What is it about the Winter Oympics that I like so much? I have never ice skated or gone downhill skiing and dont know the first thing about it. I will never watch the World Championships. But when its the Olympics, it doesnt matter. Watching the results of years of training and hearing the background stories on the athletes are priceless.. At night, if the local teams aren't playing, the Olympics are on in the Freimund household. So bring on the luge,figure skating and the 500 meter speedskating, I can't get enough of it.
