With the Olympics underway and the Chargers enjoying an off day, some players shared which events they'll be tuning in to watch this year:
Danny Woodhead: My whole family likes to watch the gymnastics together. It's good bonding with my wife and older daughter especially. I also like track and field.
Kyle Emanuel: Track and field, but also swimming for Michael Phelps. I watched him live in Omaha. He's unreal.
Manti Te'o: I like watching track. I like watching races. I ran track one year but it's nice to see guys who actually are fast!
Corey Liuget: I'm the only world-class athlete I care about! I'm joking. Seriously though, I'll watch the Olympics. Everybody likes track and field but shot-put is also cool, too.
King Dunlap: The 4X100, 200 and 400 because my mom and sister ran those! I also like to watch Michael Phelps.
Antonio Gates: Basketball!
Travis Benjamin: I ran track, so I will watch all those races.
Zach Mettenberger: Golf; watching rugby (is) cool. Gymnastics is always awesome; so many sports to choose from.
Tyrell Williams: I like the 200 meter sprints.
Jason Verrett: USA Basketball!
Ryan Carrethers: I usually like luge where the people are laying on their backs sliding down ice, but this is the Summer Olympics. I'll watch soccer.
Kenneth Farrow: Usually track because I ran it in high school.
Joe Barksdale: The weightlifting is pretty cool; I like to see the power lifters. I actually have a frat brother who's on the U.S. power lifting team this year.
Kellen Clemens: Golf and track.
