1996: Atlanta. Most of the opening ceremony is a blur, but who can forget Muhammad Ali lighting the torch?
1996: Atlanta. This was the first I really paid attention to competitions, but not many were shown on TV. I do know the US women's soccer got gold too, but I didn't get a chance to watch any of those games. I was able to watch track and field, where Michael Johnson won gold in the 200m and 400m, set the world record for the 200 m (19.32), and wore a pair of great, gold shoes.

2008: Beijing. Not related to any of the sports, but Google got in on the fun by having a new Google icon every day during the Olympics. Each one featured one of the Chinese zodiac animals participating in a competition, and I would check every day to see what design it was. It was fun, and even though I couldn't much since I was at work, Google kept me entertained.
