Fucking love it. Growing up in The North, it's stuck with me. Showcase of some sports that are rarely seen, and enjoyable to watch. Even when these sports are shown during non-Olympic years they're not nearly as fun to watch as when they're in the Olympics.

+1 NBC sucks balls, CBC (biased opinion) is pure win. At least pink-eye fuckface Costas is out.

Both the NHL and its players have always been split on this, having to take a 2 week hiatus from the season, and the risk of injury as well. Been a while since the pros were not in it, which to me is the way it should be (even though the best showcase of skill would be to have the pros play, keeping it amateur keeps it fresh as well).
