    Coverage ought to be great! Mother will be here with me-we can hardly wait! I love the way we get to know athletes from other countries & cheer them on,too. There is always the Aussie swim team,British track stars,etc. We get to see where they live,how they train just as much as our own. World class people! For some reason,even the most tiresome sport becomes riviting to us!

    I love the Olympics!!!! Seriously, i can't wait. I have VHS tapes of Olympics going back to 1984 . There is always some great moments of triumph and tragedy at each Games.

    Speaking of Olympics, i've had my first interview to be a volunteer for the 2010 Winter Olympics! Wahoo!

    Let's support each other's countries and cheer them on. Yay fun

    I've had something of an Olympic burn out in 2004 when we had them here in Athens. China is too far, everyone is doped anyway and I just had to transcribe in Greek letters over 3000 names of athletes who will be competing and I got a killer headache.

    Meh, I say.

    I'm loving the swim teams story. Mark Phelps, dara torres, and of course the magnificent Tyson Gay from track and field. i cant wait to learn more about our own athletes and the of course the other countries athletes.

    Yeah--we can share our athletes with each other, point out who to watch for.

    Needless to say this sport obsessed nation will have wall to wall TV coverage, especially any events where the Aussies stand a chance of a medal. I will probably watch some of it from ESPN or Fox Sports because the local stations will be SO biased. I'm afraid to say that Australia isn't very gracious in defeat, and even worse in victory.

    I think the Chinese have a huge number of potential medal winners they are keeping under the radar at the moment so they can blast away the competition and win the most of the medals. It will be another PR coup for "caring, sharing China".

    Maybe-but I doubt that much! We shall see. This is the fun part-just waiting!

    Hey-I just saw the neatest thing on NBC-the Iranian basketball team asked for & got visas to train here in Salt Lake City! They played an American team and lost,but the crowd & players were all cheering them on! Like the coach said-they are just atheletes and are welcome & supported. This is what the Olympics are about.
