A salesman from the funeral home called last night, asking if I wanted to buy a plot.
I said that's the last thing I need.

Not one second

Joel Theriot said...

I watched that teenager win the snowboarding Gold - Chloe Kim. That was a blast.

Elle Kaye said...

None, but the opening ceremonies were background noise when I hung out with friends.

Liz Pop said...

Whatever's been on tv at the gym

Bubble said...

I was in a galaxy far far away, I didn't know Olympics are this year, found out yesterday 😂
I don't watch tv lol, I prefer to do ice skating myself.

Samantha Willow said...

Whilst enjoying sushi the other night we watched ice skating. We debated the performances with the employees over sake lol

Chase said...

Maybe 15min to see highlights of Kim and White win half pipe. I'm now done. I simply don't care for the whole manufactured heart tugging to try and kill time and sell garbage.
Show me competitions. But showing the competitions costs money.

None, as we've learned the Olympics are like tween shows, modeling, etc just recruitment schemes for predators. Not to mention that if I want to watch drug users move fast or do crazy stunts I'll just get an Uber to a bad block.

none^^

Anna said...

Watching a whole event? Only the curling.
Highlights of the rest.

Lisa Wolfinger said...

I am going to watch the men's and women's individual figure skating. Normally I watch a lot of the Olympics but I have been too busy this year- it kind of bums me out.

This years olympic for me was the launch of the Falcon Heavy.

Daily but depending on the sport I pay little attention to it.

Kam White said...

Very little, because whenever there's something on that we think might be interesting, NBC squelches our enthusiasm with its abysmal coverage and commentary.

Glitter said...

Hardly anything. Can't stand all the fluff.

Lau Ra said...

Tried to watch skating but was already finished..

just sayin' said...

Zero, though I usually watch some. Too distracted and depressed by the news this year.

cc423 said...

10 to 15 minutes tops. Korea looks cold.

David Howes said...

Very, very little!

Sara, Making It Work said...

This & that. I do love figure skating. I flipped my shit when the Canadian guy skated to Jeff Buckley. He's a longtime favorite of mine.

zerooptions said...

None at all

Seachica said...

Not much. CBS won me over with Celebrity Big Brother

hothotheat said...

Figure skating only.

Truthseeker said...

Hours, I of course have to DVR the entire thing and sometimes, instead of fast forwarding through the commercials, i am saving those precious moments for the talking. To be fair, we are big Shaun White fans, and Kelly Clark, so we watched that, and the ice skating, hubby likes the luge, and we like a small bit of the skiing, we are about done though with what we care to see.

WickedBee said...

Tons. I love the Olympics and was in training as a gymnast to compete.
I'm honestly glad I quit when I did, what with all the rapiness and all...

Florin said...

As much curling as my wife can tolerate, all the ice skating, some snowboard, some ski jump, some biathlon, and some moguls so far. Watching through the streaming app on my Roku is WAY better than watching the broadcasts. You get much more technical and less emotional commentary on events.

xyzxyz33 said...

We've been watching A LOT.
We've been watching everything on CBC
because NBC sucks so bad.
They've politicized the Olympics and it's disgusting.
AND...CBC seems to do a better job on the coverage overall.

Red Gerard was amazing and Shaun White's win was emotional.
Downhill and Slalom are unbelievable.
We've been having fun with the whole thing.

ardleighstreet said...

I have watched highlights of wins and that's it. I have no desire to watch it.

Dusty Fairy said...

None. Screw Korea and their dog torturing, mutiliating and eating ways. They are repulsive and the US should have boycotted this whole fiasco.

Gator said...

Red Gerard, Shaun White, Chloe Kim. Mikaela Shiffrin rocked it last night

-B said...

All the womens and mens hockey games. Just wish the men's talent was better. The woman's USA vs Canada game was great!

Han Niam said...

I’ve watched whenever the wife and I are at her parents’s house We got a huge kick out of Young Sun-Bin and his Iron Man helmet.

That was one amazing Skeleton run last night!

Han Niam said...

*Yung. (Cut it out, autocorrect!)

GossipLife2 said...

none

Cee Kay said...

Absolutely zero seconds. But I see that Canada is #4 in the medal count (after some extremely deserving Europeans), so yay for us!

Fairylights said...

Every night so far. I've even recorded the nights we've been busy.

None. Wake me up when it's time to watch the World Cup. ⚽️👩🏻🇫🇷🏆

💛

Freckles said...

Luge and half pipe

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Honestly the one only Olympics-related thing i watched was that Grinch teaser trailer of him figure skating in his mind with Christina Aguilera playing in the background.

I love The Grinch (me every awards season). 🖤

Scandi Sanskrit said...

PS: Happy Chinese New Year to anyone celebrating! 🗽👩🏻🚕🍂💛

Terry Teratoma said...

Tons & tons - watching the skeleton right now. Winter Olympics is my crack. 🇨🇦

Cuddlebutt said...

None.

Sd Auntie said...

I watched ice skating, know boarding, shall and luge!! I love it!!!! Shawn White is awesome as well as the skaters. Draw the line at hockey. Boring. Norwegian guys are something else❤

Sd Auntie said...

Shalom too.

Hortensia said...

The dog and I sit on the couch; I drink wine, she cuddles while the Olympics are on.
Waiting to see Lyndsey Vonn win another medal.
It's absolutely fascinating to watch the world's most elite athletes at their best.
Just totally amazing, especially the figure skating.

KittensRUs said...

None. Boycotting because of the dog meat issue.

ihsahn77 said...

I've been watching curling. I find it strangely appealing.

Xpensive Hobutt said...

I've been watching for upskirt and pussy/hard nips shots. The women in the luge all have eraser tip hard nipples.

lucy said...

I had to seek out this post just to voice my disgust. I have been really trying to watch the Olympics but where the heck are they? seems NBC used to broadcast all day not just starting primetime with reruns.

lol other night I caught some competition with skiers with guns strapped to their backs skiing on ice then pausing to shoot stuff and then they slid out of the arena to ski uphill then down and what I must presume to shoot more stuff because it again cutaway to commercial. coverage is terrible. then was it last night that i was watching ski competition where they declared a winner switched to another event and then said there was big development on last competition, cut to commercial (I'm thinking someone crashed and got hurt) then they come back to say they declared wrong winner. competition wasn't even done wtf. and they roll figure skating so late and I don't even think it is live!
but LOL at Johnny Weir(?) and that hair omg . I hadn't been seeing him merely hearing him but well worth the midnight viewing. I don't even have anything to compare that to, never seen anything like it in my life

regardless, very disappointed with NBC. programming infomercials while Olympics are being played. I just don't understand

Mark said...

I watch women's curling on CBC, and root for the Canuckettes. They call the games on CBC, rather than spending the time explaining the sport. One can pick up the rules and nuances without all the condescension.

Mark said...

I didn't watch any of the mixed doubles curling, so I never heard of (nor seen) Anastasia Bryzgalov until the doping scandal broke. Looks like I missed out, eh?
