A Los Angeles city councilwoman wants to block the live stream of the Olympics on city computers.

Councilwoman Jan Perry says she's worried that so many employees are watching, the city's computer system is being threatened.

An internal email was sent on Tuesday asking city workers to stop watching the Olympics online for fear of a computer meltdown.

Perry isn't the only councilmember upset. Councilman Dennis Zine said city employees aren't paid to watch the Olympics on their computers or TV.
