    I kinda was but it was kinda tough. Some of the things going on were kinda cool but there's a whole lot of boring stuff mixed in. Watching the cult members carry out the giant Olympic flag was like watching pain dry they were moving so slow.

    Are the opening ceremonies always so dull? I watched for maybe 10 minutes at various times and it was dreadful the each time. It's the first time I've watched any part of the opening ceremony, and it will most likely be the last...and probably the last I see of this years Olympics outside what is plastered all over somewhere. I simply don't care.

    at least skaters have a brain. Hockey players are required to have a frontal lobotomy before signing their first contract.

    I am definitely not a fan but I can appreciate the talent and hard work behind it.

    Pretty irritating that when I get time to sit back, relax and watch some Olympics......................all I see are stupid long interviews from Bob Costas with maybe 15 minutes of actual events :(

    Just can't watch this Olympics coverage. Too many interviews, not enough events.

    I agree with @ChldsPlay and @Avery. What I think I'm going to do is try some of the other NBC channels. Focusing on the local channel will have me falling asleep. If I have it on NBCSports, the cable network, I believe I get more events, and I think Dan Patrick is the guiding media person vs Bob Costas.

    Am I the only person that has yet to see an interview while watching the Olympics?

    Could be because I have hardly used regular NBC like WoodysGirl said.

    The problem is......the events are only on three channels - NBC, NBC Sports and USA. I have yet to catch anything on USA and when I can watch(usually later at night), I only get regular NBC.

    Also, if I do get to see it during the day on either channel, it usually is just a replay late at night. The coverage so far has been sub par.
