Has anyone been watching the Olympics? Which sports do you like best? I’ve been enjoying watching these Olympic games. I really liked the opening ceremonies, but I’ve always been an easy mark for big pageantry and production numbers. I like watching basketball, swimming and gymnastics, and I’m looking forward to seeing more tennis and soccer. I also hope to get a chance to see some of the less-broadcast sports like equestrian events, badminton, archery and the pentathlon. On the IOC’s website I also learned about Olympic sports of the past, including polo, rugby and tug-of-war, which I would have liked to watch! As any broadcast is also jam-packed with advertising, my favorite Olympic commercial so far, has been this one. And I’d say my favorite Olympic film is the classic Chariots of Fire, which is available at Snell.
