What is so fascinating about the Winter Olympics?
Maybe it's the fact we get to sit in warm climates or heated living rooms while watching athletes freeze their buns off. Perhaps it's the fast-paced action of of speed skating or incredible rush of watching someone zoom down a steep mountainside -- sometimes followed by a sudden launch into the crisp air.
For others, like myself, it's the "Hey, I could do that!" sports like curling which thrive on technique and strategy. Or maybe it's just the checkered pants or hot Russian rock pushers.
