Considering the China is banning atheletes who have political ties to helping Darfur, and they complained when out bicyclists showed up wearing pollution filter masks... no, I can't see watching this travesty of human rights. This is going to be the worst Olympiad since 1938....

My view is dispite the fact that China is being dumb is no reason to not support our Athletes while they are over there. Boycot China in other ways.

We're having a group over to watch the opening ceremonies (we have the biggest TV in our group of friends and we're the only ones with High Def). We have 4 dedicated HD channels so there should be no shortage of HD to watch. The last Olympics were not HD friendly at all.
