    I don’t watch the Olympics, I really do not have the time for that, but I used to be a huge tennis fan, while Pete Sampras was playing 🙂

    Yes, I don’t watch that much but always enjoy the rowing and the cycling.

    I don’t have time to watch much either, but I most enjoy watching the cycling, archery and some track events.

    I’m an Olympian couch potato, almost a national pass-time since I’m an Aussie. I’m not sure if there is anything I won’t watch, I might not watch the synchronised swimming, that’s always struck me as slightly ridiculous. Currently watching as I’m keying this entry, the swimming heats, 250 cycling road-race, rowing heats and I think that is all…just for the moment. Can’t wait for the woman’s triathlon, a friend has coached 5 triathletes who qualified for the Olympic tri (from various countries) who all have a chance for a podium finish. I’ll also, try to catch as much TV footage of the para-Olympics as time will allow.

    I do watch the Olympics. I am more of a fan of the winter olympics, but I do watch the gymnastics, the horsey stuff, and the track and field. The gymnast Gabby on the Fab Five US team is from my town and I think it is a town decree to watch 🙂

    I love to watch swimming, diving, gymnastics, volley ball, and Jayme’s horsey stuff. (Go, Gabby, Go!)
    Again, please don’t enter me for *Prince*, Jill.

    No TV, but I will hear about it from my 93 year old mother who watches everything, and maybe I will catch a few videos on the internet – gymnastics, horses, marathon.

    Yes! I love swimming, diving, tennis, and soccer best, but I also enjoy watching the less common sports at the Ompics!

    OMG, SO Love the Olympics. Not sure how I will finish my July reading, since we now have coverage of so much. We watched Soccer yesterday, the opening ceremonies start to end, the bike race today (my 4 year old is hooked) archery, fencing, volleyball, a little tennis, swimming (yikes, Michael, that was a little close this morning!). SIGH.

    The swimming of course! The Aussies usually do better in swimming than anything else, so I watch and hope! But the gymnastics and diving are wonderful to watch. too, so I will be watching those events when I can.
