    So what sports do you like or have a once every 4 years passing interest in?

    I like:

    1. Ski jump! Yes, I watch it for the crashes.

    2. Some of the downhill skiing, again for the crashes.

    3. Hockey, if USA is doing good.

    4. Speed Skating, again... crashes.

    5. Snowboarding things. Crashes


    Don't really care for:

    1. Figure skating. Even when there are crashes they're not very good.

    2. Skiing and shooting things. Why?

    3. Curling. Would be better if the stone was big enough to crush people.


    Things that should be in the Winter Olympics but aren't:

    1. Basketball. Basketball is a winter sport. Should be played in the WO because the drama of watching players leave the NBA for a few weeks to play would be great drama. No Lebron, Curry, Durant for a few weeks, very fun. And if none of the NBA wanted to leave we could send Meyers.

    You should get into the ice dancing. There’re some spectacular crashes there. Bobsledding too.

    Curling and shooting would be AWESOME! Instead of using those little brooms they could alter the stone's path by shooting it. Post someone up at the top of the arena so it's kinda of a sniper type of thing.

    Forgot about bobsledding. Anything with a risk of death is a great Olympic event.

    Well it is in Korea, so I suppose they could have races through the mine fields.

    Looks like her skate just cut off her arm.

    I believe Jerry Seinfeld once said that he is a fan of the louge. It's like Bobsled, but it's just Bob.

    Hockey is #1 for sure. No NHL players this year tho, which kind of sucks, but also might give some parity to the tournament. 1980 style!

    So, when does the first USA hockey game start? That's all I care about.

    Ski jumping is basically the national sport here in the Winter and we are damn good at it. Can't wait for tomorrow!

    Ski Jumping with guns should totally be a thing. Much better than skiing and shooting. The jumper could yell, "PULL!" and they lunch him off the jump and as he flies he shoots targets on the ground.

    Downhill speed skiing, luge/skeleton/bobsled, speed skating (fuck Davis though; what a whiny little brat), hockey (if the US is doing well, otherwise I could give a shit less), and snowboarding. In no particular order.

    And minor leaguers. And foreign leaguers. And maybe even some plumbers.

    I'm pretty sure Mickey "Sully" Sullivan of USA hockey (#69) works construction in Southie.
