Ok, let me get this off my conscience right off the bat. Yes, I did put the shovel down and watch some of the Olympics over the last two weeks. No, not all of it was 'white noise', while I worked. Here are a few points that registered with me. The Downhill Giant Slalom and the Super-G might be the most exciting of all events. I do not understand why Ice Dancing is in the Olympics. Sport? Curling is comic relief for me! Hockey is still the big draw, but get rid of the professionals and bring back the collegiate skaters. Overuse of the editing button, showing only the 'winners', ruins an event like the 4-Man Bobsled for me. The Two Man Men's Luge looks very wrong! The NBC broadcast was embarrassing. Jingoism is alive and well and 'living' amongst us. Why, why, why when a US skier comes in 24th is he interviewed first, leaving the winners nowhere to be seen. To be perfectly honest, I want to see the great Olympic athletes compete and win their medals, NOT just the US athletes. Oh well, with the almighty dollar in control of the Games, this will never change. Bottomline: what I watched, I enjoyed. How about you?
