Here comes the Winter Olympics!!

OK, now that football is done here comes the winter Olympics.

Starting Thursday with some skating.

The opening ceremonies will be on Friday.

Not sure why some events start before but there always seems to be a couple.

 

These athletes mostly want to compete.

Although there is some monetary prize monies depending on the country,

most just a to compare their skills.

GO U. S. A.

I've always been a fan of watching the Olympics. But this year I am less enthused after the scandal with Larry Nasser, who molested hundreds of gymnasts for decades and the Olympic authorities and trainers pretty much closed their eyes in order to win medals. It leaves me wondering which other sports have been affected by this attitude of winning medals at any cost.

William,

We always enjoy watching skating and skiing.  And the broadcasters know it is one of the most popular events, and they save it till the end of the broadcast.  We never stay up for it.  We will watch on You Tube instead.  A

I will watch Olympic events that I never even knew existed before just because it's the Olympics. It must be an awesome feeling to represent your county that way.

I will be watching evey chance I get.  It is a lot better than all the killing shows and stupid  sitcoms.

I always tune in when I can but most likely will not see the opening ceremony.
