Are you planning on tuning in to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea? The big opening ceremony takes place in the wee hours of the morning tomorrow (3 a.m. PT!), but the games officially kicked off last night with it’s first event.
You may be surprised to know it is also my favorite overall event of the entire winter games…
I honestly can’t explain what I love so much about curling, but probably two Winter Olympics ago I started watching the event coverage and simply couldn’t turn away. Whether it’s the mixed doubles event (like with brother-sister team Matt and Becca Hamilton, pictured above, who played and won last night!), men’s, or women’s — doesn’t matter. I am so intrigued by the skill and focus of the players. Plus, it’s kind of suspenseful!
I’m also quite fond of the women’s figure skating (especially with commentary by the real stars of the Games) and speed skating, which makes my heart race.
How about you? What is your favorite event to watch during the Winter Games? Or, hey — maybe you don’t care about the Olympics at all? I’d love to read your take.
