Which Sports Events are you Currently Watching?

Recommended Posts

Looking forward to starting off the day tomorrow with rowing heats and the men's road race. Canada plays in women's basketball and soccer later in the day, and one of our beach volleyball teams goes off in the morning, not to mention the rugby sevens in the afternoon. Excited to catch some of the gymnastics qualifications, team archery and judo in between. Then to finish the night off with the swimming finals and some more beach volleyball.

I will try to watch most of the events (except some of them which aren't interesting to me) but it will be difficult to watch my favorites (athletics and swimming) because it will be very late in the night here... (thank you very much NBC :mad:)

Today I'm jumping a lot between the events such as fencing, water polo, and archery. I'm also going to watch field hockey :NED VS :ARG. I'm a huge sports fan so watching olympics is kinda hard but fun for me

I watched all football matches in short version from first two days, then ofcourse opening, yesterday my main goals were to see all medal events (at least with a short delay), all our athletes and maybe some team event action (especially football, handball, basketball and water polo).

 

I am not so eager to watch swimming finals at 3 am, I rather go to sleep at midnight and see swimming finals and all other late activities in the morning. The only exception will be, if one of our athletes will compete in finals or next week with athletics.

Posting this here, since I don't think any sports thread will be appropiate :p

So lately this poll has been done in The UK - what are your thoughts? :dPersonally I am a bit surprised 40% of Brits think Football is boring :yikes:

Also, currently our national sports channel is doing a similar poll, only with 20 sports, including handball, volley and Ice Hockey which are not on this list. I will inform you about the results after they will be published in Monday or Tuesday :d

Personally I would put tennis but especially swimming much higher on the boring list, cricket even higher, and darts way lower (as in more exciting) :p  And football much much higher.

 

Then again, it all depends on the matches and competitions, there's plenty of athletics races which suuuucked, but also plenty of American football matches which were utterly amazing (I saw 3 matches in the past three weeks and both were ridiculously exciting).

Sorry if I misunderstood - you think football is boring?

Usually when I watch, not much happens, indeed. I usually have the 'luck' to end up watching a match with maybe 5-10 somewhat serious goal attempts and 1 or 2 goals and that's it :p 

 

Of course there's always exceptions, like in any sport.
