Default The 2012 Olympics, who's watching?

Are we following the games? I've been watching some of the boxing. I'm very frustrated with the officiating and the judging. I think the AIBA has a real problem on their hands here. What have the rest of you been watching?

After the Opening Ceremony I watched some of the gymnastics stuff over the first couple days but because most of it is on during the day and I'm working I'm not really catching a lot of it live.

I've been watching a lot of the boxing here, but it's not live. It's on time delay, so I have to make sure not to get spoilers. I've been watching some of the swimming on and off too.

It's very easy to get updates thanks to the net. In work there's always someone having a check to see what's the latest and ready to shout it out when something interesting has happened!

I'm looking forward to some of the track and field events. Former New York Giants cornerback Aaron Ross's wife, Sanya Richards-Ross, is competing in the women's 400 Yard dash and the 4X400 women's relay. She's expected to do well, so I want to watch her run.

Well, the last American on our Men's Boxing team got eliminated today in fight that quite frankly I thought he won. As did the commentators.
