There is practically nothing else on all day except the Commonwealth Games at the moment. Are you watching? How does it compare to the Olympics and Winter Olympics?

I'm not watching it; I didn't watch the Olympic either. It is actually quite annoying because almost all the BBC channels are broadcasting it non-stop. Even BBC News. The news on BBC 1 was cancelled for the games, so I started watching it on the BBC News channel. Then they got cut off halfway through their bulletin to show exactly the same thing BBC 1 was showing!
Oh my gosh! That would be so annoying!

Yes I watch all except the hockey.
I love the swimming, and watched the marathon also.

Australia is doing very well, however we have many channels and it is only on about 3 of them I think.

I pick and chose what I watch and if there is something better on, which there usually is not, I do not watch!

I find it exciting when we win.

I'm not watching - I love the Olympics and World Cup (and Winter Olympics) and watch heaps of those. For some reason, I just don't get into the Commonwealth Games...no hype, I guess...
I watched a little the other night, but I'm not going out of my way to catch anything.

Sporting events in Europe are shown here at night in Oz and lately it has been a feast. The Tour de France has recently finished and has been overlapped by the CommGames. Soon the Vuelta (Tour of Spain) and the Pan-Pac swimming will begin and then it will nearly be time for cricket. I will be able to avoid contrived pseudo-realities, bang-bangs and sob-fests for months.
No it's not really my cup of tea to tell the truth
I dinít even know it was on. Iíve seen nothing about it anywhere on the t.v. Itís not even mentioned on the news, when an Australian wins a medal.

Iím looking forward to the Tour de France. Even though Iíve only tried to ride a bike once in my life, & just love watching the race, & the countryside is always so beautiful. I even enjoy seeing the locals & tourists on the side of the road who are watching the race. It will be starting on July 4, 2015, so only about 3 weeks away. I wrote the date onto my laptop calendar, last year!
