Used to be downhill skiing. Now it's short track speed skating.

I like the Biathlon.  You have to cross country ski to your targets and then try to shoot them out.  I can see myself huffing and puffing and my rifle bobbing up and down 12 inches as I try and catch my breath.  I hope to hold my breath long enough to keep the rifle still to hit my target.  Oh and if you miss a target, take a penalty lap before heading out to ski to the next target.

Favorite? Probably alpine skiing. I like to watch most everything except for figure skating and curling. Luge and Skeleton are crazy, I'd shit my pants if I was going 100mph on a sheet of ice.

I don't know why, but I'm really into curling. Snowboarding is sweet too. The wife loves figure skating, so I'm sure I'll be seeing a lot of that in the coming weeks.

Short track speed skating, but favorite is the ski jumping...such a finesse sport to squeeze every inch you can out of each jump.

I like it too. I think it’s cause I can envision a bunch of fat guys drinking beer in between go’s as a thing like cornhole for the olympics.

I was going to say curling, but I have to agree, short track speed skating is pretty wild. Used to be hockey, but without the NHL players this year, that is a let down.

Ice Hockey. I won't go out of my way to watch it though. I like a lot of the summer games though soccer, rugby, Judo, wrestling, weight lifting, track/field.

Snowboarding and alpine skiing but I usually just watch whatever is on. I'm more of an X-games kind of guy.

I agree, no interest in watching amateur players I never heard of.

Btw anyone wants to get into curling theres a great match on right now USA vs. SUI its tied 3-3 in the 7th end. Swiss are the defending world champs.

Yea, they got the "hammer" so they kind of dictate how the round goes. USA just has to hold them to a single point.

Tough loss, feel like the US outplayed them and gave it up at the end.

Curling - it was the one Olympic sport that I felt like me and my buddies could actually compete in. It’s shiffleboard on ice!!

We've got a rink(arena, hall, building?) here in MN that has a bar attached. Beer league curling sounds awesome!

I will watch whatever. Women's hockey isn't too bad. I just like to tune in for people to get hurt. I will watch ice skating and hope they fall. Speed skating for the wipeouts. You get the point. Fuck em.

I just saw this post on Twitter from some guy about how he scores Figure Skating.  

Quote :
How I judge figure skaters:

Lots of points for not falling
More spins, more points
Extra points for a good song.

If you ask me, that sounds about right.  ROFL

Pretty much! I saw a dude earlier that skated to a Queen medley and it was awesome.


Also just watched the Israel team skate and the girl fell. I laughed and my wife teared up. I have a feeling this will be how the next couple of weeks go in the Doppelganger household.

There will probably be some tears in our household too, but we only have 1 box of Kleenex in our house right now, so tomorrow I'm headed to the store to get a box for my wife.

She was just talking about how beautiful it was and how she wants our not yet conceived children to do it. I want football back!

Was talking to my wife about scoring and how it makes no sense. In the men's short program some dude fell twice and got a higher score than another guy who looked like he did everything perfectly (obviously I have absolutely no idea if he did, all I know is he didn't fall or stumble). It's too complicated for me to pay that much attention. It was kind of weird to watch the men fall down regularly though.

There are 2 types of figure skating they get judged on.... the free skate and the Short program... both get judged by presentation ( music, outfit, hair, etc.) in the Free skate its more of a technical skate, so your'e being judged by how balanced you are, stuff like that.  In the Short skate your'e judged on the components of the skate(difficulty of jumps and routine you put together). This is why a skater can still fall and gain points because it was a really hard jump.

Anyone else watch the opening ceremony? I thought it was one of the best I can remember. The whole story of the history of Korea and the symbolism was cool. I just wish Katie Couric and Mike Tirico would have shut their mouths.
