    The Olympic Games

    I'll be watching Equestrian, gymnastics, swimming, diving and men's beach volleyball.

    I usually watch everything but I am just that kind of person. However, I will be on vacation for part of the Olympics so I might miss some. I like to watch gymnastics, swimming, diving and track and field. I am sorry to hear that Paul Hamm had to withdraw from men's gymnastics.

    I could cry about Hamm having to withdraw. He was one I couldn't wait to watch.

    I'll watch track & field & the rowing events. Some swimming, diving & gymnastics but they get very repetitious. Some boxing.

    I try to watch as much of it as possible. Favorite events - gymnastics, swimming, diving, cycling, boat racing, equestrian, track & field, the marathons.

    Gymnastics definitely. If nothing else is on, I don't mind watching the swimming and diving. Track is ok, but I can't watch the marathon or the long single runs - relays are always fun to watch.

    Synchronized swimming. How could I forget to add that one? And it's a very hard sport to learn.

    Equestrian, Equestrian, and Equstrian (there are 3 disciplines you know)
    so its Oxygen (the cable network) and the Internet for me. The most they ever show in prime time is the cross country of the eventing (especially when there's a spectacular fall) and the show jumping.

    I am counting the days for the Olympics to start! I cannot wait! I will watch any and all the events...favorites are gymnastics, swimming, diving, rythymic gymnastics, volleyball...

    I will have to set my alarm clock to music and not NPR so I won't be spoiled and avoid all olympic discussions at work! Yikes! It will not be easy!

    OMG! Paul Hamm withdrew? I didn't know because I was on vacation. Oh too sad, I was so looking forward to seeing him compete!

    I will watch as much as I can, but swimming and gymnastics will be at the top of my list.

    It shows that primetime coverage will start on Friday at 7 pm PST. A preview and then the opening ceromonies. There is also a programming package/guide called NBC Universal that's included with my satellite/cable provider.

    If anyone is attending the Games, I'd love to see a diary.
