1. In general (we'll get to the politics in a few) do you watch the Winter Olympics?
Yes, I do enjoy watching many of the sports.
2. Winter or Summer?
Both, but I like the Summer games better -- especially swimming and diving.
3. What are your favorite winter events? Do you follow any of them outside the game?
The ice skating in its various forms is my favorite; however, I do like a lot of the others such as the skiing, luge, etc. No, I only watch these during the Olympics.
4. Which sport needs to stay and which one needs to go?
I like the new snowboarding sports.
I could do without the summer beach volleyball!
5. Which is the weirdest sport?
Several are weird especially Curling, but still fun to watch.
6. What is your POV on boycotting The Olympics by countries and or athletes?
I don't think I would participate or encourage a family member to go to countries where terrorism is a distinct possibility such as Russia. Politically, I don't like Russia's anti-gay attitude.
7. Are you boycotting NBC or any Olympic sponsors?
No, but I think that Jim McKay and ABC were much better at broadcasting the Olympics.
8. Do you think boycotts are effective?
9. If you were an athlete what would you do?
I would not have gone to Russia this year -- see #6.
