How much of the Olympic TV coverage did you watch?
HEY! I missed that!Dee*Jay|1471827468|4068459 said:None... but I did participate in a thread by momhappy about the male swimmers appearing naked due to where they place the score banners... does that count?
Yes it is. It was on NBC along with all of their networks. But if you don't have cable or an antenna, you wouldn't be able to watch it.kenny said:So, it's no longer contracted with and broadcasted by one of the big networks, ABC, CBS or NBC? I'm clueless.
Interesting.jordyonbass|1471947673|4068913 said:None. I used to know an Olympic dual gold medallist when I was a teen and he kinda destroyed the way I pictured Olympic athletes. Amazingly talented in his sport but needs some coaching and development as a human being
I don't want to elaborate too much on how I knew him in case I give his identity away but I didn't know him via the sport he competed in, we had a common interest which is how we got to know each other (not hard to guess what it probably is lol).kenny|1471988805|4069185 said:Interesting.jordyonbass|1471947673|4068913 said:None.

I've noticed those who play, or like to watch, sports are usually not likely to be people with whom I care to hang out.
I've got nothing against sports itself.
Barring a couple exceptions, sports just seems to attract people I'm not attracted to.
Personally I am very ANTI-competitive.
I find getting ahead by beating others revolting.
Sure, everyone is not the same, some are better at things, but I'm very into equality.
IOW, you being better at X means nothing, zip, nada, except that you're good at X.
The hero worship and zillion-dollar product endorsements showered onto sports legends is also revolting.
As a kid I remember my brother practically jerking off staring at a box of Wheaties cereal with a picture of some sports hero of that moment.
Wheaties is the 'Breakfast of Champions" of course.
