Medieval?  The joust?   Sword fighting?  Caber toss?   Burning witches at the stake? Plague spread?

Just hoping our dopers get caught less often than the other countries' dopers.

We're only expected to get 125 medals?  That seems low to me.

Not even planning to watch.

Incredibly bored by the whole thing.

Give me the Packers over the Olympics any day of the week.

Another world record in Indy. Should be interesting to see US vs Australia in swimming.

Pretty cool setup for the pool in Lucas Oil stadium.

Volleyball, the sprinting in track, short distance swimming are all fun.

We'll watch some gymnastics, some track, a little swimming and diving, maybe some of the gold-medal basketball or volleyball games. I'm curious about how the Nadal-Alcaraz pairing will do, too.

Can only watch so much, and both the DEFCON-3 level jingoism and long feature stories bore us.

In all, maybe we'll watch 10-12 hours. We'll enjoy the competitions we like, and then we'll be happy the hype is over.

Who is displaying jingoism on the broadcast? It's a big stretch to say that because NBC shows more American athletes, or shows a medal count, that this constitutes jingoism. Most of America wants to see American athletes. It's like that in every country. Calling it jingoism is hyperbole.
 Get the peacock app and you can watch any event you like.
Viewers who want to stream the Olympics can sign up for a Peacock account. With a Peacock Premium subscription (only $5.99 a month), you'll get access to the full NBC broadcast of the Paris Olympics, including Opening and Closing Ceremonies, plus live streaming coverage of every single sport, competition session and medal ceremony.  Also included are always-on Olympics channels, replays, highlights, documentaries and nonstop commentary.-Okay this last part isn't really a selling point.

Jingoism shouldn't bother you.  Not snagging 200+ of the 339 medals should.
