And the agony of da feet...  
Every time, before the Olympics start, I don't have much interest. I don't intend to watch or look up athletes or any of that-- and yet, once they're on -- IT SUCKS ME IN. Do I care about fencing in non-Olympic years? HELL NO. And yet, it's so interesting. And there's Trampoline to come! TRAMPOLINE! Absurd. And Group Rhythmic Gymnastics, which might as well be called Cirque de Soleil Training Camp. And yet I watched a whole routine FROM ATHENS online just so I could find out what it is. It's like Olympic crack!fic! I can't wait!

Best parts are the funny ones, though. Like the story of the Spanish cyclist who went home the same night as her drug test. She didn't even wait for the results! *snicker* That's the great thing about the Olympics - it's both high drama AND comedy gold.

This despite the fact that NBC sucks donkey balls. Way to spend all that money and STILL show us tape (tape marked as LIVE no less)! And then add insult to injury by playing stupid games as if we don't know the results already. bastards. Which is why I'm glad there are now alternates.

I watched part of the diving yesterday on line. Hiding behind a piece of paper for some of it. I hate diving, refuse to watch it since I saw Greg Luganis (?spelling) dive that time. He hit the diving board on the way down and dropped like a stone. Yet cos it was the olmypics I watched it.

I haven't even had time to flip on the TV since they started, but trampoline was always one of my favorite things to watch when I was a kid. I wanted to jump as high as they did!
