am i a terrible american for not giving a crap about the summer olympics? i mean, i don't like watching people run, swim, or play table tennis. i don't get my jollies off of watching 13 year old girls bounce around on a balance beam.
please convince me to care about these "games."

I love watching the Olympics. Not every sport is enjoyable to me but most are.
Also, the little girl gymnast aren't nearly as good as the men gymnast, they are incredible. What they do amazes me.

don't get me wrong...i'm a big supporter of 'merica, but the olympics kind of bore me. maybe i'd get into it more if i was there. kinda like watching golf on tv doesn't interest me, but seeing it live is pretty cool. i will tell you, what these athletes do is incredible, but i just can't get into it.

I love the Olympics and try to watch every time, summer or winter. I will try to catch the opening ceremony tonite but I have a bunch of stuff to do. (I hate NBC coverage though)

I'll watch... it's not as good as the Curling in the Winter Olympics, but I'll definitely catch the womens beach volleyball.

I love the olympics, too. I'm not much into track and field, but I'll watch gymnastics, swimming, etc.

Probably not a terrible American as much as you are terrible at grammar.
