    Are you going to be watching?

    If so, what events?

    Anyone have any "hometown" atheletes in the run for the medals?




    *I always like watching the swimming, basketball and track and field events.

    I'll be watching some of it. (insert Homeresq USA! USA!) :tongue:

    I like soccer in small doses. (Olympics/World Cup)

    I like track stuff and swimming stuff.

    I can't stand diving and gymnastics. Both are subjective and gymnastics is way to hard (and deforming) of a physical toll on young bodies.

    Oh man, I can't watch diving. I'm always afraid someone's going to hit their head on the board, ala Greg Louganis. :eek:


    Soccer, eh...never got into the sport much, except when my daughter played on a team.

    Depends---if thy hop around to 40 different events and cram in 7 zillion commercials an hour, forget it. Besides--cheering for your own country is sorta all shot to hell.
