Yes to most of the above! The love the olympics, but I don't catch the whole thing. My favorite sports in the Summer Olympics to watch are swimming, running, diving and gymnastics. I think my favorite event is the 50 free in swimming or the bars in gymnastics.
Just a side note: I cringe every time I watch the balance beam, they come so close to hitting their heads so many times. Does anyone remember that girl about 8 years ago that hit her face? That was so narly.

Yes, that was an awful fall! Beam was always my most feared event. I had a few falls, but nothing nearly as bad as Amy's. But I was amazed that it didn't scare her at all and she got right back up there for the Olympics.

Are you looking forward to the Olympics? Oh yeah! It was always a big deal in our family growing up.

Do you watch the Opening & Closing Ceremonies? I love the opening, but I'm not sure about the closing ceremonies this year- I'm so emotional, I bet I'll get all teary eyed. Lol

Do you watch all the sporting events? Yes, I really like them all.

Which is your favorite? Gymnastics, and Swimming, I think.

I honestly don't really get the joy of watching sports, so I don't usually watch.

I do run so sometimes I do watch that, but rarely. Usain Bolt is amazing and watching him is like lightening. I did run while watching the Olympics in Greece. Yeah, I'm weird. I ran the entire tme they did and only covered 1/2 the distance. Talk about slow!! But it is inspiring to me, well, was at the time.

Do you watch the Opening & Closing Ceremonies? Most likely. I intentionally boycotted the opening ceremony from China & I'm so bummed because I heard how amazing it was. (I used to walk by these Tibetan protesters in front of the Chinese embassy everyday on my commute - they were there for months prior to the Olympics, rain or shine. I figured I was still going to watch the events but I could skip the Opening. Sigh.)

Do you watch all the sporting events? A lot of them. I love swimming, diving, running, gymnastics...I'm so excited I'm going to be home this time

Which is your favorite? Probably women's gymnastics - although I like the men too.
