Watched the Rio Olympics Opening (many hours). I thought it was a fabulous, artistic, unique and entertaining presentation. Wish all competitors the best (especially the Aussies).
I'm with you, I'm definitely no athlete. But I do enjoy watching the gymnastics and Michael Phelps' swimming events. A local girl is on the swim team, and I will hear enough on the local news to not have to watch her events. I have to get up early every morning, so staying up until midnight to watch TV won't work. Watched some of the opening ceremonies last night and recorded the rest. The problem with recording is finding the time later to watch!alan55 said:Being sport it's not really something I follow. I don't mind watching the girls doing the gymnastics etc. but the rest is a little boring.
Our TV coverage is very selective and usually only shows the very top competitors in any given sport, and not all sports are shown. There is probably a web site with more complete coverage, but unfortunately, I don't have time to watch every minute of Olympic coverage. If I could just function without any sleep!

I especially would like their gymnast to win gold! She is so good and deserves to win this year! Maybe I'm just prejudice because I'm Jewish, but watch her, she really is good!
An embarrassment to Brazil??? Why would Brazilians be embarrassed about their history and/or culture? Found out things I never knew before.krashdragon said:The comments I read from the guys said the opening ceremonies were an embarrassment to Brazil. ...
Didnt see them, too tired to hook up the tv in my truck.
You can check you cable schedule to see the schedule. Or go to the Olympics website, and see it there.RosieC said:I always get totally confused .... the time difference, when to watch something, which channel. I think I end up seeing good stuff by accident. But truly, it is all good stuff. I admire the athletes and their families and coaches.
