I'll probably have it on, but only because the missus loves the olympics.
Me personally, I think the whole thing is waste of time and money.
I won't even mention the fact that my digs have increased from £79 a night to £220.
Total rip off, the whole thing, imo.
Definitely not, I'll rent a film or something instead.
It's not like I'm vehemently avoiding it, just not even remotely interested.
The wife and eldest daughter may watch it though, they're into watching 'event TV' like this or 'children in need' etc
We happen to be having visitors for the weekend so we're having a few beers and it'll be on in the background. I know they can drag on a bit, but I'll watch the main bit just to see what Danny Boyle came up with. The OH has decorated the conservatory with bunting just to add to the atmosphere.
Personally I feel it makes a change to have something other than a football event taking over the TV (and yes I know there is a football section for the Olympics, but that's one bit I won't bother watching). If it wasn't on then I'd be out enjoying the weather rather than sat inside watching some films anyway.
Not at all interested in the pomp & the hype surrounding the whole event, so the opening ceremony will be a no for me, just as it has been for other Olympics
I'll watch a few of the events if they interest me, and I happen to be in front of the TV, and I've managed to wrestle the remote off the kids (bearing in mind they're off school), but otherwise... meh!
I am 60yrs old and never in my lifetime have I had or will I have the opportunity again to watch an Olympics being held from my own country.
Will I be watching absolutely!!!
There is a lot of hype surrounding the event and I can't say I am happy with the cost but lets get behind our athletes and as long as Beckham don't get to light the flame starting the event I shall be happy.
