Last week’s poll asked how you dispose of prescription drugs. What was most surprising was that the majority of people who responded get rid of their drugs in some other method than was available but provided no clue as to what that was. If you were one of the ‘Other’ respondents, how do you get rid of your medications?
This week’s poll asks about your favorite Summer Olympics sport. While there are many ways to determine what the best Olympic sports are including views, attendance, number of athletes, discussions on social media, etc, a few events have always been considered the most popular usually with swimming, gymnastics, and track and field topping the lists.
I obviously prefer to watch swimming although this year it’s really incredibly annoying to have NBC pushing so very hard to create this artificial rivalry between Phelps and Lochte which those who have followed swimming over the years knew would eventually turn in Lochte’s favor–which it may finally have this year. The other problem is that with the time difference and the availability of online streaming of events hours before primetime, we know and likely have seen the results of important events long before NBC decides to show them. Boo NBC.
So what is/are your favorite Olympic sport(s)? Has your interest in Olympic sports changed throughout the years? Do you plan to do a lot of watching of the events live online, are you going to read about them only, or are you going to wait for NBC’s coverage during primetime? What do you think of the Olympic Committee dropping softball and baseball but leaving in other games like basketball?
