    The Olympics just seem to be boring and out of date to me. I really don't understand the every four year concept anymore. Don't they have world championships annually in every sport?

    I hate how they cram it all into 2 weeks so you end up missing lots of sports. It should be stretched out over a month.

    I'll watch some of that crazy dive / flip action off of the one diving board that looks like it's about 25 stories high.

    I'll be watching it on my Android while sitting in a crack house's bathtub. It'll feel like I'm actually there.

    It seemed like more of a big "event" when both the summer & winter games were in the same year every 4 years. I don't like them split into every two years

    Traditionally, I usually just watched the swimming and the gymnastics.

    Now, I also watch the basketball and soccer, possibly golf.

    I'm more of a Winter Olympics person.

    His brother video taped himself cutting off his own hand with a circular saw in protest and sent the tape to the FBI. If only BLM had this kind of resolve i might be able to take them seriously.

    Just arrived in Rio today. Town at night smells like an open sewer hole. Grimey and dingy even down here at Copacabanna beach. So far only hot chicks I've seen are tourists and athletes wandering down Atlantica Avenue. I'll,post pics if people care.

    Gonna be a train wreck, unfortunately for the athletes.
    I wonder how much the coverage will scrub the broadcast of the miserable conditions.
