Well got free tickets for some of the community stuff I do in my area. Unfortunately I had to choose between one normal Olympics ticket or two Paralympic tickets so I choose to go to the Paralympics just to have some company.
I also saw the Olympic Torch when it was going down the my road. Their must be about 200-300 people just where I standing, I've never seen so many people by my house.
This seriously awesome, can't wait to be paying for this for the rest of my life.

Not to call you out on this, but there is nothing bad about the Paralympics to you, right?
Anyway, on topic: Eh, I don't care too much. Never was into sport, although it is interesting that the Olympics are happening so close to our small and dinky island. Heck, judging from RTE ads, people here are pretty excitied; we have a lot of people going in, so people are hopeful that we might get some medals.
Although I agree with Suns, don't you think all of this money should be poured into something good, like say, fair trade?
I never watch the Olympics =/ Everyone is like "OMG the Olympics are on!!", and I just go drink a little, and play zombies. I mean I use to watch the Olympics when I was younger, but now... I dunno, just not very interesting.
I live in England, and I would have totally forgotten about the Olympics if people hadn't taken to commentating through the whole opening ceremony on Facebook. Why must my friends lack wit? Why?! Anyway, you can hardly blame me because I live up North and it has been what feels like years since the torch was trotted through.
Our (Israel) team is interesting... The less favorite sportsman succeed (Alex Shatilov in gym, at least in the 1st competition), but the favorite ones lost (Shahar Peer in Tennis, she had a good chance to win)... I'm following after every competition in these Olympics! So, Go Israel!
