    U.S. Olympic Trials: Anyone Watching?

    I don't even like the summer olympic sports, but it's on primetime and nothing else is on - and I actually like the trials... not sure I'll watch the games... tonight was swimming... (it's going on right now for me, actually). I'm so not a Michael Phelps fan, so I'm cheering for everyone else.

    Well, hi is the most sucessful Olympic champ ever, and such a wonderful swimmer's bod-at least you might like that. I have seen one track event. 200yd dash for ladies? Didn't pay much attention. I am guessing gymnastics team has been chosen or is that coming up? If you know please post in the worthwhile TV thread with time/channel info or maybe we need a dedicated Gymnastics thread since many of us like gymnastics esp Olympic gymnastics. I hope I get to see some of that, if I know ahead of time I can stickie my TV. Heather did a great job of FS events but printer is inkless now. I get maybe 10 pages out of a cartridge at most-even less-I bring them back and tell them and they say we don't fill them, complain to HP. Well someone is china is filling them, and no one cares. I am to tired to fight. Anyway, I need a guide to TV as I don't want to miss the finals of the gymnastics and the world team competitions. Maybe there is a thread with times...this is what I mean by worthwhile TV. I find the diving very good, and will watch some of that, but agreed, Toni, Winter olympics has the more exciting stuff and of course the best is FS. London will be great for me as I was there 3 months when I was like, your age.

    I love London. I would love to be at the Gymnastics events and just soak up the Olympics. It was always a dream and travel was my great desire. I think the Brits will entertain us well.

    NBC is showing the olympic trials events in primetime all week and weekends... running was this weekend, swimming the last couple of nights and I think tomorrow. Diving was on Sunday.

    The Gymnastics folks normally create a thread for it when it comes around. I don't follow it.

    Rats! I've missed most of it. I'll try to catch some other evenings. I can't wait for the Olympics. And it's in London, one of my favorite cities ever.

    There have been repeats on NBCSports Channel.

    All of this coverage gives me hope that US Nationals in 2014 in skating will be prime time

    I think it depends how ratings do for these trials and the London Games.

    I hope diver Thomas Finchum made it to the Olympics. And I want to see gymnast Alicia Sacramone make it.

    I love track & field events so try & catch them on NBC or Universal. I've seen some swimming & diving but don't follow it except during the Olympics. Same with gymnastics.

    I love Equestrian, especially cross country and dressage. Gymnastics, synchronized swimming, men's beach volleyball, diving and gymnastics. And men's beach volleyball is visually appealing

    I think Gymnastic trials are on this weekend, if I heard Matt Lauer correctly?

    I doubt Liukin will make the team. She's not in the best shape - but I could be wrong and she could give an amazing performance.
