who watches the Olympics for the crowds? doesn't affect my viewing experience whatsoever whether there is a live audience or not.

It adds atmosphere ffs. Who the fuck wants to watch sport in empty stadiums? It’s really not hard to understand. I don’t know if you’re a sporty person but sports need atmosphere pal

I get it if you're there in person it's fun to be part of a crowd but on TV it makes no difference to me.

yeah I really can't enjoy sports if i can't see the snot running out of a winners nose during the celebration. I know theres a pandemic and examples to be set and all, but i really don't get why my friends call me dumb-dumb

The atmosphere from a passionate crowd is great and definitely carries over on TV, but it's pretty peripheral to my enjoyment watching at home.

I mean I've been watching livestream concerts throughout the pandemic with no crowds. In person it's great fun to be a part of an energetic audience but meh, I don't care if I'm at home, whether it be concerts or sports (though admittedly I'm not a big sports person anyway)

Definitely made the six nations really weird to watch earlier this year, I get it.

Normally love the Olympics but the lack of crowd and the nonsense with the masks has put me off. I’ve watched bits of it but not as interested as past games

Tell us you're a covid denier without telling us you're a covid denier

I really wish we had softball in the UK.

most players / fans i've seen / interacted with have straight energy, actually. probably less of a stereotype than lacrosse.

i love baseball, but softball's smaller field and fewer innings increase the pace and that makes it so fun.

It's probably a regional thing. In some places, softball is basically all lesbians.

@Elisa an Italian 100m winner? Fucking madness. Didn’t you guys smash the world record in the cycling too. I watched the gymnastics floor this morning that the Italian girl came second, she’s 30 years old and never won an Olympic medal in 4 attempts, was a nice moment.

Some of the Olympic sports are ridiculous though. There should be no Football, Golf or Tennis. Keep the rugby 7s they are great fun

Yep, we should replace those with Buzkashi or Eukonkanto. Real sports with a real following, unlike tennis or football. Crowd pleasers as they say.

In my experience, yes, but I don't know if that's the case across the country. I've also heard Americans say the same thing, so it might come down to the particular city or state/province. It also could be a bit of an age group thing. With most women's sports, it seems like the concentration of lesbians tends to go up after college.

probably - historically our best college teams come from the west coast or the south, and at least in the latter the huge southern belle energy feels like it cancels out the queer women energy, haha.

There aren't many open lesbians around here, so I don't associate it with that necessarily, but softball definitely attracts a certain type of woman. When I was in high school there were girls on the team who "chewed" tobacco by putting it between their toes lol.
