How Much of the Olympics Do You Watch?

Yesterday I brought you news that NBC plans to provide us with 1,400 hours of coverage (plus 2,200 hours of online broadcasts) for the 2008 Olympics, but how much of it will interest you?

Are you one to obsessively tune in for any and all Olympics events, or do you just watch a few particular things? Or maybe you ignore the whole thing?

I watched the gymnastics competition religiously when I was younger....I was a huge Kim Zmeskal fan, and it was so awful watching her fall off the beam! My sister-in-law is a former gymnast, so now we watch them together when they come around. Some of the other events are interesting, but I love the way that athleticism and artisty are combined in gymnastics.

I absolutely love Summer Olympics!:-) I watch almost every sport but especially swimming, athletics, handball, rowing...come to think of it, I like everything except box and weightlifting. I can't wait for 8.08.2008.! I also think that the Chinese will organize the games perfectly (awww I wish I could be there...)

I find each time they come around I watch more and more of the olympics. I'm always sad when they end :(

Gymnastics and track and field for sure, but I usually get sucked in by the whole thing and end up watching more.

I just watch the events I find interesting. I'm a fan of Michael Phelps and Ian Crocker, so I'll definitely watch the male swimming events(nice eye candy too!lol.) The gymnastics events are always fun too watch; I admire them so much since I can barely walk a straight line w/o falling over. Volleyball is also a fun sport to watch. The last winter games were alot of fun to watch; Shaun White was amazing!

There are few things in life I can say I'm passionate about but one of them is the Olympics. Love them! Ever since I saw Nadia on the uneven parallel bars in the 76 summer games in Montreal I've been a huge fan. It's the spirit of the event that I gravitate to and I once read that Helen Hunt made sure to work into every work contract that she be provided with Olympic tickets. Go girl!

I don't usually watch anything to do with the summer olympics. I'll watch all the Canadian hockey games in the winter though. I love the freestyle skiing, snowboarding, ski jumping, and luge...although I'm not religious with watching them and will only watch if I stumble upon them.

i get sucked into practically everything. when it was in torino, i turned on the tv during the biathlon for a few minutes while i ate lunch. next thing i know, it's two hours later and i'm sitting on the edge of my seat yelling at the screen as some guy comes out of nowhere and pulls an upset. all my roommates kept walking past me asking what the hell i was doing :-P

I LOVE the Summer Olympics! I can pretty much watch all the sports (especially when they give those background special stories on certain olympians), but my "can't misses" are: Opening Ceremony (only when the countries march in) Gymnastics Track and Field Swimming Basketball

I watch as much as I can... because the events I'm interested in aren't the big events... I always make sure to watch Volleyball, Equestrian and Field Hockey. But then if M. Phelps is in the water you can be assured I'm tuning in...

I used to be a gymnastics FREAK so I try and catch that... For Winter Olympics, I never miss hockey!!!

I refuse to watch the coverage here (in Canada)! Once they add more hours of the PARALYMPICS than maybe, i'll watch them... not the designated ONE HOUR they show now!

I NEVER watch the Summer Olympics. Until they add some sports that I and many other people feel deserve to be there, I will continue to not watch. As for the Winter Olympics, I will only watch the snowboarding.

I love the Olympics. I will watch a good chuck of them. Well maybe not really random but enough.

I love the Olympics, and am glad that I will be able to see some of the more obscure sports with more coverage. There are plenty of other stations for people who aren't into them to watch.
