I love love love the Olympics. There is something fascinating and inspiring about watching commitment and determination on a grand scale. In order to market these games, I'm sure extreme sports will be in the spotlight although I find it a little anti-climactic since the X games were just on. I hope there is better coverage of sports we rarely (if ever) get to watch in the States like curling, biathlon, bobsled/luge/skeleton, and my favorite - skiing. Regardless of the programming, I will be tuned in - how about you?
And it's not too late to grab some books....
