Nope. no interest. I appreciate the competition, but it's packaged for consumption by the non-sports-fan. Moms and kids and grandparents are who the Olympics are primarily for.

A lot. And more oddball sports the better. Nothing beats nerds about to throw-down a can of kick-ass in foil fencing while wearing knickers.

I mean, did you see that kid that starred in Whiplash, man, you thought he was intense in the movie?

I haven't watched any of it. I haven't watched the past couple Olympics. Too much else going on this time of the year.

Still watch swimming, but that's mostly because I was a swimmer in high school. Man, that sport has changed A LOT in 25 years!

Nothing. Though I understand the Tonga flag-bearer during the opening ceremony got the ladies hot and bothered on NBC.

I watch the olympics a fair amount. I appreciate elite athletes doing elite things.

The olympics are not pros......
Well, MOST of them.
Most of them do it because they like it.

I saw the clip where Ginny Trasher won gold in the 10m air rifle. And I saw a clip or two of Phelps winning one of his golds. I did find out that when an athlete wins Gold they earn $25,000 of which the IRS takes $8,986.00. I also learned that the Gold medals are only about 6 grams of gold and are not made of pure Gold as they once were.

My son and wife have it on and I've sat and watched some.

It seems like they are showing a lot more competition and less of the "he was born a poor black child" retrospective bios. I see this as a good thing.

We also have a TV at work where I've stopped on the way to fill my water jug to watch ping pong and water polo.

I've successfully avoided watching even one second so far. How long until it's over?

Some. Watched a little diving, swimming, gymnastics, and even water polo. Will catch some basketball. I'm probably watching 15 to 30 minutes every night.
