Favorite Winter Olympic Sport

So now that the Olympics are nearing a close, what are y'alls favorite winter olympic sports, or which did you enjoy watching this year if you watched anything?

Personally I think I just found my favorite in the 500m short track, either that or the short track 5000m relay, man THAT is a trip. Apolo Anton Ohno (Seattle native - woot) won gold in the 500m, silver in the 1000, and team USA took bronze in the relay. Holy CRAP, the koreans are fast, Ahn (Apolo's rival) just flies, and both the koreans and the canadians were haulin arse on the relay, they were miles ahead of the competition. Anybody see any short track events?

You just posted this because we were talking about it last night!

I've watched the ice skating/dancing ever since I was little...but yet i seem to keep straying to anything with Apolo in it. And i like watching the men's/women's halfpipes.

Owner, for some strange reason, has decided to spend her money on Photography Equipment. Preferably Canon. Any chance of Donations to a poor college Equine Science student? hehe

I can try, can't I?....

Oh, and I can't wait for Halloween Weekend!!!

Hockey for sure. (even though I think our team should be deported after this performance, pros my ***) I liked it alot more when it was amature only.

I also like the downhill, snowboarding, and curling. I do respect the biathlon, all that skiing then to shoot that accurately.

Sucked that I didn't get to watch much of the games, some jackass at my college decided it would be a good idea to put midterms during the olympics

Of course everyone loves a hard worker, they do all the work!

This year, it seemed the guys congregated in my room to watch the Curling matches. I've always been a fan of the Norweigan drive-by events as well.

fyi: the skydiving thing: know those rooms with the fans in the floor & you can practive freefall? they had one of them, except it was out in the open, no walls, so you would just see a guy floating about 60ft above the floor
