I have to admit the Winter Olympics were never high on the list for me. This year's games had very little appeal as well. I'm more of a Summer Olympic fan. Give me track and field, boxing, basketball, fencing (well ... maybe not fencing) and I'm a happy guy.
Now ... the screw up on the rings for the opening ceremony had possibilities. THAT was good television. Buy unfortunately, that was the only highlight I enjoyed.
Reasons? Well ...
I'll have to give style points to the teams that had snazzy pants this year.
I forget ... is skateboarding a summer olympic sport?
All I know is that the skaters that I did watch all fell and still won medals because their lutzes must have salchowed and I didn't realize it.
It must be a brutally exhausting sport. Imagine if they really killed something and would have to carry it, clean it and eat it too?
Debbie would never put up with that. Especially with me as a roommate.
As a southern boy who grew up in the city, I didn't really spend lots of time on the snow in the mountains.
When I taught school in Austria, I tried my hand at skiing and was laughed off the mountain when I showed up in jeans with a black wool coat on. (I was cold a wet for days).
Everybody else was wearing slick white ski suits. WHITE!!! Either they are so good that they know that they will never fall and have a search team look for them.
Or it's easier to spot the blood when they hit a tree.
