Was starting to look forward to this, then I remembered the stupid time difference. Not going to see much of it because I'll be busy sleeping instead

Brazil are only 4 hours behind. So most of the events which require light and not in a stadium are at a good time. It's just the final of athletics event that might be an issue as most of those are late at night, 100m final is 2am for us but all qualifying it early afternoon. BBC Sport online will cover everything for you. :)



Hmm, pie.

I always watch the Olympics.

New thing this year curious to see is Rugby 7s.



Never really see much of the Olympics, would like to watch a few things this time around. Basketball and boxing mostly, but probably a few other things too.

huh, that's not so bad. I just saw the time of the opening ceremony and assumed it was a huge difference.

In Romania the opening cerenomy begins at 2:00AM, so it's not looking too pretty for me..

When do gymnastic events start? Too lazy to look it up.



I'm expecting Brazil to do better than it usually does, but that's still not much XP



Tagging. Don't expect Mexico to win a lot of medals but it should be fun to watch regardless.



                                                                                     

Shambolic, utterly shambolic.

Coupled with the least interest there has ever been in an Olympics due to the corruption and cheating.

Brazil should never have been awarded the games.



I'm not really here!
