Hey everyone! Figured I'd start a thread about what everyone's favorite Olympic even is since the Olympics start today. I have to say my favorite events are bobsled and luge. I heard that some go down luge headfirst, which is called skeleton. Crazy son-of-a-guns to go down headfirst, that's just plain crazy!

Yeah speed-skating is sweet as well, especially short track. One thing I would like to add though, is that since there are people from different parts of the world that read this that, that people refrain from saying anything about what has happened in any events because some countries know the results 12 hrs before people in other parts do. Like the opening ceremony is just being shown here in the U.S.

Thanks,

Fenor

If there are folks that follow the above sports heavily then nothing is spoiled ... thats why I never elaborated ...
But you're right, details and such should be kept to a minimum ...

Speed skating is good, bobsled and the downhill skiing(weve got a good team so im hoping for a medal for GB), gonna follow the curling as the team is all Scottish and is also standing a good chance fo a medal). And other than that ill be watching whatever is on when i get the time for television. Should be a good games, Olympics are great.

They are just crazy folks anyway, and the russians seem to play every sport these days for the sake of it, you guys had the downhill sking yet, what a result, that guy as a right jammy bugger to pull that off.

Being Canadian, probably hockey. Although bobsled and a few others are cool.
