Sorry, not much of a fan....May possibly catch an event, or two, channel surfing, but that's it.

I lost interest when the Polish ski team wan the gold medal and took it back to Poland to have it bronzed....

Ouch, Jeff, another groaner. I thought you were planning on watching the uphill skiing! Or the roller derby on ice (AKA short track speed skating).

Joan will take in every minute of the ice skating. Joe will watch the hockey and speed skating. If it's a bad TV night, maybe we'll watch other events. Tonight AMC has "The Day the Earth Stood Still", so we won't be watching the opening ceremonies. Olympics are OK, but the rare good sci-fi movie (most are awful) is a better bet.

The oldest Olympic athlete is still younger than me. Boy, what a bummer.

I enjoy the speed skating, short track skating, downhill skiing, slalom, giant slalom, and bobsled. I also like figure skating and doubles sometimes. I know ice dancing is difficult but it does not move me as much.

Jim Shea, who won the gold in Skeleton last Winter Olympics didn't make the team this time but was a third generation olympian!! Also a local Lake Placid native, and don't forget to follow the controversy of the skeleton coach for the US team that wasn't allowed to go to the games!!
