    Just about there, I love the winter Olympics more than the summer, this year there are two girl skiers competing for the US from my tiny Valley. Still think the Men's GS is my favourite competion....

    The one with the brooms and the skiing just for the crashes. Everything else is just dicking about in cold stuff.

    The Ski and Snowboard cross are worth watching.

    Some of the events are far more impressive if you have attempted them yourself - you gain a better appreciation of how gifted the athletes are.

    Curling & Biathlon for me...little tip watch the Biathlon events on Eurosport or if they have them on the red button on there.

    Last time the BBC coverage involved showing whoever won just skiing over the last half mile which although the end of the race means nothing in terms of entertainment & tactics.

    Luge love the idea of flying over the ice on a modified tea tray.

    Snow angels, bumper hitching, igloo construction, snowman building and snowball fights all should be included.

    BBC will show it, and it'll be all over their website too.
