The Most Boring Winter Olympic Events

List Rules
All Winter Olympics events
What are the most boring winter Olympic events? While many events at the Winter Games qualify as "extreme sports" (extremely fun / extremely dangerous), a few are pretty low-key and not all that interesting. Curling is basically Bocce on ice + brooms, which might be more fun to watch if it included cocktails and sunshine. Do you guess who will win? Do you cheer as your favorite curler sweeps the way for his stone? Cross-country skiing as a spectator sport is about as interesting as watching snow melt. Which Olympic sports make you flip the channels in search of bright colors and high-speed chases? Vote up the Winter events that bore you to tears.
