    Skeleton, Free Style Skiing Aerials, Womens Alpine Skiing, Luge, Ski Jumping. After watching many of the events in 02, I started to like pretty much every sport in the Winter Olympics, although I don't follow the other sports as closely as I do skating. During the 02 Olympics my TV set was never on a non NBC station. I loved the intensity and passion the all athletes put into their respective sports.

    I love the snowboarders, so half-pipe is what I'm looking forward to.

    Besides the figure skating. I'll watch all of them when it's on. I promise not switch the channel, except Hocky and Curling.

    Now, mzheng - curling is rather interesting in that "lets slow down while driving to see who the cop's pulled over" kind of way .

    (Actually, I have watched it on Canadian tv, and it really isn't bad to watch. Bowling comes to mind as an American version of curling on tv -- can't think of a European comparable. Maybe snooker?)

    I'll more than likely watch the downhill skiing and speed skating events.

    Which if you think about it (considering how many countries are in the Olympic movement), may not be a sport, but a small engineering feat in and of itself

    Love it all, from Opening to Closing.

    Do have a particular soft spot for biathlon.

    what is the upside down on a sled down the curvy course called? It was just resurrected after many years absence in the last Winter games and the American grandson of a medal winner in the sport medaled with a picture of grandpa tucked into his pants! I really liked that-exciting to watch!

    I like watching all of them (even Curling) but the one that interests me most is Downhill Skiing and this year has Bode Miller who will be most interesting if goes to the top alcoholess,.

    I think you mean the skeleton.

    I'm most looking forward to curling and ski-jumping.

    I love it all! I also love the dramatic backstory sagas of the athletes. Seems like every night there is some competitor that has overcome huge adversity to get there and it gives me the shivers.

    Alpine, bobsled and luge, along with ski jumping are my favs.
