not entirely sure which sport you are speaking of as multiple things come to mind

both my parents were teachers. dad had some of his basketball players (men) go professional but do not know from all his other coaching experiences otherwise that anyone went to olympics

I love the Summer Olympics. My husband is not really into it at all. However, I like to watch it and keep up with the latest news about the athletes and many of the events. My favorite sport to watch is probably the Track & Field which is not on yet as well as the Diving, Swimming, and Gymnastics. There are other sports I enjoy watching but these are my favorites.

I also like to hear the inspiring stories of many of the athletes prior to coming to the Olympics.

have not been able to watch live or replay but have watched clips. getting perturbed with having to watch a commercial with each and every 3 minutes at most clip. i use an ad blocker most always and i do not use flash so was happy to find any small solution (disable ad blocker at site) to be able to watch anything period. ridiculous you must have a paid tv service to watch an antenna channel. but i am in mountains and you need paid tv service for any hope of tv at all
