    Title says it all.

    I'm following (or will be following)

    Of course boxing and Judo both men and women.

    At least the finals of fencing both men and women.

    Men's Basketball

    Men and women's Rugby.

    Men and women's table tennis.

    All of swimming.

    Irish boxing obviously, rugby sevens, maybe a bit of basketball and anything else that catches my eye like the 100m sprint.

    No sports, but I’m carefully following how much of a gong show the Olympics will be. So far them losing the keys to the stadium and having to get in with bolt cutters takes the cake.

    Though, it’s a bit of a contest with them having to shoot their Olympic mascot:

    Let’s not forget government employees intercepting and extinguishing the torch in protest:

    http://news.nationalpost.com/sports/rio-2016/chaos-erupts-as-protesters-in-brazil-halt-olympic-torch-relay-and-extinguish-its-flame

    You know, come to think about it, I think I’ll watch the swimming. My brother was an Olympic level swimmer, and I developed a bit of a taste for it after getting to know some of the athletes.

    I kinda flip around quite a bit. Love track the most though

    Funny how when we watch the Olympics, we all of sudden become experts at sports that we never usually watch. I was just watching synchronized women's diving, and after a few rounds, find myself commenting on their dives, synchronization, etc. It's kinda funny

    Is there a place where they show which stations are playing which sports? I like basketball, gymnastics, and track & field...sometimes swimming, but all I get are the weird sports no one cares about.

    Well one that I caught that probably others didn't since most don't watch table tennis: During USA vs Spain they had two commentators. But only one had his mic on so the whole time he kept asking his broadcast commentator questions followed by long pauses during which he listened to the response we couldn't hear.

    It's a sad thing though. The idea is that the Olympics will bring money through tourism. But to accommodate that, first a nation needs to invest millions, probably billions, making preparations. If your nation is already in a depressed economy, that will financially crush you to the point that the incoming tourism probably won't resolve it. I can understand the hurt, anger and frustration of many Brazilians.
