    Not really.

    Are you? If so, what sports/events are you looking forward to watching?

    Well, I'm Dutch, so speed skating, of course. The downhill events can be fun. Not a fan of "artistic" events.

    By far the best event, Ski Cross and Snowboard Cross.

    Also love the slopestyle events.

    It will be a few late nights for me catching this live though.

    Is there a basketball tournament? I really don’t follow the Olympics but basketball is a winter sport. Asking ‘cause I’m curious if any NBA players will be competing in the Olympics.

    It's part of the Summer Olympics. Maybe it pre-dates the Winter Olympics, but now it would be impossible to get the NBA and NCAA to give up their games for a month.

    Great point - I had forgotten basketball being a winter sport meant NBA players (not to mention college players) are playing the game in America during the winter.

    Thanks for reply

    I think the NHL is keeping their players out this year, so I don't know how the teams are made up. We didn't have this issue until they let the Pro's in.

    Well, we're doing well, at least. We'll slip down once the skating is done with.

    Any Germans or Norwegians in this forum?
