Well the Olympics start today. I guess when you’re a kid you watch them more. You can’t get enough. When you get older you find an event or two you are interested in and after that you ignore them.
It’s not that the athletes aren’t talented in them. It’s just that a number of the events are well… boring. There is a ton of time in-between competitors, anything not being scored with a stopwatch is leaving open the possibility for human error/rigging and frankly having to hear the Olympic theme over and over gets on my nerves.
I’m sure NBC will post solid ratings for the event but don’t count me in. I have watched less and less in recent years and while there’s still interest of mine in much of the skiing events I likely will only make a concentrated effort to watch the bobsleigh.
I don’t know really the point of this post other then to say. It’s here. If you like it then great, if you hate it then watch something else, and if you have no opinion like myself then turn it on here or there if you got nothing else to do and maybe you’ll find something you like.
