Did you know this is the first year of Olympic women's ski jumping ever? I knew ski jumping was there, but I never realized it was only males. They have also added a team figure skating event, where each country competes as a team in addition to individually.

Yea.

I mean we have a legit chance at gold, and the games will be competitive. (Unlike the basketball games of recent)
I guess there's a little different pride associated with Olympic gold in Hockey, because let's face it, no one cares about winning gold in basketball.
I expect us Sweden or Canada to win it.

I know Russia is favored but they always choke and are soft.
