some of this, some of that. Wifie enjoys figure skating, ski jumps & a little curling. As for me, yrs ago I did some speed skating during the winter as couldn't always get in what I wanted to for running. I was on '60 Olympic marathon team (as "alternate")in case one of the 3 had injury or otherwise couldn't compete. So I follow as much speed skating as possible, esp the distance events.

I have been recording all of the coverage and have it on day and night. If I had to pick favorites it would be Alpine skiing, snow boarding, hockey, all the events on the Luge track. Maybe my least favorite is the Biathlons. Since it is only every 4 years, I try to watch all that I can.
I have tried to watch the skiing. I have to say that NBC has dropped the ball with its coverage. In this day and age why do I need to sit through events I don't care about just to see 5 downhill runs? You should be able to tune into a channel right when the event is starting and it should be shown until its over. I am now down to watching highlights on the web. Sad.
