with NBC (in the US) running them 24/7 on 5 networks
and almost every event covered live on the internet.... for free

Absolutely no time watching them at all. Sports are a fine subject to photograph. Other than that, I would not watch them for any reason.

I'll watch as much as I can, but I'm not going to let it take time from other things I need to do... although, I do hope they show men's basketball a lot! I need my basketball fix, and it's only August! :tongue:

If it was REAL sport, i might have a look at it from time to time....

.....but the so-called Olympic Games are not anymore -for quite a long time allready- pure sport and only AMATEUR games !

...plus, with all the political fuss -well deserved on not- around it, MY way to desagree with what's going on in the world and the was everybody takes advantage of this event to promote his buziness is to simply ignore them !

...but i reckon it will be difficult: i guess the only way for the next 3 weeks is to rent a few dozen of nice video-movies !

Cheers,
J-P.

I have loved the Olympics since I was a kid, and still remember the grand disappointment of boycotts in the 80's.

We typically are not a TV family, I strictly limit what Emilie watches. However, the Olympics will be an exception for us. Since I still spend a fair amount of time feeding himself, I'll have lots of opportunity. :biggrin: :biggrin:

I live for the winter olympics

I have never been able to get into summer olympics because all they show is swimming, running, and gymnastics

I hate watching those sports, however I have noticed a few "extra" channels appearing in my cable guide and they appear to be olympics related, so I am hoping to catch some of the more interesting sports instead of the three mentioned earlier in my post

the athletes work their lives for this opportunity, so I wont hold anything circumstances against them

also - the olympics are for the best athletes in the world, I think pros fit into this category provided they are not involved with any illegal performance enhancement
