Default Winter Olympics 2018 Pyeongchang

Anyone else looking forward to this? I'm sure the opening ceremony will be amazing. I've always wanted to go to South Korea and I'm sure the ice skating will be incredible

I cant get excited for the hockey. It's going to be a bunch of guys who would be considered bad by AHL standards, much less NHL.

I watch the Ski Jumping and Downhill Skiing at the Winter Olympics. Occasional Bobsleigh because of my love of Cool Runnings.

After having so many great hockey tournaments, this one is going to suck sadly.

I pretty much watch everything. Enjoy it all. I am a big fan of biathlon, figure staking, speed staking, cross country skiing, and curling.

Think of it as the Spengler Cup.

Jamaica Women have qualified for the Bobsleigh.

How long until we see an all female reboot of Cool Runnings?

Not a good way to start off the games, I hope it's not an indicator of things to come.

I don't get into the Olympics in general, but Kaetlyn Osmond's my favorite figure skater (and by extension my favorite athlete), so I'm definitely cheering for her.

I love seeing so many Asian-Americans on the US figure skating team. I like this relatively new event, though it's pretty much a guaranteed gold for not-Russia, and every other country fighting for second.

Plus that Nathan Chen is so handsome! I could see him being the guy who makes the sport more mainstream

No. The NHL refused to let their players participate because the IOC wouldnt allow the NHL to market any of the players going/playing in the games.

This year's rosters consist of mostly has beens, never will be's, and a few decent yet to be drafted prospects. (Dahlin)

The opening ceremony was absolutely incredible. One of the best I've ever seen. Absolutely magical especially the bit with the drones
