They do each every 4 years, but they are now staggered so they do one of two every two years. They used to do them both in the same year, but they changed that after the '92 Albertville winter games, so there was only a 2 year period between those and the '94 Lillehammer winter games.

Because it's a massive thrill? Why would you want to toboggan? Or ski? It's fun to go fast down a hill covered in ice and snow.

That being said, the track in Vancouver is apparently by far the fastest and most dangerous track in the world, according to the sledders; the IOC has already instructed Moscow to not come close to emulating the speeds in Vancouver; they were concerned about this happening before the crash.

If you're American and you dominate your sport, then yes, you do pretty well. Maybe even if you're just an Olympic athlete, you get a nice chunk of change, I'm not sure how you guys do it.

Most other athletes make very little money... Not like, poverty line income, but they aren't raking in 100K a year or anything elaborate.

And most of the participants will do their thing in the next couple of weeks and then fade back inot obscurity, where they belong.

Why does the nation think that we benefit from individual accomplishments?

As far as the personalities, it's a combination of history/culture and Bettman. Hockey's the ultimate team sport, and the players respect the team concept so much, they don't want the spotlight to themselves. At the same time, Bettman is so awful at marketing, it probably wouldn't matter anyway.

As far as the NHL product, I agree... there's more action than the other sports. It wasn't until I played it that I took the time to understand the rules and understood how much skill it takes... and the other sports will probably always have the advantage when it comes to teaching kids the sport.

Heres how www.dictionary.com defines "sports"

an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature, as racing, baseball, tennis, golf, bowling, wrestling, boxing, hunting, fishing, etc


I would say all Olympic events require some form of "athletic activity" correct?

Heres how www.dictionary.com defines "sports"

an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature, as racing, baseball, tennis, golf, bowling, wrestling, boxing, hunting, fishing, etc


I would say all Olympic events require some form of "athletic activity" correct?

By that definition, what I heard from 2 dorm rooms down the hall in college 3 or 4 nights a week would be a sport... hell, if we're including fishing and hunting...

These Olympics would be better if they added the Colt McCoy toss as an official event

I've never been any big fan of the Olympics, having said that, i always check out something here & there, just to say i did... womens gymnastics & figure skating for starters. I'll also prolly watch some of the X Games style boarding action if i come across it.

But i dont begrudge these people a lil glory, they bust their motherlovin asses from what i know, obviously for what it can bring them, but also to bring glory & honor to their nation.

My max viewing time will be somewhere in the 2 hour range.

I know it sounds crazy, but I found myself being strangely entranced by curling back in 2006. I'm not sure why, but it was actually really interesting to watch.

Have you ever actually watched a hockey game? I will confess that the sport's personalities are simply awful, there are two compelling characters in the entire sport. And one of them's a douchebag, the other speaks english like he's the bad guy in an 80s action flick.

That being said, the actual NHL product is probably the best overall of any of the NFL, NBA, MLB.

Yes I have a handful of times and I just can't get into it. I have friends that love it and the reason I have kept trying to watch it from time to time. We have a local team and one of these days I will go check it out to see if live is more interesting.

**** 'em? Eh, I disagree.

These people are amazing athletes in sports that don't have much of an audience. This is their chance to be the best at what they do... on the biggest stage they'll ever have.

More power to 'em, IMO.

I agree. Well said.
