I actually get into the Olympics quite a bit, particularly the summer ones. It is sort of like "March Madness" time for college hoops, this once a year time (or in this case, four years) where there is nothing but sports on basically all day. Plus, with the whole "country spirit" and everything involved, it makes a lot of things more interesting.
This year, there is a girl who grew up about five miles from me that is on the women's volleyball team. It is a pretty big deal in the area where I'm from, so that's made that more interesting as well. I'm always into the basketball....and have been watching everything from volleyball/beach volleyball, swimming, gymnastics, diving, tennis, etc. The whole family sort of gets into it. I do sort of get what some people say about "scored" events with judges like gymnastics or diving, I get annoyed with that as well. Particularly when there is this athlete who can do all these amazing things, and then make a small "extra step" or something and the announcer immediately is like "ooooooh" in a tone like they just lost a family member. Otherwise, really enjoy watching the games.
