Are you watching the Winter Olympics on T.V.? How many hours do you watch everyday? What is your favorite sport to watch? Which Olympics do you like better (Winter or Summer)? I feel really sad for the Olympic athlete that died while practicing for the Luge event. Thanks for any replies.

I'm not really very much of a big sports fan to be honest I enjoy playing them, but actually watching them, I find very dull indeed I for one am not watching the winter olympics because I know my home nation, Britain, will not stand a chance in hell of winning much medals (if any at all), because of our disadvantage of lack of snow

I dunno. I thought we might have a chance with skateboarding. I mean, there's enough chavvy youths on aggressive skates zooming around - couldn't we train 'em up?

Thanks for the reply. Ya, I guess it would be hard to be motivated to watch the Olympics if you don't really expect your country to do well in most of the events. But I do watch it anyway since it only comes once every 4 years.

No. About the only thing I would be interested in is the woman's ice skating. The problem with the Olympics is that there is never a specific time given and you have to watch a bunch of stuff you don't want to watch in the hope of seeing something you do. It is just too much of a bother.

Thanks for the reply. Ya, I do agree that they do have to clump all the events together on the same day. They should really put up a timetable of what event is on at a certain time on T.V.

Usually the channel that broadcasts the Olympics for your country should have a schedule on their website listing what events happen on what days and at what times...And seeing that you're from the U.S., I know for a fact that NBC's website has a schedule. You should go check it out, a lot of great events so far...looking forward to the rest of the Olympics!

I am very interested in the Winter Olympics, I have watched speed skating and I love Curling. I would rather watch the winter olpmics, because I don't stay in the house long enough in the summertime to watch them.

Thank you for the Reply. I am just starting to watch the Olympics. Its fun to watch the athletes of many different sports compete. There are some sports that are new to me and I don't get to see everyday. I am just learning about them. I did watch the Summer Olympics in Sydney when it was Winter here because I am in the Northern Hemisphere. lol.

I used to watch it, many years ago. Then I got bored. However, now I've started watching again because they've now made Snowboarding an Olympic sport. Way to go, bro! I kid you not - at the new 2012 stadium in London, there's a spanking new skate park being built. WE NOW KNOW WHY. They may be spotty-faced youths now, but just you wait, America - come the London Olympics, we'll be winning triple gold in Chavdom.

Thanks for the reply. I really did like to watch the Snowboarding events in the Olympics. I enjoyed watching the Snowboard Half Pipe with stars like Shaun White and liked the new Snowboard Cross events. I am much looking forward to the new Ski Cross events introduced in this Olympics.

Yes! I love watching the Olympics...the athletes all worked so hard to become great at what they do, and it's inspiring to watch them compete with the greatest around the world. I usually watch starting with the night time broadcast (8 PM Eastern Time) and go until the news, so 4+ hours each day. I can't watch too much, and I have to do homework while I watch since I have school. .

Thanks for the reply. They do show some of the Olympic events before 8 p.m. here. The tv network really does a good job at condensing down the events through editing. I am just trying to give each sport a chance. I am really getting an understanding for most of the sports of the Olympics.

I have never been a fan of watching sports on TV, but the Winter Olympics has been kept on the TV in the house since they started. ww

Thanks for the reply. Yes, certain sports are more fun to watch than others. I try to watch every sport and understand the rules of the game.
