As I've watched the Olympics this year I've realized something. No, not that NBC's coverage sucks, I've known that for years and have lamented the fact that I can't watch on CBC. No, I've realized that I don't really care about the winter games. Even with the US getting a record medal haul, I find I'd rather watch something else or do something else. I've watched a little down hill skiing, some speed skating, and some bobsledding. Other than that it seems that the majority of televised events I have no interest in or loathe. I don't care about hockey, cross country skiing, figure skating, or the biathlon. And I'll be damned if I'm going to watch ice dancing or curling. The recent Simpsons episode about curling even made me angry. I think I have just about hit my limit on how many winter games I can watch. I could watch some more bobsledding and the luge, but after that I think I'm done for the next 4 years.
