Olympics open thread.
So, how are the Winter Olympics treating you? As a broadcast-TV-only, no-Tivo household, we're captives to Bob Costas and company, but he seems to have a kind of sense of humor this year. (Puts on a cape after work? Oh yeah, me, too.) And while I enjoy the skating events, I'm ready to come out and say it: ballet should be an Olympic sport, too. Why not?
Even though I grew up at the base of Provo Canyon — Robert Redford's Sundance Resort is on the other side of the mountain — my family never took up downhill skiing, and I've always perceived most of the Winter Olympic sports as rich-people events; my winter sport was competitive inner-tubing. But I don't hold any grudges: some of my jumps were, as they say, big and huge.
Feel free to share highlights, lowlights, favorite links to Olympics commentary and trivia about the games in the comments.
