VIDEO: Olympic Action is Underway!

While the Opening Ceremony is tonight, competition is already heating up in Pyeongchang.

 

The familiar drums and bugels of NBC's Olympic Theme Song have started to creep back into our lives as the world turns its eyes to Pyeongchang, South Korea for the Games of the 23rd Winter Olympiad. While the Opening Ceremony is tonight, the games have already begun with action in curling, luge, freestyle skiing and figure skating. While normally those sports don't move the needle for me (I freely admit I treat curling in the Olympics the same way the casual fan treats soccer around World Cup time), it's always enjoyable to watch something I don't normally watch while supporting the Red, White, and Blue. And with the failure that occurred with the US Soccer team missing the World Cup and the FIBA Basketball World Cup being moved to 2019, these Olympics represent the best chance to show off our patriotic pride in the sporting arena.

What events are you looking forward to seeing over the next two weeks?
