Personally, I loved watching basketball, women's beach volley ball, and the men's marathon (largely for the London scenery!) I caught some of the sychronized swimming which was pretty amazing actually. I always enjoy the track and field events. I couldn't really get into the equestrian stuff though. I'm going to miss having fun stuff on my DVR even though I'm not usually someone who watches sports.

Track and field and swimming are my favorites. But I'm not choosy about Olympics, I like em all.

I don't usually watch much sports either, but always love the Olympics!  Loved the women' soccer, gymnastics, swimming.  Also track, both kinds of volleyball and some of the lesser sports like whitewater kayaking and archery.  And Andy Murray winning the tennis gold!  I also liked seeing famous US athletes excited about being part of the Olympics and supporting their lesser-known teammates.

I didn't get the chance to watch as much as I'd've liked.  I love the opening and closing ceremonies, gymnastics, swimming.  I wish they'd broadcast some fencing in primetime.  I would've liked to have seen some of the more offbeat sports that don't get routine coverage at other times, like archery and whitewater kayaking.

The grumpy guy sitting behind Aly Raisman's parents when she won her gold medal was the most entertaining thing I watched.
