Anyone else excited to watch the summer Olympics?  If so, what are your favorite events to watch?

I enjoy watching the opening ceremonies, swimming, diving, and gymnastics. I look forward to watching Michael Phelps in his final Olympic games to see if he wins any more medals (he's only 3 medals away from being the most decorated Olympian in history)!

LOL! I just posted this on another board. :smileyvery-happy:
We wil watch occasionally. I really enjoy the Winter Olympics more, but Kolby is actually showing an interest.
I love the gymnastics.

My favorite part is the opening ceremonies, so I will definitely watch that!  I will probably watch some random events here and there also.  I would like Alex to see the fencing.

YES! I can't wait! Gymnastics and swimming are probably my favorites but I usually get sucked in to watching all kinds of other events, especially when they start showing some of the athlete's personal stories. 

Kinda bummed that I'll miss a few days of it while I'm out of town with DH celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary (sshhh don't tell him I said that, LOL). Maybe I can turn it on for a little awhile at night  when we get back to our hotel room- SO romantic, eh? :smileywink:

Even though I am trying to swear off teh Olympics, I probably won't be able to resist. Opening and closing ceremonies will likely be on my DVR for a few weeks. Otherwise --- it'll be hit and miss.

Great minds, Dana! :smileywink:

I really like the Winter games a bit more too... but gymnastics is a big draw for me during the summer games.

That would be so neat for Alex to see the fencing! I hope he's able to watch.

The ceremonies are so neat to watch! Why are you trying to swear off the Olympics this year, Carol?

Primarily because I find myself glued to the telly (DH's massive 70" HD screen took over during the Athens Olympics...) to the exclusion of all else, getting all adrenalined up rooting for the "home team" and then there is a post-Olympics "let down" where it feels like there is a hole in my life! I decided that this was ridiculous and I'm going to try to ration myself! LOL
