I for one love the Olympics. I still can't belive that instead of having to get up in the middle of the night to tune in to fencing from Seoul or badminton from Sydney that its happening at the end of my road. Literally at the end of my road; and there is a real sense of excitement building in the area already - especially amongst those who think that in some unspecified way they are going to be able to "cash in". I just wish I could have got my hands on more tickets. Test events for cycling, hockey and water polo, plus the real thing for boxing, football and handball are my paltry haul so far. Looking forward to a thriving black market nearer the time.
My dad was at the opening ceremony in 1948 (he just queued up at the turnstiles) and is a bit miffed that he cannot do the same again this year.
Turning to the original question, I think the 'Other Sports' section has things covered already. Enthusiasts can enthuse in that area, whilst cynics can look away and grumble in private.
