    Summer, alot more sports I'm into!!
    If life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade. Then find someone who's life has given them vodka and have a party.

    I look at you and I see 2 men. The man you are and the man you ought to be. One day those 2 will meet and should make for one hell of a football player!

    If this is torture, chain me to the wall

    I like both but I do prefer Winter a little more over summer cause I grew up on skis.

    Summer, but barely!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Summer, but by a slim margin. I like gymnastics and swimming.

    Re: Which Olympics do you prefer: Winter or Summer?

    I would have to say both- Why? Speed Skating! I absolutely love it. Ever since Eric Heiden won the most Gold in Speed Skating! He is now a Doctor in Sports Medicine. He also raced road bicycle's in the 86 Tour De France. I also enjoy the decathlon in Summer and also the 400m relay. And of course Road cycling (Women's and Men's). Also enjoy certain events in Track Cycling(velodrome)Cool stuff.

    The calves and quadriceps on these guys in Speed Skating are enormous,they have so much Power and speed!

    Re: Which Olympics do you prefer: Winter or Summer?

    I'll keep my response as brief as I can...even though I'm a SoCal guy, I prefer the winter games.

    I've now become a figure skating fan more than once every four years...

    I love watching the skiing events and the bobsleds (maybe because I've never gotten to use them here)...

    I love the hockey because it's (at least in the past) been more fun to watch than the NHL with the different rules...and I do like some pros being able to take part...

    Don't care for the Summer games nearly as much.
    Track and field has always bored me, as well as swimming. Olympic boxing has become a joke in recent years, and while I hated the NBA "dream team" thing it was fun to see a bunch of egotistical overpaid whiners take it in the shorts a few years back...(Can't explain why I feel different about pros in hockey and hoops)...

    Having said that it was a thrill to cover the 84 Games here...to see the Opening Ceremony at the Coliseum...and learn everything I could about rowing and canoeing, since I covered some of the best athletes in the world competing at our own very own Lake Casitas, near Ojai in Ventura County, for two weeks (for my local radio station).

    That's my feeling...
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    summer for sure!!! i only watch ice skating during winter.

    btw, why don't they say winter OLYMPICS? even on the radio, one sports guy said winter olympics & quickly corrected himself and changed it to winter GAMES.

    I like them both. Winter has so many sports in which the athletes can seriously injure themselves. How can one NOT watch it?

    Re: Which Olympics do you prefer: Winter or Summer?

    OTOH, I can think only of Gymnastics for Summer. And I watch that, too. Maybe the bicycling.

    I like to watch sports in which the athletes are moving faster than a runner. Curling? No. I don't normally get to the Lido Deck until after sunset.

    Re: Which Olympics do you prefer: Winter or Summer?

    Winter - curling (ok so it may be a bit more fun to play then watch, I prefer to play), - hockey (I mean where else can you get 13-0 in 98, 16-0, 12-0 this year in women's hockey?) - bobsledding, skiing. Ok so some of these may be more interesting if you play them but still. And there seems to be less "drug" contraversy in Winter.
