So what events do you like to watch? I'm hoping to catch atleast the

Womens Gymnastics
Womens Volleyball
Womens/Mens Swimming
Mens Kayaking
Mens 100m, 200m, 400m
Mens High Jump, Long Jump, Pole Vault
Mens Baseball
Mens Weightlifting

BTW, what did you think of the opening ceremony? I would rate it as a c+ so far (currently they are introducing the countries). I was disappointed with it. I would actually rate it a lot lower but I understand how much work actually goes into this.

I enjoy volleyball of all types, gymnastics, swimming, diving, and the shorter track and field stuff.

And fast forwarding through Bob Costas.

We shut down our Sat. service for the summer before I realized I'd be missing the Olympics. Dumb. There is a good bit of live content on the Internet of course, but the time shift makes it tough.

I have been watching a pretty fair amount with my wife and kids. Usually I am the only one in the house watching sports, so it is nice to have company. You are going to be upset to hear that men's baseball and women's softball is not included in the Olympics this time around. We have particularly enjoyed the swimming and diving.

We are recording and then watching swimming, gymnastics, track, some volleyball.

Disappointed that the Men's 4x100 freestyle relay lost to the French, but continue to be amazed by almost everything I see.

Being a former coxswain, rowing is my favorite sport to watch. It's easily the most difficult sport in the Olympics (particularly the men's 8). It's too bad more people don't appreciate a true beast of a sport.

With exception to women's basketball, I enjoy watch everything else.

You really think that? Try taking a pommel horse handle to the nads.

I think ANYTHING at that level of competition is at the same level of difficulty. Being the best at anything in the world isn't going to be cake, is it?
