    Opinions eh, cause I thought the London Olympics was a joy to behold and many of the events will last long in the memory (Farah, Ennis and the cycling golds)

    I loved every second of it.

    Yeah, but you're not talking about the event, you're talking about the politics behind the event.

    The actual event itself for me was fantastic.

    Same Here TGP. I didn't watch a single second of the Olympics. I haven't a clue who won any medals or what for. It held absolutely no interest for me. I couldn't wait for it to be over so I didn't have to endure the saturation news coverage!

    I don't think I actually dislike any sport. Plenty of them are "meh" but I'm struggling to think of one that I would say that I would completely dislike.

    I put it down to growing up with Transworld Sport as a kid!

    A lot of Rugby haters on here is this because of the pests? My hatred is historical as I was forced to play it at school and just find it pointless.

    Not being funny, but don't know what the Kardashians are. I have heard of Kim Kardashian, but only by name. Is she a model?

    I honestly totally avoid all celeb culture. Guessing she is a model who has become a celeb?

    I went off rugby at school when the Welsh sports teacher told me off for dribbling the ball up the field and scoring a try.

    Basically the ball was bouncing around in my own off so I kicked it forwards and then just ran and ran and ran, kicking the ball upfield in the process, until I reached the try line and touched down.

    I was chuffed to bits at my 'great' try, but the teacher was really angry and told me off for not picking up the ball.

    'Isn't the object to score a try?' I asked. Nope, he was having none of it. I scored 2 tries that day and was given a right rollicking, so it did put me off rugby for a long, long time.

    Like watching the boxing but my other sporting passion is motorsport. Specifically motorcycle road racing and four wheels on the oval racing scene. I think I've been to pretty much every oval track in the England over the years.

    Sports I can't stand, cricket, cricket,cricket and cricket. Also golf. But mainly cricket.

    I can take or leave pretty much anything else.

    I think there is probably a pill or something you need to take to make F1 interesting. I switched on the radio yesterday and there was live commentary???? Of cars going fast? I can save a fortune and stand on the M40 bridge and watch that.
    And American Football? Some long throwing while everyone else runs into each other? Lost on me.
