They are very artistic but they are not really athletic events. I am not suggesting these people are not in excellent shape but these events are about grace and elegance not athleticism.

By the way I like the Olympics just not certain events.

The entire Winter Olympics don't belong in the Olympics. Just hold the Summer Olympics every 2 years

I will watch the Luge/Skeleton/Bobsled events pretty much every year in addition to Hockey.


I dunno, I guess I'm just weird.

Oh and curling...just to laugh.

How about the modified shuffleboard game where they sweep the ice in front of the puck as it travels across the ice?

The Olympics has numerous events that I wonder about.

I concur wholeheartedly.

Baseball and softball should be reinstated. Baseball is way more of an international sport.

There should only be two Olympic sports. Football and Hockey. And then the top Football team should play the top Hockey team in a game of Hockball, which is football played on ice with sticks.

Yeah, we could have the football team wear track shoes except the WR's who would wear skates.

I'd rather watch a remake of American Gladiators than the Olympics.
