Not really. I doubt I will watch many of the competitions. I used to like watching them, but two things happened. 1) The networks started putting too many "human interest" stories, instead of real competition. 2) In an effort to get women watching, they started emphasizing sports that I'm not interested.
Unfortunately, now even if they show a lot of contests, I've gotten to the point, I just don't care to watch anymore. But then, my total sports viewing has nearly dropped off a cliff in the past decade.

PS Sorry to change the subject from CR and whether the Pitt Brand is now more valuable than the Penn State brand, but I am really looking forward to watching the Olympics the next couple of weeks...how about you?
