I had Olympic fever. I watched as much as I could including Michael Phelps, beach volleyball, and gymnastics. I wanted to see kayaking but I guess that sport does not pay NBC's bills. I am surprised by how much I was into the games. I hate watching sports on tv. Hate it I tell you.
My British brother-in-law commented to me that the American coverage of the sport is only of the American athletes. I have to agree. While I was rooting for the U.S., I think it would have been great to see more all around coverage.
