Winter is definitely short track speed skating. It's like roller derby on ice. Very entertaining. Somewhat sad that crashes often determine winners, but the entertainment is definitely there. I also like ski jumping for some weird reason, hockey and curling.

Summer is the track events, especially the craziness that is the heptathlon (spelling?). I love the marathon for getting a chance to see lots of the street level in the cities the Olympics are held in.
