Watch all Olympic Events LIVE – Plus Olympic Giveaway (ends 8/1/12)

Are you excited about the Olympics? They just a little more than a week away.

I couldn’t imagine being an Olympic athlete. Not only do you have the pressure of the entire world watching your ever move, but you also have to be away from family and friends for a while. Some Olympic hopefuls even have to be away from their furry (or in some cases feathery) friends too.

Check out this video that showcases some of this year’s Olympic participants talking about their pets. One young lady even has chickens as pets. I hear they do make great pets, oddly enough.


Did you know that for the first time ever you can watch all 32 sports and all 302 events steaming live on NBCOlympics.com. I think that is pretty amazing that all 302 competitions can be watched live as they happen. Obviously not at the same time. LOL!

Don’t forget to watch the opening ceremony on NBC on July 27, 2012. Check your local TV listing for airtime.

Are you a fan of the Olympics? Do you know anyone who is participating or making the trek “across the big pond” to watch the events in person? If so you might be interested in this special Olympic giveaway.

One winner will receive everything pictured which includes:

  • 2012 Olympics NBC Duel Flags Pin
  • Trophy Cap
  • 2012 Olympics Team USA Backpack
  • ¾ Sleeve Raglan T-Shirt
  • Olympic Calendar

This giveaway is open to US residents only and will end on August 1, 2012 as 12:01 AM (EST). The winner will be chosen at random using a random number generator from all eligible entries. The winner will be notified via e-mail.

To enter please leave a comment on this post and tell me what is your favorite Summer Olympics sport to watch?

For extra entries you can use the Rafflecopter widget (below).

  15. Lisa Welch says:

    The Gymnastics, specifically parallel bars always facinate me. I always wanted my girls to get into gymnastics, but they said it wasn’t for them. However, when my daughter Alli was in PopWarner cheer, I would always cry whenever I saw them do their routine. I think it’s absolutely amazing that such young people can pull something together and make it so fantastic!
    Cheers to the USA Olympic Team 2012!
