    Pretty much every sport at the Olympics.

        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    The comedian Lee Mack does a really funny sketch about watching gymnastics every four years and nobody having a clue what is going on.

    Search for it on youtube, it's worth a viewing!

    Sailing's a good shout, mainly because Britannia still does a fairly decent impression of ruling the waves and we normally pick up a few medals.

    Modern Penthalon is another. The chances of me watching a minority sport increase exponentially if there's a chance of a GB medal.

    Can't get onboard with handball; seems like the result of a drunken one-night stand between association football & basketball.

    Haha, agree strongly with the handball love in this thread.

    Dad and I used to watch a fair bit of the athletics when the Olympics were on, and would always tune in if we had a Kiwi in the pool.

    There's a doubles event in that slalom tomorrow. Can not believe how that works out.
