Managed my work commute today ( had to- no other way to get to work), but felt unwell a couple of times. 2 days rest it is. Will be on call this weekend, so I will do something like your suggestion, Ferg, but whilst watching the olympic marathon from th etready- I quite enjoy watching the marathon that way- a good way to while away a couple of hours!
Re: olympics before the athletics start- as a previous target rifle shooter myself, with friends competing, I am duty bound to show interest in that, although in general it can be a bit like watching paint dry- at least there is an objective measure of who won, rather than it being a matter of opinion, and open to all sorts of bias, or even bribery an corruption.
Some of th egymnastics is watchable, but I don't really believe it is objectively markable.
I enjoy the outdoors cyccling, except when the course is downrigh tdangerous, and would enjoy the rowing if only the weather hadn't made it a lottery. Golf and tennis just seem wrong, but I agree, the events I really want to see are hept/ decathlon, marathon, and 10k. I can sort of take or leave a lot of the field events ( especially the big blokes chucking stuff, and even more so the big wimmin chucking stuff.
I find the diving entralling, as I constantly expect their tiny briefs to fall off..........is that wrong?
