To spice up the games maybe we can have a combo Tiananmen Square/ Munich hostage taking (and find the next Jim McKay?)
With a lack of TV coverage for most of the Olympic Sports during the rest of the year, China's lack of adequate health procedures (avian flu epidemic anyone?), Tibetan rights violations, exporting of dangerous and illegal products, economic growth that is sucking up a lot of oil, pollution, and the time zone issues, I can't imagine why anyone would watch any of it. Why promote China, who spies on us, and whose state run financial institutions have enough clout to negatively influence our economy.
Anyone interested in the Global Warming issues should boycott the Olympics.
There are a long list of reasons to not watch and to not buy products from any of the companies who have bought into China's party. Just GOOGLE "summer olympic sponsors" for a list.

Do not worry..T20 Cricket will be in Olympics by 2016 or 2020. If you do not know about Cricket find out what it is and watch it on You Tube. It is simply exciting!!!!
