For many people in my generation, (Hint: I had a crush on both Bobby Sherman and David Cassidy growing up.  Different times of course as I was not a floozy.), watching the Olympics was a huge deal.  Maybe it's because we didn't have the massive amount of choices on television that we have today, ...
