    The Winter Olympics kind of suck. I get into the speed skating because it's really the only head-to-head timed competition that doesn't take half a day. Other than that everything is judged and open to interpretation, which has always bothered me.

    I'll watch hockey if I don't have anything else to do.

    Yeah.. figure skating is crap. I can appreciate the skill and athleticism that it take to heave a woman around you head while balancing on skates but I agree.. its all open to interpretation. The luge is awesome though. It takes some real cajones to set off on one of those thing

    Mens downhill just might be the most exciting sport there is. I believe it is on the first day of events so if interested don't miss it. 70 mph + down a mountain on skis is a rush.

    No Apollo Ono this year, so even speed skating sucks.

    Jamaican bobsled is the only half interesting thing.


    Even the logo is boring and sucks.
