I would have had the NHL gone to the Olympics but now that's off the table, Olympic hockey will be dreadful. I might take a gander at curling though as we're still sending our best against the world's best.

Curling sounds fun.  Why will hockey be bad?

There won’t be anything else on NBC for two weeks. Or maybe three weeks.

Bad may be a tad overdramatic, but it won't be best on best is more what I'm saying, the best players are in the NHL, who won't be going due to China's draconian covid testing rules. This puts the playing countries in a bit of a bind for talent, the level of competition will resemble a tournament known as the Spengler Cup, which takes the best of the European leagues, Canada always presents a team at that tournament made up of ex NHL players who now play in the euro leagues and AHL talent (feeder system), so while these are pro hockey players, it's not best of the best, which is what the Olympics should be about. 

Curling will be dull to most people who don't get it, but actually it's so competitive that nearly any Nation can win, China has actually thrown a lot of resources at curling, I expect them to be very competitive.

They put a lot of money into all Olympic sports they participate in.

Being from south Texas I am not interested in winter sports.

I've never snow skied and have no desire to try. I don't even like snow.

I expect that Covid and the Chinese "no protest" rules will cause problems.
