2018 Winter Olympics

Recommended Posts

Starts on February 9th.

I am a bigger fan of the Summer Olympics, but enjoy the Winter games as well.

Main events I will be watching will be the bobsled and the speed skating.

Anybody else plan on watching some of it? Favorite event?

I shall watch the sliding down on a teatray event, for sure. Called the 'skeleton' because you are likely to end up as one.

I like the one where 6 skiers set off from the top of a course at the same time, and they race down to the bottom of the course.

Whoever doesn't fall wins.

Quite enjoy the ice hockey.

Hope that we're not successful at curling again. No offence to the Scots who make up the GB team but it really isn't a riveting spectator sport.

Be fair, it’s like bowls on ice. I used to love a bit of bowls on a Sunday mid morning when I was going over (it’s amazing what **** we used to watch when there were only 1/2/3/4/5 channels (delete according to your age, for me it’s 4)).

Nowt wrong with bowls  (or curling) as participation sports.

They're just not great for spectating.
