Do you watch the Olympic games? I do as much as possible and look forward to both the summer and winter games. Tokyo has been fascinating, from the sombre opening to the empty seats. Unbelievable human emotion and must watch TV imo.

One of my favourite matches live has been the Women's 3 on 3 basketball US vs. ROC for Gold.

Shame I do not get to watch any Olympic USA coverage without a pkg on cable now. First time ever and I am old enough to remember Nadia Commeneci. My only options are Canadian Broadcasting without paying to stream NBC coverage.

Walking to the beer store then settle in and watch Olympics. Perdita Felician has been amazing for CBC coverage . What a wonderful Canadian.
Makes me proud. Andre De Grasse Best of Luck!

Quoted from kevmad:

I like watching the less popular events: table tennis, badminton, javelin, high jump, shot-put, pole vaulting, curling, etc. Watching table tennis now.
The 100 meter race is a display of raw power.

I would watch women's 3 on 3 basketball all day long. Prob my fav new Olympic sport. What happened to rhythmic gymnastics with the hoops and ribbons? I was Looking forward to watching this year.
