    Anyone excited for the Winter Olympics? Are there any particular sports that you are excited to watch? Any countries you like to cheer for besides your own?

    Sports: Hockey and sports you never get to watch outside of the Olympics (which is most of them).
    Countries: Underdog countries and really small delegations. Looking at the medal count from the 2006 games, I would have been cheering for Australia (1 gold, 1 bronze last time around).

    I live in Vancouver and the buzz is getting CRAZY...it's gonna be a fun couple of weeks. My condo is right next to the Slovak house and blocks away from many event sites. I am pretty excited about it

    Lebanon (I'm Half canadian, half lebanese) has 3 athletes competing in skiing, so I'll cheer for them even though their likelihood of medaling in their events is slim to none

    I have lots of friends coming from all over canada, we'll watch some hockey, speed skating and curling!

    That's not an option because you should be interested.

    He an Aussie, they don't have winter sports!

    I will watch as much as I can ,but not easy due to the time differences. Luckily I get home early from work.

    I love watchin the winter olympics, as long as I'm sittin down here where it's about 80F or next to the fireplace when it's not 80.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    Au contraire my good man. Take a look at the historical medal standings - they won a gold and a bronze in 2006. Some Aussies are practicing something.

    Not only are we politically correct we now are being told what we should be watching on the idiot box? Surely if we are going to conduct meaningful, life predicting polls all options must be covered?

    I think it's safe to assume that "The Winter Olympics are soon???" represents your distaste of the Winter Olympics.

    EDIT: Evidently I don't type enough. Good thing speed typing isn't a game.
