I'm just not feeling it. I mean, I appreciate the work and dedication and talent it takes to get there but THIS one just doesn't grab me.
Its easy for me to be a bit biased, as I am not generally interested in most sports at all. Occasionally the olympics allows a glimpse into the best of the best doing something interesting, but I usually feel like I could be doing something better with my time.
And in my observation, right now theres a lot of more important current events to distract from sports, as opposed to sports distracting from current events.
But thats just me.
Crossing sports off my list, and checking it twice, yep there goes another one. Mr. and Missus sports person feel free to offer up your particular brand of crazy, but do it somewhere else we're all full up around here. Most days now when I'm watching any kind of sport, I feel like Ralphie when he was decoding his message, and found out the message was just another crummy commercial.
Funny, it has always been the crowds that I dislike the most. I find sports great for individuals, ie to play. Really, I only like boxing, a condoned sport where really, they are trying to kill each other. If my Dad hadn't been a boxing fan, I probably wouldn't care for that either.I think it's because of the lack of excitement without the crowds. I'm a huge hockey fan and it took a while to enjoy the games on TV without a crowd. When they announced they were going to play them that way I didn't think it would matter but after watching the first crowdless game I found it almost boring and tuned out for a while.
Yeah, I typically have enjoyed the Olympics more than this one. The commercials (on the NBC primetime broadcast anyway) are just nonstop!! Of course track hasn't even started yet, and that for me is my favorite part.
Corporations rule and control the united states and their control grows great everyday. Every business has been invaded and the people,(at least half of them) have been dumbed down to ignorance. They are the only ones going to a sporting event where safety and control over current health issues is at an ebb.I've never been big into summer olympics. I far prefer winter. But in general, olympics (and really most professional sports events) have lost its luster with me. Too corporate, pretentious, political, and downright corrupt and fraudulent at every level.
