The Olympics, and NBC this year.

Last Sunday, the closing ceremony of the Olympics took place.
Now I've watched a few Olympics before, but I've gotta say this one was probably the most memorable.
Even though I actually managed to get a real close-up seat in the 2008 Bei Jing Olympics, 2012 London will be much more remembered.
A few factors would include:
Woman's Gymnastics, all that buzz about the team
Usain Bolt, fastest man on Earth
All that stuff about China's hardcore training routines
Phelps new Olympic Medals record!
I guess NBC and its huge failures could also contribute to it.
I can't count how many times the network had to apologize or push through a screw-up.
Apparently there's an event called #NBCFail on Twitter dedicated to "admiring" (heh heh) all the malfunctions and mess-ups of NBC.
USA managed to pull through with 104 medals, while China lost its powerhouse lead from the beginning.
I don't normally watch sports much, but Olympics has been the exception for me.
I recall going to the library and just sitting in their huge room with the projected TV screen watching random Olympics matches.
Out of all the events I've watched, I think I liked Men's Beach Volleyball with Dalhausser and Rogers the most. (Not sure if I spelled their names correctly.)
Simply because of all the saves and spikes.
What was your favorite Olympics event?
