Other than nationalistic pride, I have no reason to watch. I don't ski, hate skating, and don't have a clue about hockey. Some of the cross country skying/shooting events are interesting but with the medias' hatred of guns they aren't going to show much of them.

Why watch it. Nothing but human interest stories and stupid ads.

Maybe it is just me, but do we seem a little weak this year as a nation in the Olympics? (besides snowboarding).

I don't blame you and it's completely understandable. While I don't think you have to love winter to enjoy the Winter Olympics, I do think liking winter or having some sort of fun experience with a winter event helps.
But mostly winter sux. :)

Every evening I have tried watching it. About 5 minutes in I can't stand it anymore and change the channel. I'm so sick of hearing about the struggles of these athletes and how hard their lives are.
