I've been a bit slack at posting anything so far so got my act together today finally.
I've been enjoying the Olympics immensely although I could do with it being ad free or far less ads and even better, having a red button option so you can watch any event currently on, like the BBC and their red button option, but accept Aus TV isn't quite there yet with such innovation I also get frustrated it is obviously being so slanted toward the Aussies competing and missing out on some amazing live events/races/medals etc as no Aussies were involved. Of course they show them later in the highlights but its not quite the same as watching live
I'm still rather clueless who many of the Aussie presenters are and also many of the Aussie representing their country. I do follow some sports in depth and so recognise lots of the Aussies in those but for the rest, I look a bit blank.
I still cheer Team GB on and am chuffed the team is doing so well. Got up really early the other day to watch the track cycling and cheer the GB team on. Same with one or two other events. I do cheer the Aussies on also (although not in events where they are head to head with GB). My Aus hubby is cheering his team on and my son identifies fully as an Aussie now and cheers them on too (although he does love Cav in the cycling and cannot help but cheer him on when competing).
The time difference has been a bit of a bugger too but there. I quite enjoy the later evening TV viewing and up early to watch stuff. I also found the Rio timetable of events handy and have recorded a few things and watched them as soon as I woke.
