    As someone who doesn't watch much TV, things are about to change drastically for me in about a week (as they do every 4 years). Starting with the Open Ceremonies on Aug. 8th through the Closing Ceremonies on Aug. 24th I will be watching as much of the 2008 Olympics as I possibly can.

    What Olympic sport(s) are you most looking forward to watching?

    For me it's gymnastics, swimming, diving, tennis, track & field, and volleyball.

    Even though I work in the industry, I eagerly await watching the exact sports you mention. I love seeing the volleyball of course because I compete as well.
    The track and field always has drama and I love the grace and beauty of gymnastics.

    Well, I can tell you which sport I'm NOT going to watch.

    If all the swimmers are going to wear those shark suits, forget it! I really don't care who swims the fastest, I just want to see hot swimmers in their tiny little speedos!

    So, I'll be watching men's diving and gymnastics. I'll watch tennis too since I'm a tennis buff.

    I love the Olympics, I usually watch as much as I can. All except basketball. No offense to anyone, the USA should really dominate that and we don't.

    Swimming, soccer, and track.

    Gymnastics and diving can be fun to watch, but the scoring at times ruins it for me. I like sportst that are as close to totally objective as can be.

    SoDakGuy saidTrack and field

    Gymnastics

    Swimming



    That's my order there as well. I can't wait to see the running events since Jorge Torres was someone that I recall racing against one time when I was in high school. Just me being corny I guess.

    LOL almost everybody in this thread listed either gymnastics or swimming, or both.

    I'm definitely watching both of the above, as well as diving, tennis, weightlifting and tracks.

    For me it's gotta be Swimming and Diving (cause i coach it) and both indoor and outdoor volleyball since I played in college and am obsessed with the sport. This is one of the few times those two sports get to finally be important. It's been helpful having someone like Phelps to promote swimming, but I still wish they showed more competitions.
