There has been more talk about gay rights than there has been about sports when it comes to the Winter Olympics in Sochi. Are you intending on watching? Did you see the opening ceremony?

I didn't even know there was such a thing as the winter olympics until this year. I didn't was the London Olympics, so I won't be watching this either. I saw bits of the opening ceremony on the news, like the part where one of the olympic rings wouldn't open.
Personally, no. I'm not watching them. I find even the summer olympics are less exciting than they used to be, and while i'll have the tv on for bits and pieces, I certainly don't watch the whole lot.

Having said that, the winter olympians are very impressive and very skilled.

I always find it difficult to get into the Winter Olympics, probably because Australians don't compete well in most events and also because of the time difference - I like watching sport live.
I prefer the Winter Olympics to its summer counterpart. I can't wait for the figure-skating.

So do I - the athletes are way more entertaining, and you can watch any event and after about 4 laps, you're an expert. I hear myself saying "oh, no, he didn't get enough amplitude on that one" as if I have a clue....heehee. And who doesn't love snowboard cross??!!
Haha. Too true!

Didn't watch opening ceremony but will have the tv on in the background most of the day - I love the Winter Olympics. Watched mens Downhill last night...and a bit of the womens mogels (just watching hurts my knees!)
No. Being in Australia I have never played any winter sports, so I don't have any interest in watching them.
I missed the opening ceremonies but am watching a lot of the sporting event.

GO CANADA!!!
I usually watch the Winter Olympics. I love, love, love figure skating. However, I disagree strongly with the way LGBT rights are being handled in Russia, so I've decided that this year I won't watch. It's a small way to make a stand, but to me it is important.
Good for you.
I don't know when theyíre starting, but Iíll watch it if itís not shown past my bedtime, or if my friend & I arenít walking the following morning! They may have day time repeats. I did watch the last ones, which I enjoyed, even though Iím NOT a sporty person. but I donít like to see people falling down & hurting them selves. Miro Taylor
