    I hadnt watched anything until yesterday. I've watched random ski events, but nothing much. Avoiding curling because I get sucked up into that shit.

    Dude. For the life of me I cannot figure out the rules and I get sucked into watching it every fucking Olympic games. I wanna try it so bad haha.

    Other than that I like the skiing and snowboarding stuff. I'll watch speed skating, preferably short track, its like roller derby haha. Obviously hockey.

    The downhill skiing is crazy. They go way too fast. I freak out going down the bunny hill. I dont even like going 80mph in my car.

    Winter Olympics are awesome. I'll watch all the cross-country skiing events, downhill skiing, ski jumping and biathlon. Unfortunatly without Johaug and Northug, but we'll still win almost everything.

    Will obviously watch the hockey aswell, just sucks that the NHL are some mf'ers.

    Im watching and switching between two channels of coverage - loving that remote back button.

    Actually got to try curling in Lake Placid while at a government-business conference a few years ago. Really awesome! I came home wanting to bring the sport to my local ice rink. But man, those rocks are expensive. About $400 each if I recall. And talk about lugging heavy equipment in your car? Not happening.

    Find a curling club. Hockey and Curling ice are completely different.

    It's a fun game, I suck at it, it's hard, but there's also a huge drinking culture attached to it, so if you lose you still win.

    My buddies drinking and throwing around 40 lbs rocks would not end well.

    Team USA chokes away the first game. I feel like I'm watching a pickup game with 3 on 3 on Olympic ice, dumb if you ask me.

    What a heart breaker that game was. I don't like the 3 on 3 on the big ice.
