Real anxious for wrestling and weightlifting to get underway.

Need to check the basketball rosters.

YEAH!

Way too excited about this, think I'm going to be spending most of the next two weeks with my TV on, showing some kind of sport! Looking forward to seeing what we've come up with for the opening ceremony tonight.

Team GB! Team GB!

Similar idea here, going to try and work things around as much as possible; 52 channels (??) and at decent hours, makes a change as well :)

Will be deciding what to watch, on a daily basis.

Yeah buddy, plus there is a young lady from southeast Texas (Newton) I believe that's the town, but she will be competing as a gymnast.but will confirm later. So you can only imagine how things are down here!

Hell yeah!

I've got all of today, Saturday, and Sunday to watch the games - with a brief break Saturday to deadlift and perform other shenanigans.

They should be putting on re-runs at night, so I can just sit on the couch and eat. :cool:

I'll be watching Olympic weightlifters, the wrestlers, and pole-vaulting.

BendtheBar 07-27-2012 09:18 AM

I'll be living on my TV too. I love watching the obscure sports, and hearing the stories of the athletes. That's my favorite part.

TODAY in London - 2012 Olympics News, Athletes & Countdown | TODAY.com Blogs


Olympic swimmer Cullen Jones describes the pool as feeling like “home,” but it wasn’t always that way. After nearly drowning as a 5-year-old child, Jones learned to swim and has made it his mission to reduce the startling number of drowning deaths among African-American children each year.

“I remember what it feels like to be underwater and I remember what it feels like to be helpless,” said Jones of the time he nearly drowned at a water park. "I was underwater, I couldn’t breathe…and then I completely passed out.”

Now 28 years old, the freestyle sprinter is gearing up for the London Olympics after winning a gold medal four years ago in Beijing. While Jones’ swimming talent is remarkable, his near drowning experience is not. A study by the University of Memphis and the USA Swimming organization showed that around 70 percent of African-American children don't know how to swim, compared to about 40 percent of white children. African-American children between the ages of five and 14 are three times more likely than other children to drown, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

When the African-American Jones first learned these numbers a few years ago, he was shocked.

Anyone watching the opening ceremony tonight/today? It's nice to have 3 options, of no commentary, audio, and commentary, for a change :)
