    If I wasn't Canadian I could make an arguement about curling not needing any athleticism at all, but it's one more medal for us, so

    Curling Rocks!

    Ice dancing I think takes an awful lot of endurance and coordination, precision of movement and teamwork. Those couples really race around the rink- something that doesn't show very well looking at a TV screen.

    I love the figure skating, but why is it that they always fall in the Olympics? That couple from Canada rocked last night, but to fall in the last step, that sucked! They probably would've been first.

    Kewl, you read my mind about the 2-man luge thing. I was watching that thinking Eeeeewww!! :roll

    Sorry Canoe, but I channel surf during curling. I do love the hockey.

    Don't confuse figure skating with ice dancing, two totally different things. I lke Figure skating, can't stand ice dancing.

    Aww come on kewl, I like ice dancing as well as figure skating!

    Maybe it would help if they run the zamboni more often! I think all that slivering if ice on the rink makes them fall!

    Personally, since each sport requires the dedication and sacrifice of the athletes I find it hard to call any of them lame.

    Hey, what about speed skating? I LOVE to watch that sport - I LOVE THOSE THIGHS!!!!!!

    Seriously, my daughter was a speedskater in high school and it is one sport where the athletes keep trying for their personal best-- the competition is against yourself and that was so cool because it encouraged the girls to feel good about themselves and cheer each other on. Yes, they seem to be racing against each other in a race, but it's their improving their times that matters most.

    Oooopps!!! Should have read your top info better-- I thought you were polling us for our favorites!

    Ooooops! Sorry, Paprikat! The British women's curling team all seem to have Scots accents! A bronze in the women's skeleton luge isn't so bad, either! Do you think the cameraman at the start is a wannabe Gynaecologist? Those closeups!

    I just can't help but be freaked out by skeleton. The whole head-first thing just scares me. At least if they hit the wall in Luge they hit it with their FEET, not their HEAD and NECK!!!
