    Default 2018 Winter Olympics

    Is anyone interested in watching 2018 Winter Olympics that opened on February 9? Let's discuss and comment about the Winter Olympic games.

    Despite the recent tensions between North and South Korea, I believe Pyeongchang is better and safer than Rio de Janeiro with it's previous Summer Olympics, although i also think the IOC should have awarded the bid to Munich, Germany or Annecy, France to host the Winter 2018 Olympics. Both of the towns lost the bid to Pyeongchang.

    I have never visited South Korea, although I know it is a wealthy first world country. but when I heard the recent news about South Korean hospital fire, I wonder if South Korean buildings are safe?

    I'm disappointed, I've loved the international hockey with the pros in the past but the NHL nixed it this year. I suppose I'll still watch stuff, but not really excited about anything.

    I generally believe the stereotype that the Winter Olympics are inferior to the Summer Olympics, but I enjoy the opening and closing ceremonies and I do love the hockey and curling.

    I really enjoy a lot of the Winter Olympics. I ski so the Super G and the Downhill events are two of my favorites and I like the Ski Jump off the huge ramps. That's my favorite. Although I haven't learned how to snowboard the snowboarding events with the crazy jumps are pretty exciting. I like speed so the Winter Olympics are it for me. And short track skating is like roller derby so that can be pretty exciting as well.

    I LOVE the Olympics - Winter or Summer. So far I'm loving everything, but especially the curling. The Canadian team is (predictably) dominating the field there, and they're very, very sorry.
