the Olympics are the only time every 4 years I even consider watching sports like figure skating, curling, skiing, etc - be it men or womens.
how often is there ever a time that the public even knows when they should be collectively supporting or rooting for a womens hockey team, bobsled racer, cross country skiier, or some other sport (men or womens) that doesn't have enough exposure for us to care?

We watch curling all the time - both men's & women's teams.
I was in Montreal a few weeks ago for the Scottie's tournament of hearts (national women's curling event). It's not as widely supported in Ontario / Quebec or further East but curling is huge in the prairie provinces.

If we had a women's wnba team I'd totally watch

Figure Skating: Scott & Tess got ripped off - they deserved the gold for their perfect skate! Canada, always the bridesmaid.

Figure Skating is always publicized and televised.

the womens curling final was exciting. so much emotion there. Especially when sweden screwed up that final rock and handed it to Canada. The mens final was just a bloodbath and just really not that great.

Womens figure skating reminds me of Jerry Springer. Jerry! Jerry!

Tonya Harding, crooked judges, and fixed results.
