I love the Olympics.
It's the most positive force on this planet.
The best of the best from each country doing their best.
What more better in sports is there.

I only like the "young girls running around in tight leotards" event.

As much as I dislike LZR, the controversy of the technology is ludicrous.

If they are going implement restrictions on swim gears, then it should be done in all racing events that relies on equipments that are constantly evolving with the use of technology. Cycling, Kayaking, Rowing, etc.

I prefer the Winter Games as well. That being said though, I really only care about swimming and water polo. I was in competitive swimming for 12 years and I went to high school with one of the girls on the water polo team. Dara Torres was one of my idols when I was a wee little one and it's awesome to see her there hangin' with the kids. So I'm pretty biased as to what I watch. The controversy over the LZR suits is ridiculous. It's not like we're the only ones using technology. And it's not like you don't see any competitors in the old style suits anymore anyway. Everyone uses some sort of "fancy" suit. It's just the evolution of the sport.
I also watch cycling, some gymnastics (mainly cuz I want to see if anyone crashes and burns), and soccer.
But yeah...the swimmer and water polo bodies... *DROOL*
