  1. Maybe some of the Opening Ceremonies. I love the Olympics but have never gotten into the pageantry.

  2. Obviously the Opening Ceremonies as I’m all Olympics until the close of the games in a couple of weeks. I watched a lot of the soccer action over the past couple of days and the Brazilian crowds have been great. I’m interested to see what kind of show they put on out there tonight because I heard it should be pretty good and the ratings too since it will be only on an one-hour tape delay which is basically almost live for us.
