I love the Winter Olympics to death, but this has been a train wreck waiting to happen since a warm Black Sea resort town in a corrupt country was announced as the host city in 2007. I hope the coverage will be wide enough to show what they've done and not accomplished in the city, but I doubt it, it'll be tight and edited the way Detroit news broadcasts create "stunning" intros of their dilapidated city.

That out of the way, pumped for death defying/racing events.

Curling is the one Winter sport old people can participate in.

I like the one where you ski around in circles and shoot a gun

NBC's doing their bullshit delays again, and why the heck do we events starting today before the opening?

I'm going to do my best not to bitch about the delay thing, or people talking about the events before they air ... I went overboard during the London Olympics and am not sure why I care so much.

I'm just planning on watch the opening ceremonies and maybe catching some figure skating, although I'm not as into it as I used to be.

My parents were in a curling club for a few years. I got to try it once. It was harder than I thought.

I will stream anything that I really care to see LIVE, otherwise I am fine with coming home after work and watching the packaged primetime show. I'm over it.

I love this new era of streaming whatever sport you want. Curling is my favorite.

Apparently the downhill course has a jump as long as a football field. Nuts.
