Poll: What is Your Favorite Olympic Event to Watch?
The Summer Olympics are here. Which event are you most excited to watch the athletes compete?
There is just nothing quite like the Summer Olympics. The intensity of the athletes, the engaging back stories of how hard they worked and trained to reach the biggest stage of their lives, the feeling of pride as the United States racks up medal after medal.
They are a big deal around Warminster Patch HQ, and we can't wait to see tonight's opening ceremonies in London. It's going to be near-impossible to match the theatrics of the Beijing Olympics' celebration, but that won't diminish the excitement for the competitions over the next couple weeks.
Sports like swimming and track and field are not usually appointment television for us. But once every four years, we cannot tear ourselves away from the screen out of fear we will miss something historic, like Michael Phelps' amazing performance in the pool in 2008.
Before the games get underway, we want to hear from our loyal readers which event they are anticipating the most. If our household had to pick just one, it would definitely be the gymnastics portion. How about you? Choose from the list below or sound off on any other options not in the poll.
