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.

Gotta stick with my snowboarding. Team USA completely rocked the entire snowboarding category this year. Plus Shawn White's just a badass

Nordic Combined skiing is the best. I loved watching that.

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
