I like acting like I actually understand and care about these sports every 4 years.

Did track in my teens so always excited to watch that - will be alot of it on tv this summer. First the European championships then the Olympics...and all the regular Diamond leagues in between.

I used to like watching the Olympics, but US television coverage is so awful and so jingoistic that I can't stand it any more. I hear there is much better coverage in Germany.

I haven't really followed the Olympics for quite some time, except for the 2004 Summer Olympics when my neighbors grandson won the Gold Medal for the 4X400 Relay. It was REALLY exciting to see someone that I used to see walking to school every day to be receiving the Gold Medal in Athens!

Now the thrill is kinda so-so :)

I'm looking forward to it, probably more than normal as its in the UK. The olympic torch is passing down my street later in the month so that should be fun and not something I'm likely to see again.

My brother just got assigned to work near London for the summer and thought that he'd check out the Olympics....tickets for opening ceremony....at least what was left...starting at $800.00! He decided to watch it on the Tele in his flat.

For each hour, 5 minutes of athletics, 30 minutes of human interest background stories with soft piano music, and 25 minutes of commercials and product placement. F*ck that.
