Has anyone else totally been into the Olympics?  I've been watching it off and on, the coverage during the day is pretty interesting!  I had no idea they had white water rafting in the Olympics, but pretty cool to watch.  

What's been your favorite event of this Olympics?

didn't know they had white water rafting!  Why don't they show that in the evenings.  I can only watch in the evenings and even then I watch on and off.  I like watching diving the best!

Here's a link to the Olympic page about it, it was pretty cool to see a man made river for it. The race is actually called the canoe slalom.

Living in England, we actually have it on 2 channels continuously and then on and off several other channels. All my favourite programmes have been changed!

Your lucky Leila, in the states, NBC station bought all the rights for us only to watch this one station & we haven't be able to have any access to live internet viewings!!

Since you guys are (average) 6 hours ahead of us, we see & hear about, who won a medal before we even get to see the actual coverage.  And we don't get the chance to see different sports we are interested in, ONLY what NBC airs, at that time!

It's been the worst viewing Olympics, in our history!  I feel like we live in a communist country, right now!  :smileyindifferent:
