Here's the number of countries that won a medal the last two Olympics:
2014 Winter Olympics: 26
2012 Summer Olympics: 85
Eighty five, Joe! Some of the countries that medaled at the 2012 Summer Olympics: Afghanistan, Bahrain, Gabon, Kuwait, Moldova, Qatar. I had no idea Gabon was a country. It's possible it's a fake FIFA country.
Plus, Summer has rugby! How did I not realize rugby was in the Olympics?
And because so much of the fun of the Olympics is randomly tuning in to find SOME sort of sport on, the Summer Olympics is perfect because no matter the hour of the day, someone's either playing beach volleyball or rasslin' or jumping off a diving board or kicking someone in the face. These are the sports we play and can understand. We need no primers. The Summer Olympics are for the most casual of sports fans. We can just dive right in, anytime. (And then do a synchronized swim routine.)
