If your Olympic dreams begin and end in front of the TV, these tips will show how to catch all the action without missing a single gold medal moment.

Step 1: List favorites
Make a list of favorite athletes, events, and teams to see during the Olympic Winter Games to narrow your focus and get your priorities straight.

Step 2: Set up multiple televisions
Set up multiple televisions throughout your house so you don't miss a minute as you clean, work, or go about your day.

You can burn up to 100 calories an hour watching, cheering, and yelling during a sporting event.

Step 3: Go online for more
Go online to get up-to-date scores, news, and to catch live streaming matches when at work or away from the house.

Step 4: Get DVR
Pick up a Digital Video Recorder to catch an event or game as you watch another or while you're sleeping.

Step 5: Root for the underdog
Pick an underdog or another favorite team to show your Olympic spirit, even if your team or country gets booted out of the medal race.

Did You Know?
While Olympic downhill skiers top out at 40 to 50 miles per hour, nothing compares to the men's record of 96.6 mph set by Austrian Klaus Kroell.
