4 Reasons Why I Am Watching the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics

The Super Bowl is a couple weeks away and the Winter X-Games start tomorrow, but I am just as excited for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics that begin on February 6. Here are just four reasons why.

Curling

It’s shuffleboard on a grand scale and the teams get to wear uniforms like these. The Norwegian curling team’s outfits remind me of John Daly’s Loud Mouth clothing or a band that would be opening for The Beatles and I think it’s awesome.
