I don’t know why but put the Olympics on TV and I will watch it non-stop. I do not care if it is fencing or water polo, I am enthralled. And if the USA is competing than I am even more interested. Part of it is the grandiose stage, part of it, is the history, and part of it is nationalistic patriotism that the Olympics fosters in me. I even check frequently throughout the day to see the medal count (right now the USA is second to China 14 to 12).
So how about you, do you like the Olympics? If so, what is your favorite event to watch? So far mine has been Volleyball. It is non-stop action, incredible athleticism and the speed at which they spike the ball is amazing. It is truly great TV.
