Only way I'll get away from the direness of the games is to not watch 'em, TBH. Can honestly say I couldn't care less that the tournament's going on.
And that's probably even more radical than most of our members. I'd imagine some people will at least tune in, and enjoy it if their team does well. I don't think I'd be remotely pleased if England won the thing - at least, no more than I am, for instance, when a British athlete wins a medal at the Olympics.
