I've been glued to the Olympics these past few days. From the incredible opening ceremonies, the close calls in gymnastics, to the exciting swimming finals, I'm in for the long haul.
NBC's been doing a great job of presenting the Olympic events without too much jumping around and they're great at giving you the facts you need to understand what's going on. I never thought of swimming as an exciting spectator sport, but watching the US team come from behind to beat the French (who were busy bad mouthing us) was a joy to behold.
Of course, there are a few other shows on TV but what you'll find is mostly reruns.
