I love watching the Olympics. It’s a time when the greatest athletes around the world gather to compete in a large variety of sports, disciplines, and events.

Lately the games have taken on a new look with an increase in the trendy and popular events. This year they have added Team Figure Skating and Slope Style Skiing/Surf Boarding to mention a couple.

What in the world are these events? Why have they been included in the Olympics? They have the look of the X-Games!!

Call me a traditionalist, but I’d rather watch the biathlon, where cross country skiers combine their skiing and shooting skills. I can’t wait to watch ice hockey and other great team sports. I even get excited about watching curling.

I love this time of year when the best gather to showcase their skills. Please leave the fads and trendy “sports” home.

That’s the way I see it.
