Going to miss covering the Honda Classic to cover the Olympics. I remember Terry Gannon covered the Winter Olympics in 2014, but Feherty covering them could get interesting.

Damon Hack is going to cover the biathlon.

It’s gotta be tough to provide color commentary on the biathlon and make it seem really interesting.

Although the endurance necessary for that sport is impressive.  

Curling is another sport that would be tough to talk about.

I'm in the camp of those who think he's great and insightful, but he definitely has that element of "just give it rest dude" that might not translate so well outside his expertise in golf. It'll be interesting to see how he's received I think.

LOL, the way the biathlon has evolved makes it more boring than it used to be.  Give 'em some old rifles with old iron sights and let's have at it!

Still remember SNL had the Claudine Longet sponsored Spider Sabich downhill ski shoot - that show was so funny way back in the day.

Edit:  "Invitational Ski Tournament" - would show downhillers getting shot.  Sadly can't find a clip.

It most likely will require him getting Wayne Gretzky to show up at his event.

I wonder how many vials of stanozolol were used?

Maybe Damon Hack can cover the switching of urine samples so no positive tests are found.

It’s gotta be tough to provide color commentary on the biathlon and make it seem really interesting.

Although the endurance necessary for that sport is impressive.  

Curling is another sport that would be tough to talk about.

I have to ask you have you even followed biathlon? It's certainly one of the best, most exciting sports out there, especially women's. There are great skiers who don't shoot as well, great shooters who aren't as fast on the skis, some who are good at both and so forth. The best skiers would challenge for top-10 spots in cross-country skiing events in the Olympics, they are really good. Someone might miss one or even two in the first shooting but they can climb back into the race as chances are, the people ahead will miss some later on in the race. The races are rarely settled before the final shooting.

Did you watch men's relay from Oberhof on Sunday? The fog was magnificent and the shooting was very entertaining to watch.

Curling is also a great sport to watch with all the strategy involved and the skills needed to carry it out.

Hope they send that Cara Robinson and her irritating accent there. Stick her in the landing area for the jumpers..  Too bad Holly Sonders isn't still with golf channel , would be interesting to see what sprayed on outfit she could come up with...

Is there something wrong with an English accent?
