    Same here (just watched it). I was hoping for a full body-length lead like the last race, but it was still exciting.

    And I was the same way regarding my interest, but I've found myself watching tons of events too (mainly basketball, volleyball, swimming, and some gymnastics).

    By 'Olympics' you mean the Summer Olympics. The true Olympics (the winter ones, obviously) will be in Vancouver in 2010.

    No kidding. Watching Canada try to win summer sports is almost painful.

    In other news, has anyone heard that they're removing Baseball and Softball from the Summer games because they have too many events? I heard a rumour, but it can't be true...so many other stupid events that could be removed instead.

    It's no rumor. They did a piece on Costas Now about this. It was voted out of the events by something like 1 vote. Some are saying that it's an anti-American move for political reasons since the US has dominated the event for so long. But, there is a movement to get it re-instated for 2016.

    And yet they are leaving field hockey!? I caught a glimpse of that. Just looks like kids on a playground.
