Too true. I don’t pay attention, too much because many of the events seem redundant to me. After I’ve seen you run the 400, I don’t need to see you run the 1000. Don’t get the bobbing-in the water bit either. Just not for me. I do like the skulls, because recently started doing some heavy kayaking. Doing these things in real life, gives you a much better appreciation of what you’re watching.
I REALLY enjoyed watching the surfing and skate-boarding. I suck at both but have tried. If they add more events that I can relate to, like sky-diving and cliff-jumping, I’ll tune in more!
