I mean, the whole media has got this buzz about it, and I want my country (UK) to do well and everything, but I can't watch more than 5 mins in any sport. Maybe a little longer in football (soccer) but nothing else.
Anybody else just don't see the point of watching it?
- Yeah I think it's boringVote A
- Actually I watch itVote B
- What's the olympics?Vote C

I try to watch it.
Besides the time difference, I find that Japanese media focus so much on their own athletes (much more than in the other countries I've lived in) that I can't possibly enjoy watching the games and feelcthe atmosphere.
They win gold and I don't even know who they were competing against or who got the other medals.
As for the media raving the games, sometimes it's needed to don't let an event pass in blank and create memories... like birthdays, lol.
I hate when they do it with things completely unrelated to the country's society or culture though.1

Once in four years. We can put up with it for the short time it is on. The competitors working so hard for years to put for a tremendous effort during this event. For any that like physical competition, these people deserve out attention and congratulations.1
