    Ok who else is watching? My favorite is definitely curling and ice dancing (shut up), both relaxing...

    Yeah, sweep those brooms, woman! :shifty: 20180211_145120.

    I like watching curling, especially the Swedish women's team. :)

    Love the curling. That Norway match you posted an image of was actually exciting to watch in a nerdy sort of way. I wish there was more live coverage this year. I used to really enjoy watching sports I previously knew nothing about all day long during past Olympiads!

    I would probably hurt myself if I had to watch curling for more than 2 minutes. ;)

    I'm just unduly Impressed with @xydrine sensitive side. It's as if he's channeling his inner Manilow :confused:

    As far as skating goes, I really can't stand Johnny Weir as commentator. Give us Scott Hamilton back...

    Agreed. Weir is awful. Doesn't help that he reminds me of one of the freaks from the capital city in Hunger Games.

    To me sports has a finish line or earned points not judges... Skating is too much like a Broadway play, good in the beginning but goes way too long.

    As a recovering ski bum, that lived above 8000’ for nearly a decade and used to get 200 days on snow, I’m watching all the sports that require a stopwatch.

    I have to watch curling. I don't understand the game but I can't stop watching.

    Of course I love the snowboarding.

    Curling is definitely mesmerizing. Its like drinking and playing shuffleboard, but on a much grander scale.

    Head up to Quebec, lots of little towns have the curling rinks and they are sort of like bowling alleys here in the states, except they are not heated. There are curling clubs all over up there.
