    Is it just me or are the Winter Olympics Boring?

    I dunno, maybe ice hockey sometimes is interesting and a few of the short speed skating events...but ice skating, all the skiing events, even all seems pretty boring to me. And I like to ski but watching it on TV - boring.

    The Summer Games are so much more interesting.

    Hi Ed. I don't purposely go out of my way to watch the Winter Olympics, I just happened to catch by chance, the downhill speed skating time trials last night. I was floored. I can't imagine going at those speeds with out a vehicle to surround you. I was on pins and needles watching some of those guys.

    I'm actually enjoying them From what I saw today Canada got it's first ever Gold medal in Women's Moguls


    Women's Moguls: Jennifer Heil of Spruce Grove, Alta., captured Canada's first podium finish of the games by winning the gold medal. She ranked first after the preliminary round with a score of 26.67 points and posted a mark of 26.50 in the final.

    Watching her come down that hill was awesome.

    The Canadian Women's hockey team crushed Italy in that game.

    Canadian women crush Italy 16-0 in hockey

    Canada opened the Olympic women's hockey tournament with a 16-0 pounding of host Italy on Saturday.

    Prior to Saturday's game, no Canadian player had scored more than one goal in a period at the Olympics, but Ouellette erased that with two goals in the first two minutes of the game.

    Canada outshot the hosts 47-5 in the first 40 minutes and 66-5 overall.

    I saw the beginning of the game and was stunned when they got 2 goals in the first 2 minutes.

    Not boring for Canadians

    Seriously, I didn't even know we were in an Olympic year until I saw the "Nordic Combine" on TV today. I'm somewhat of a sports fan, but the Olympics don't draw me in at all, summer or winter.

    I personally find everything about the Olympics boring. Summer or winter.

    I don't find them terribly exciting, especially since I know who very few of the athletes are. But now that football season is over (except for the pro-bowl tomorrow), I don't mind having it on in the background. I am interested in the snowboarding events though. I snowboard and I could never dream about being as good as the few clips that I have seen in this Olympics.

    No, but this dam movie I got from Netflix is boring. Uggghhh... Anyone seen Collateral with Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx?

    I've always liked the winter Olympics and found the summer games terribly boring. You couldn't pay me to watch the summer games.
