Well, is everyone enjoying the Olympics? We thought it wasn't gonna be first rate because the news people said that it was being done on the cheap. We were prepared to see one that wasn't up to snuff, but we've watched a lot and really enjoyed it. The facilities seemed to be done well, though the water that they showed on TV was gross and the housing had big problems. But the "news" is pretty much worthless. I guess we mostly watch it outta habit.

Anyway, we've really been enjoying it. It sure beats the junk and reruns that are usually on.

Apparently, Brazil is a nice place to do sports, but one must watch his/her wallet and stay away from open water. :old:

I've recorded just about all the broadcasts on my DVR. I can honestly say I've watched every minute that's been on the air on all the stations, though mostly at 4x fast forward just to get past all the fluff and glut of commercials. They certainly make it look good, the facilities seem nicely done. I haven't watched the news since the political party conventions, way too much BS for me to stand.

Yeah, I couldn't agree more about all of it. :old:

I must confess that I've not watched one single minute of it.

I've played more disc golf in the last month than I have in the entire rest of my life combined, though. I'm like the Hussein Bolt of disc golf!

Well, I finally got bored with the Olympics--too many heats, too many sports that I don't care about--volleyball, badminton, field hockey, basketball, water polo, diving and on and on. We haven't been watching as much lately, and we're beginning to miss our regular programs.

I guess it just goes on too long without continuous interest. :old:
