2014 Winter Olympics



All things Sochi...


Personally, I am excited to see speedskating, luge, Bode Miller, curling, and the biathlon!

Hockey for me. Every seems to be on so early that it'll be hard to random events. My gf really wants to watch figure skating too. Maybe I'll catch the speed skating or skiing or something if its on.

Really excited about hockey (obviously) and ski jumping (grew up cheering for Adam Małysz and learned to love it, really popular in Poland). I'll probably also watch a couple biathlon contests as well but that will be it, I guess. Never been into skiing or ice skating or snowboarding of any kind, same for curling.

Love that picture, good luck boys!

I'm going to watch hockey for sure and maybe more of the events earlier in the day. I hate how NBC chops everything up in the prime time broadcast, which is tape delayed anyway.

Will probably watch some ski jumping, biathlon and freestyle skiing, you know when hockey isn't on.
Maybe some curling as well.

I have the problem though that right in the middle of the olympics I'm moving to Poland which probably will cause me to miss some things I would've liked to see.

Adam Malysz was a beast. He beat our guys so many times

This was Nike's opportunity to shine and they blew it

He really was. Ahonen wasn't too bad either, though ;-)! It's a shame Finland doesn't have any elite jumpers right now!

Hoping Stoch can grab a (couple) medal(s) for Poland, he should have a shot - especially on the small hill. Unfortunately the rest of the team isn't in as good of a shape as I was hoping. At the beginning of the season I thought they might be able to get a medal in the team competition but it doesn't seem so.

Anybody else into ski jumping?

Also love the picture of our olympians!

It's better than the summer, that's for sure.

I don't know how much I will watch considering I got school during majority of the events, I heard that NBC will show it in type delay. If that is the case I think I will have some time to get to watch some skiing, snowboarding, and bobsledding (freakin awesome event).

Hockey, biathlon, ski jumping. But I like almost every sport so I can't wait for the Olympics to start.
