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.

Curling. We got hooked on the sport during the last winter Olympics.

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.
