Watch the Olympics Like a Pro

How to Watch the OlympicsYou're a sports nut, and you've been counting down the days until Opening Ceremony this year.  Or, you just want to know how that horse thingy works in the gymnastics competition.  How to Watch the Olympics by David Goldblatt and Johnny Acton is the book for you.  

Are you watching the 2010 Winter Olympics?

* Yes, every minute of it! * I'm only watching a few events. * I'll watch if I don't have anything better to do. * No way! * What Olympics?

Discover the Winter Games Anew!

For those of you who have missed the myriad of commercials playing on television these days, the Winter Olympic Games are about to start in Vancouver on February 12th. This is only the third time in the History of the Olympics that Canada, the second largest nation on Earth, will host the Olympics. I am looking forward to this year’s winter Olympics, especially in light of what happened in the 2008 Olympic games in Beijing. Forty-eight new World Records and over a hundred thirty new Olympic Records were set in 2008. If we see anything as exciting at that in the 2010 games, they will be glorious to watch.
