TV ratings for the London Olympics are much higher than anyone expected, perhaps in part because KIRO's John Curley and his family just can't get enough.
"I don't know what it is. I guess it's the drama. It's the fact that everybody regardless of their ability to do even a cartwheel suddenly becomes an expert in the most obscure moves of having to do with the vault," Curley says.
That hit home for Curley watching the gymnastics competition during the past week with his aging father.
"Hey she didn't get the takeoff she needed, she needed better height on the takeoff," Curley laughs as he imitates his dad.
The KIRO host admits he's also shed a few tears as well, in large part because he's a self admitted "wimp."
Among the most emotional moments for Curley was during an interview with Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, who stopped the conversation to recognize the playing of the United States national anthem.
