2008 could upset your personal rankings here, once those Games get underway. Never mind that rumors surfaced that the IOC told BOCOG to SLOW DOWN preparations for it.

Here's mine:

1. Sydney 2000 9.5--Aussies know how to put on a great party!

2. Los Angeles 1984 8.8--my first serious SOG memory, though marred by Soviet-led boycott, saved the movement  Colorful!

3. Athens 2004 8.4--very nice to see games come home

4.(tie) Atlanta 1996 8.2--some moments (like Michael Johnson)saves some big disappointments. Too much tacky commercialism

   Barcelona 1992 8.2--Amazing

7. Moscow 1980 6.4--very boycott marred but very fascinating to me of all of the SOG becuase of it

8. Montreal 1976 5.2--The debt, the debt that Quebec has to pay

9. Mexico City 1968 5.0--few memories, only learned about it

10. Munich 1972 4.2--reasons are obvious

6. Seoul 1988 8.0--Great effort
