Seems like this is happening a lot these days. Are any of you climbers gonna actually watch the Olympics? I'm not.

Enough to have TV companies paying hundreds of millions for the privilege.

I have been known to swim against the flow and will verify that I enjoy much of the olympics, with my wife usually watching the parts I'm not interested in.
Years of biathlon, X-C ski racing and distance running have left me identifying as best as I can with individuals in those events and hence my interest. I never made a national team but was thinkin' I had a shot for a while in running.Hard to believe now to look at me! I'm not a sailing buff and never fenced but can appreciate a good match. I still like the individual comps the most as many of them do not involve some self-important ref determining the outcome.

Sorry to all those sailing buffs, but if it doesn't get your heart rate up, people in it shouldn't getting medals.

As for the rest, when else can you watch team handball?!

If it's on, I'll watch soccer, sailing, fencing, kayak, volleyball, judo. Badminton is always interesting to watch. Weight lifting, pole vault. During the winter, biathlon, luge, bobsled, half-pipe and curling.

As much as I'd like Tibet to be free, I don't think my not watching is going to make any difference at all.
