I must be missing some genes.. I have absolutely no interest in sports. Not even football/soccer and it is often a social disability. Does geek's have their own olympics?

This is why I'm so gratefull for the BBC in the UK. Not only do they not have adverts but they are broadcasting 24 additional channels just for the olympics. The only problem is, you have to decide what to watch live and what to watch on 'catchup'
