Wake up, record all olympics, continue on with day, watch news on Fox which doesn't give a @#$% about the olympics, watch olympics, skip commercials, go to sleep. But yeah there were a few times where I got spoilers like Usain Bolt winning the 100 and 200, but that was inevitable and not really a spoiler.
Then whatever NBC didn't air, I could watch online in full with no commercials.
I think the Olympics were less significant here in the US than in previous years because we have so many distractions right now, such as the polarized politics surrounding the upcoming elections
Elections are on olympics year every year.

I give London a 10 though, from what I say between the outdoor courses, stadiums, scenery, atmosphere, everything was very electrifying and well put on to me. However, since I'm in America, I haven't seen the closing ceremony yet.
The olympics have become a bit of a milestone to me. I look back on China 2008 and I was just finishing middle school or I look at Rio 2016 and it's hard to believe I will be graduating college then. So for me olympics are sentimental in that sense.
U-S-A. U-S-A. U-S-A!
