the thing with the olympics is that you turn on the tv to watch a few things you really want to see. but once you've done that, you don't turn off the television and do something else. no, you just keep on watching. and you see all kinds of sports you're usually not interested in. like fencing, badminton or judo.

our very own dj tiesto was playing at the opening ceremony
and "we" have 11 medals so far: 2 gold, 5 silver and 4 bronze
not bad for such a small country, eh..?

all of a sudden there seems to be an error in my bio. or irreparable invalid markup as livejournal calls it. it's always been good, i haven't changed a thing and now there's some bad html? maybe the span tag isn't allowed anymore..

oh,exactly the same thing here with the tv. My brother watches the olympics, and the TV stays on all day long because *there are so many channels*! So we have fencing with comments in german, judo in english, etc :)

I have been watchings bits of the Olympics, and I know what you mean. The BBC here have done an interactive thing on digital so you watch the sport you want on a custom 'channel'. Seems to work ok.

The LJ 'thing' - not sure what has caused that. I am still trying to work out how to customise/use my own designed HTML template for S2 - so perhaps I am not the best person to ask! :-(

That's why I don't own a TV... I miss some things that might be worth seeing, but at least I don't have the problem of trying to turn it off...

you don't own a tv!!!???

i don't usually watch that much tv, compared to other people that is.. and that's why this fascination with all kinds of sports is sort of remarkable.

Too many things in the world to experience... and TV rarely matches any of those things...
