Olympics? Will you watch?

The Summer Olympics come around every 4 years and in just two weeks, they will be upon us, live from London.

The 2008 Olympics were memorable for Michael Phelps' 8 gold medals. He will be competing again but this time with a chance for just 7 golds.

The U.S. has assembled another nearly impossible to beat men's basketball team.

Delaware will be represented by Andrew Gemmell, a swimmer who went to the Charter School of Wilmington before matriculating to the University of Georgia.

Usain Bolt will again be running the 100 and there are major names everywhere...but will you be watching?

I know 4 years ago I was on my beach vacation the main week of the Olympics but watched as much of the Phelps drama as I could.

The Olympics specialize in sports we rarely see...sometimes just once every four years. What interests you in the summer games? How much time will you spend watching? NBC hopes its a lot.
