    To be perfectly honest I care far more about sports like rowing, swimming, volleyball or most track events than basketball, golf, soccer or tennis because the former are truly amateurs which was the real point of the Olympics rather than rich professionals.
    Exactly I think those sports would qualify as "I don't know who anyone is" for me. Rowing? Don't know one name in any of those sports but I'll cheer because of their effort to get there for us getting no pay!

    • I can't even remember the name of that stud swimmer we had who got all those gold medals. Time is fleeting.

      • Phelps.
        Wish I was in the Olympics, but this one would suck.
        Franz Klammer, Nadia Comenichi, US Ice Hockey, remember Speed Skating?
        Even Bruce Jenner was good.
        I hope some athletes that trained their whole lives are rewarded.

          I think you're referring to Michael Phelps but Mark Spitz was almost as good in the 1972 games.

          • I can remember Spitz!

            Both are correct saying Phelps. Stud.

            Nadia Comenichi story is a great reason why I can watch. Remember that like it was yesterday. STUCK IT!!!

                  • What drug, virus testing are they not doing? I'd say this has gotten out of control but we are far beyond that. It was better when everybody was taking steroids with no testing.

                    • Like literally who give a shit if some athlete is on cocaine. Do we really need to know that? Is that going to debase the sacred games?

                          Is she competing as a woman or a man?

                                P.C Babies are happy with Pappy's questioning.
