    BMX racing makes its Olympic debut, which I am really excited about (my 12 year old has been racing for about three years)! As for the other sports, I might check in here and there, but I don't really follow any of the other sports closely.

    Cool! I have been watching on and off all day. The gymnastics are unreal. I was lucky to live In LA for 1994 summer games, what a great time it was in the city. I also got to meet Alan Alda while at UCLA. Although when in LA stars are dime a dozen.

    I love the Olympics, got viigo notifying me when Michael Phelps whips up on a trash talkin french guy.
    1st time this high tech for sure, plus it's very nice to get away from the forced down your throat NBC broadcast and get BBC or globe and mail. Geez, I just realized i'm a nerd...

    My biggest problem is finding time to sleep, lol. I'm watching the 2 man lightweight sculls - it looks like a tough event, last time I watched scull racing was 4 years ago.

    Felt bad for China basketball, Yao Ming's their only player. Oh, JK about feeling bad,

    I used to love diving, my Aunt Michelle Mitchell was a Silver Metalist in 84 and 88. But This time around I just can't care, I mean I haven't even watched the opening ceremony this time around.

    Omg the 4x100 was so insane!!!!! With out those magnetic touch pads I don't think anyone woulda been able to tell who won because it was just so close!!!! Amazing come back by the americans!!!

    I really love swimming and BEACH VOLLEYBALL! May and Walsh are like my heroes!!! And I completely agree with everyone about how amazing the opening ceremonies were!!! I was really touched by the ppl of north and south Koreo wanting to walk united......to bad there governments didn't let it happen.

    I really want to see diving but keep missing it! I'm so glad all you guys are a psyched about the olympics as I am!!!! I was starting to think CB users didn't care!

    I am stoked for these games. Looks like Communist China is getting a home field boost, but I think the best is yet to come. I agree that 4X100 win against the French was special - especially when it was the old guy coming through.

    I think diving is awsome to watch, and speaking as someone who's afraid of hights, frightening, haha. Don't get mad anyone, but I'm not really getting syncronized diving - even though we're doing well. It looks a little like a made up sport to me, but what do I know.

    Also seems like bad luck for the women gymnists. Two injuries have got to hurt our chances. Well, everyone in my family knowa where to find me for the next week and a half. Oh, and how about watching in 1080i?!!
