I care.  Just hoping they show some popular or traditional sports that even if Americans aren't expected to medal in and/or sweep.

I used to love the Olympics, but now I get kind of a "World's Fair" anachronistic vibe from it.

I'm looking forward to the Olympics.  I agree with birdymaker that the games have been tainted somewhat, but there is still a lot of drama involved.

In Canada, we REALLY look forward to the winter games.  There's much more interest in those.

You won't find it.  It's really sesquipedaliophobia, everyone knows that.
