    With the 2012 Olympics approaching and the fact that I’ve been playing this pretty cool Olympics games, I was just wondering what everyone’s favorite Olympic game would be. As far as the game is concerned, there is an archery game that you can play and I really enjoy that. However, when it comes to watching the Olympics, I would probably have to go with basketball as being my favorite sport.

    So, what about you? What is your favorite Olympic event?

    Here’s the link to the game:

    I find all swimming and gymnastics fun to watch. And pole vaulting.

    I guess the only one worth watching to me is the Team USA Basketball games.

    After watching their performance against the Dominican Republic, this is the closest anybody has ever come to the Dream Team.

    I far prefer the Winter Olympics to the Summer Olympics.

    Winter favorite: Figure Skating (in general) - Singles Free Skate (specific)

    Summer Favorite: either Volleyball or Diving

    Hockey.

    Overall, I find the summer games a lot less exciting than the winter games. Although rowing isn't bad to watch.

    Summer games: Olympic weightlifting. It's just unbelievable how those small guys can get over 200kg on top of their head from the ground. Forget bodybuilding and powerlifting, olympic weightlifting is for the real guys.

    Winter games: Hockey, of course.

    Cycling. But I'll probably watch more of it than usual just because it's in my country.

    Most anything is more entertaining on the Winter side, so I'll probably watch next to nothing on the Summer side. Time watched will probably be measured in the minutes (not hours).

    Even the silly sports (to me) are great on the Winter side - curling, slalom, all that good stuff. Hockey is of course the best.

    Men's gymnastics, rowing, track & field.

    Here's a schedule (you can switch between London and Eastern US time) for all the events.
