Anyone interested in any of the games other than mens basketball, like Track & Field, Tennis, Swimming, Gymnastics, Volleyball, Wrestling, etc? Table tennis? haha

I'm a big tennis fan, so I'll be watching that as well as womens basketball.

I'm kind of interested how Dara Torres, that 41 year old swimmer thats trying to come back, performs. Also, the track & field stars. They always seem to amaze me.

Busting out the Kirk Gibson for gymnastics? Man, you must be a fan. Anyway, glad Anastasia won. In sports like gymnastics and figure skating, I've always preferred the more elegant, artistic athletes.

i don't even think i'd consider myself a fan... i was just overcome with nationalism.
