Which Olympics Event Are You Most Looking Forward To?

Swimming, gymnastics, beach volleyball and cycling often have prime time slots on TV, but what sport or event is one you never miss?

Did you know there are 36 different sports in which athletes compete in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London?

And that track and field events are actually in a sports category called "Athletics?"

My favorites are women's gymnastics and swimming, but I also have a soft spot for badminton. The biggest events for each of these sports? DVR set!

What is your must-see event or sport over the next three weeks?

Is it the Men's 200M Individual Medley in swimming, Women's Doubles in Tennis? Or is it every men and women's gymastics event?

Can't remember all the categories? Here is the condensed version:

Archery, athletics, badminton, basketball, volleyball, boxing, canoeing, cycling, diving, equestrian, fencing, football, gymnastics, handball, hockey, judo, modem pentathlon, rowing, sailing, shooting, swimming, table tennis, taekwondo, tennis, trampoline, triathlon, water polo, weightlifting and wrestling.

Jim- You bring up a good point about arguing. Look in the mirror becuase we are both guity. I'm just suprised that someone has such a negative view of the olympics when you shouldn't have such a negative view. But, as I said before, you look at the glass half empty. You look at the olympics and can't see past the few that make money from it. I look at the glass half full. I look at the olympics as a humble sporting event where people do compete for the love of the sport and competition... and to be the best in the world at the sport they love. I know I can't change your negative view of the olympics. Its ok though- Turn Fox news back on and everything will be right in the world.

Adam, You couldnt be more silly if you tried. Just because I dont paint the town beige and love the Olympics you assume I'm some right wing wacko Fox news fan? Seek help. As for our opinions, they differ. You see the joy of sport, youthful exuberance and gleeful competition of 3 unicorn racing for a pot of leprechauns. Thats great. I see NBC, sponsors galore and Countries subsidizing their economies (jobs to put on the thing) by investing in the more popular events and athletes for profitable marketing. Different color glasses. I see my way of thinking as realistic, not negative. You personally attack when someone counters your points. You argue both sides of the issue and affirm things that counter your original statements. You are all over the place like a hot mess just because you like to argue. Then you want to go on and attack someone accusing them of some political affiliation because they arent in agreement with you. Get help.

Guess I struck a chord with Fox News!!! But go ahead Jim- get the last word. This will be my last post on this topic. Just remember- when you say its realistic you are correct. The glass is half empty and that is a realistic statement. I can't change the way you see the world. When I see the olympics as a good thing, that somehow that angers you. I really don't know why you choose look through those glasses. Its ok though- Fox news will always be there to help. http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2012/08/01/ceo-says-nbc-set-to-break-even-on-olympics/

Adam, who are you to be telling anyone how they should feel or not feel about the Olympics or anything else? As for the Olympics being a "humble sporting event," read this and then come back and tell me if you still think it's humble ….. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Olympic_Committee#Revenue
