LOVE the Olympics!

Yep, I'm an Olympics junkie.  Addict.  I'll watch any event, and even found myself watching water polo on Sunday.  Water.Polo.  The sign of a true addict.

I enjoy the prime time coverage on NBC, and the tape delay doesn't bother me.  Why would it?  London is 6 hours ahead of us, and since I'm at work when the events I want to see are taking place live, I appreciate being able to watch it in the evening.  I've done pretty well keeping myself isolated from most news so I don't hear results before I get to watch them.  This is not a failsafe, unfortunately.  A couple of results have slapped me in the face before I could turn a channel or close an Internet window.

I see complaints, though, of NBC's coverage.  People complaining about airing events taped.  This surprises me.  This is how networks have been doing it for years, since most of the time, the Olympics are not held in the U.S.  So the complaining baffles me.  Hey, there are other NBC stations that are showing events live, plus, you can watch just about everything online.

The Olympics seem to be about the only time that the world can come together and experience the best of what makes us human.  And cheer on our countries.  It's a wonderful time!!!!
