What is it about the Olympics that takes sports which barely blip on the radar to some of the most watched events on television?  Yes, they only happen every four years, but it still doesn’t make too much sense. 

Most sports have yearly world championships and they get only a smidgeon of the attentions given to the Olympics.  The Olympics take sports like swimming, rowing, track and field, and gymnastics (my personal favorite) and turn them into a Super Bowl.

Maybe it's because all the different sports are at the same place and time and because the athletes are representing their countries.  Maybe the media creates enough of a circus to draw most eyes to the spectacle.  Whatever it is I am hooked and will watch the 2012 Olympics closely, rooting for my favorites, because the Olympics are AWESOME!
