The Olympics

Recommended Posts

Baseball is awesome, there is so much to get your teeth into. Plus I could listen to the commentators all day; they make me feel proud to be an American. That and cricket I really miss after getting rid of the sports channels.

what f***s me off about the Olympics are events like footy, tennis, basketball....

 

those sports that have their own platform - Grand Slams, FIFA/UEFA competitions etc etc.

 

Does Nadal or someone really care about an Olympic medal over the US Open, Suarez over an EC winners medal etc?

Baseball's actually ace, I can see why people don't like it, but similar to cricket - long games, and little appears to happen. When you get under the skin of the game, more than just knowing the rules, that's when you really appreciate it

 

Its nothing like cricket, although you may well be right about the rest, I have zero interest in learning about it.

My experiences have not been particularly good

Boxing is ridiculous. Should be banned.

I missed out in the first lottery

Got these tickets in the second lottery.

Wanted to get some more in the general sale, but that ticketing system was a complete load of b******s and even worse than the lottery system that they had before

I used to do boxing training & really respect it as a discipline, if they had to wear head guards or removed head-shots from it I think it would be much better.

 

But right now it's gladiator stylee - "Maim, hurt KILL..."
