First Day of Olympic Competition

Today was the first day of Olympic competition. I could watch it online where every event was being shown, or on one of the many channels on cable. I have found about six different ones showing Olympic coverage, although it varies through the day. 

I have watched women's soccer (Canada vs. South Africa), women's basketball (Australia vs. Great Britain), women's team handball (France vs. Norway), men's and women's rowing, and some swimming.  I am surprised by how much women's sports that I have watched. I enjoyed the soccer. I switched off the basketball. I suspect that neither of those teams will compete for the gold. The quality of play did not seem high. I watched the team handball purely out of curiosity. I was trying to figure out the rules as I watched. It is sort of cross between basketball and soccer.
