I Despise Sports…But…

Daily writing prompt
What Olympic sports do you enjoy watching the most?


I’ve never liked sports much, nor have I ever been a willing participant! There’s only one sport I truly enjoy though – watching, that is. Ice Hockey. I love a good game of hockey, but my favorite hockey games occur during the Winter Olympics. 

I always root for my country, the USA, but when the final games come down, if the USA doesn’t make it to the end, I will root for the best team. The best team (in my eyes) could be based on how they played during the duration of the tournament but could also be ‘who’ they are. For example, I will always root for the team that plays against Russia. It doesn’t matter where they are from. 

One of the most exciting games I have ever watched was in the 1998 Nagano games. It was Czech vs. Russia. The Czech Republic had two of the best players at the time, Jaromir Jagr and Dominic Hasek. Hasek wasn’t referred to as “The Dominator” for no reason! Talk about exciting! The Czech Republic kicked some Russian butt! I loved every second of that Gold Medal game!

I enjoy other competitions during the Winter Olympics, as well. I like figure skating, snowboarding, ski jumping, and the luge, but my favorite is and always will be ice hockey.
