    Not interesting. The reason? ...... WAY too many events. Snowboarding (joined 1998); 8 gold medals. And skiing ...... a total of 50 gold medals !

    However, I like bobsleigh/luge/skeleton contests. Curt Tomvicz(sp?) was a Huskers football player ...... and USA bobsledder.

    And Summer Olympics ..... much worst than Winter. In particular, swimming.

    Snowboarding and hockey are what makes the winter olympics interesting.

    Competitions are okay except free-style skiing, snowboarding and figure skating. The reason? Judge decision thus built-in biased. And free-skiing and snowboarding ...... show off joke, equivalent to skateboard.

    Go Chloe Kim. She would likely have won gold in Sochi but they wouldn't let her compete at age 13.

    That's right ! :wink:

    Moto X is exciting, same as Snowboarding, but not Olympic games IMO.

    Chloe Kim gets the gold...and with her 'B' game to boot.

    Congrats to Coloradoan Arielle Gold for getting the bronze.

    That was incredible last night. I wouldn't even say that I'm a big halfpipe fan, but the drama last night, and how he came through in the clutch, was awesome.
