The Olympics: So many sports, so little time. Need help deciding which events to watch? We’re here to help. Each day, we’ll give you our three picks for the most watch-worthy events. Here’s what we recommend for Monday, February 10:
MEN’S SPEEDSKATING 500M GOLD FINALS
3 p.m. NBC
These men, skating at the speed of light (or something like that), are what winter commuters wish they looked like when they slip and slide on icy sidewalks.
MEN’S CURLING, USA VS. NORWAY
5 p.m. CNBC
The Americans should win this match if they can keep their eyes on the prize and not on the Norwegians’ famously garish pants, which, much like the sun, should never be looked at directly. —Clark Collis
WOMEN’S ALPINE SKIING SUPER COMBINED GOLD MEDAL
8 p.m. NBC
Lindsey Vonn may be missing from this year’s games, but the U.S. still has a strong showing: Three-time Olympic medalist Julia Mancuso is competing, along with Mikaela Shiffrin, whose coach once said of her, “One day, she could beat everyone at everything.” Yeah, that’s what people say about me, too.
