U.S.

Iraq, Afghanistan, and any other developing country with a small team. There's usually some African country with a swimmer who's never seen water or some other ridiculous underdog story. I'm a sucker for that kind of thing.

Rooting for USA. I'm a wrestler, so I'll be looking out for that. Judo, Gymnastics, beach volleyball, swimming, track and field, powerlifting, anything really, except for shooting, I find that super boring.

Not a fan of sports in general (except MMA). I'd really love to see the martial arts, particularly Judo.

Umm, no. He participated in the Deaflympics.

Here is Team USA Wrestling roster:

Will be watching for Marcie Van Dusen in Women's wrestling. She's pretty local to my area. She was the first girl to place at divisionals with the boys, but didn't get to go to Master's because only 1st - 5th qualified.

He'd need to train exclusively to be able to compete with anyone on the olympic team. Besides the fact that he's in his 30's and by the time 2012 comes around there will be a fresh crop of studs who are already better than him.
