Do you ever watch the olympics? Winter? Summer? Both?

Do you watch these events when it's not olympic-time? Or do you only watch them during the olympics?

I like to watch depending on the event. I like figure skating and some of the ski events but I'm not big into winter olympics. I much prefer summer. Gymnastics, diving, volleyball....

Oddly - I only watch these sports when the olympics are on. And even then, I'm not a steady viewer.

I love watching gymnastics.  I will watch that outside of Olympics, but rarely during the Olympics

Yup, we watch, but we tend to watch the CBC coverage (still mad that the other Canadian station got the Vancouver coverage, we don't get that station). they actually play LIVE events from 11p-3a, which seems late, but hey, halfway around the world and all. and they tend to show a LOT more than just the US team, which is great, but well.....

I usually watch the winter games, but I chose not to this time because of the politics involved and what they were doing to the dogs. As a LGBT activist and an animal rights activist, I said no to watching the games this time around.

Not this time around. I turned it on on once, and my 4 yo saw that ski, then stop and shoot with a rifle sport, and he's been begging for a gun and to go sling ever since..........he watched the figure skaters and wasn't that impressed!!

Summer for the athletics and cycling 

Winter for it all - I am Swiss :)

I love the Olympics and I watch all of them. 

I do watch some of the sports when they are on and it's not the Olympics. Oddly though I watch them more during the Olympics. There is just something about the Olympics that is so awesome.

@RhiannonMare I had a hard time too with them being in Russia but it is not the athlete's fault and I support our athletes and the athletes of all countries.
