I do like the figure skating but prefer the different skiing events. Not sure how much I will watch but definitely will watch some.

Without a doubt, the ice hockey! I don't think this will be another "miracle" year for Team USA, my personal pick is Russia for the Gold, followed by Team Canada, but watch out for the defending champs, Sweden!

I also like the luge, the bobsled and starting to really like curling. I just saw that a luge athlete from the Republic of Georgia died on a practice run today. I hate it when such a huge and important event starts off under a dark shadow like that.

For me it's the bobsled, ski jumping and figure skating. Never even thought of curling but I think this year I'll watch that too if I can find out when it's on. Thanks Blueliner!

Curling is one of those thing that get addicting. I watched it last time and couldnít turn it off and I donít know why. Personally I find it boring but once you turn it on watch out!

I don't know that I have a "favorite" but I enjoy bits and pieces of all of it. When I watch any of the sports, I marvel at the fact that these men and women are the best at what they do! I think about the hours of training they have put in and the dedication they have had. I don't care if its curling, bobsled, figure skating, downhill, luge, ... I enjoy all of it! I would love to be there!

For me, it's figure skating, but both my DH and I will take a look at snowboarding.
