    Alot of us have backgrounds in Greco/Freestyle wrestling, TKD :mamoru:, Judo, Boxing ect.. Anyone excited to see any of these events? I know 2 guys boxing and 1 guy in the TKD the boxers are good medal chances the TKD guy not so sure but he has done ok in the lead up so hopefully he will go ok.

    Anyway Im stuck watching it at work for the next 17-18 days for work (looking after the mobile video feeds) so who should I keep an eye out for?

    I haven't followed TKD since the 2000 Olympics, so I have no clue who this year's team is, but I'll watch like a retard monkey.

    Go to NBCOlympics.com and they've got a grid for what sports are aired where.

    All next week, Judo is online at some ungodly hour. I'll watch while I feed the baby.

    TKD is the week after, all online also at some ungodly hour.

    Boxing is all over the place.

    Wrestling looks to be 90% online, at less ungodly hours.

    Apparently the US Olympic TKD team is the Lopez family.

    I cant wait to see Judo and TKD. TKD can get pretty dry but every once and awhile you see some one get ko'd by accident lmao. Spinning hook kick ftw
