The only thing interesting in the Winter Olympics is hockey. I'm far more interested in seeing who is the fastest human being (100m and 200m, etc) than watching [I]curling[/] I can't wait.

Since Tyson Gay is injured there is no competition in the 100m or 200m. Its gonna be Usain Bolt FTW unless he gets injured then its kinda up in the air.
The only reason to watch those events will be to see if Bolt pulls a Derek Redmond*. (Not that I hope he does, mind you... but thats the only way he's gonna lose the 100m.)
*Confess... how many of you had to google Derek Redmond??

Not I, because Visa Olympic commercials are highly informative.

Yeah, they say "...but he finished" when in reality he was disqualified because his dad helped him. His official place is DNF. So according to the IOC, Visa is Wrong. Dramatic license... even in a commercial.

I'll watch Swimming & Track only.
I loathe Selfishball (basketball) and I hope against all hope the mens team goes down in flames.

Ill watch it but as I was thinking about it was reminded of the winter olympics in which I was cheering for the european ski teams over those in the US Ski team. Most of the profiles they did on US Athletes made me think they were complete aholes while some of those competing for europe seemed like 1/2 decent blokes.
