Do you read what you watch--Olympic style?

To continue the conversation:

If curling is the scorned romance genre, then how may we compare some of the other sports? Is figure skating the glamour puss, the tell-alls, the confessionals, the featured item at the front of the bookstore and on the endcaps? Something we all watch, pick up and browse through?

Is hockey mystery? Downhill skiing in all its forms the thriller? And while I'm tempted to put snowboarding as the equivalent of Young Adult, I think it more rightly belongs to sci-fi and fantasy. One builds the world, sticks to it, and then the rest of us wonder: How do they do that?
