    Will anyone actually watch the olympic games or does the fact that it will be plastered all over the tv annoy you??

    I am not much of a sports fan, it doesn't really annoy me, but I will only be catching on the soccer matches, ignoring all the rest and maybe take a look once or twice on the medal tally.

    This has been discussed all over this forum and the internet.

    I will watch it if there is nothing else on that takes my interest.

    I'll be watching because I enjoy sports. However, I don't like how the politics and the environmental issues are stealing the spotlight from the athletes.

    Opening ceremony was pretty good, if you cut out the boring athletes parade. They really should march the teams in by pairs to cut an hour off it.
    I'll be amazed if the guy who lit the flame didn't get burnt. That looked pretty scary! :eek:

    I'm hoping to catch some soccer but there are a few other sports I wouldn't mind watching.

    Those pictures are hotlink protected, but they look spectacular.

    Does anybody know the URL to where they provide live streaming with coverage from the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games?
