It's good to border Canada and not have to watch NBC. CBC has more live events, less BS.

Clocker that was funny. If I believed in the rep power thing I would have given you points. Well played.....

I like some of the events. Growing up and living in upstate NY i was into downhill skiing as a young man. Its really fun if you enjoy the outdoors and speed. Unfortunately, my health issues kind of made me give it up. I go like once a year to West Mtn., and rent.

Living fairly close to White Face Mtn. and Lake Placid I still remember 1980. I graduated High School that year. My best friends dad worked for Monsanto and he had a wad of tickets for all the events. I went to the downhill skiing and the Ski jump events. Those cats have balls! Forget about the luge and bob sled, they are just nuts! During the off season they would let you try the bob sled but you were more than halfway through the course when you started and you rode with the driver.

That was the year we beat the Russians with real amateurs. Hockey baby! Those corporate guys scooped all those tickets but i was in the village when we won.........it was a riot, something I'll never forget. American flags and drunks screaming in every bar. Of course the drinking age was 18 then too! It was one of the greatest upsets in the history of all sports. Good luck USA!

Thanks. I agree about the points system. It's too much like high school popularity contests.

South Korea probably going to lose $10 billion hosting the Olympics. It might be worth it if they become friends again with North Korea.

I really enjoyed the biathlon and cross country skiing. These athletes are unbelievably fit.

Ski cross and board cross are probably the best spectator sport in any Olympics. It’s 6 people side by side through jumps and turns and is basically NASCAR on ice. There are no judges. It’s whoever crosses the line first.

I also still like downhill and super g because I like to ski fast and need to be reminded on occasion that I don’t actually know what fast is.

I watch CNBC most weekdays and have to say their ads for curling could be taken as self aware embarrassment. “Curling is what we’ve got” isn’t so much a tag line as it is dejected honesty.

It does apparently have a viewer base that rivals golf in terms of wealth though.

The sports that don't involve judges are always the best.

Russia lost $ 50 billion on the Sochi Olympics.I'm surprised Putin had enough rubles left over to buy the election for Trump.

I really enjoy the ski jumping, bobsled, luge, figure skating, alpine skiing, and speed-skating.
I cannot watch snowboarding, ice hockey, curling, and cross-country.
