Mine are the same, although I have to say I'm not fond of synchronized diving. Was disappointed with gymnastics this year since some didn't make it through to the next round.
Did you watch the opening ceremonies? i have a friend that lives in England who was lucky enough to win tickets to watch them rehearse for opening ceremonies. I watched at 4pm and she watched at 9pm so it was like we were watching it together.
I love the swimming and gymnastics. I'm British ( Scottish) but I was yelling at the tv when Phelps was swimming last night, he was amazing.
The opening ceremony was amazing, I felt very proud to be British.

It was really cool to watch the relay race (I assume that is the one you were yelling at). He made history again and still had (has?) 3 races to go . Should be interesting to see what the final count ends up at...but he does say that this is his last go of it.

What I've learned along the way:
Just because no one sees it, doesn't mean it doesn't count
I enjoy all of the water sports except for water polo. Gymnastics are entertaining too. I have a friend who only watches the gymnastics for the falls. lol
These silly Olympics tho...by the time it's all over, my weight gain will be around 5lbs! AGH! I just can't stop the munchies while sitting on the couch.
My dentist would probably frown on it, but whenever I sit for a long stretch (working, reading, movie night, sports on tv), I fill a big cup with crushed ice, pour over something like a Vitamin Water Zero or a low calorie Fuze, and just crunch away. Keeps my mouth busy, definitely hydrates, 15 calories max, and my tongue gets so numb I forget about snacking .
