    Well with the opening ceremonies and all I figured the olympics is sort of a big deal... eh. Heh. Just kidding. So thought I would open up a thread for general discussion on the olympics.

    So what's your favorite summer olympic sport?

    Mine is Water Polo... when else do you get to see water polo???

    I'm really looking forward to soccer and swimming the most, and maybe gymnastics and beach volleyball.

    The U.S. Men's soccer team can be a joke at times, but I look forward to how the U.S. Women's team will do.

    I think the swimming events are the most exciting to watch followed closely by all the running events.

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    the men's team has been qualifying for the past 4 or 5 world cups. Thats pretty good. The mens under 18s played some great ball in the under 18 wc in canada. And the mens national team tied argentina (the number one ranked team in the world at the time) a few months ago.

    I'd say they're doing pretty good...

    Track and Field and Basketball. However, I kind of like to check out all the different sports. It's kind of cool to see how intense everyone is about their particular sport. Even the ping pong / table tennis player.
