The games are gone

The 2006 Winter Olympics are history and I must confess I saw very little of the games on TV. I can’t really say why I didn’t watch more of the games. I like watching some of the sports such as the skiing events and speed skating. But my attention span is a little too short these days to sit and view hours upon hours of olympic feats.

I’m sorry U.S. skier Bode Miller didn’t win any medals. I kind of liked the fact that he talked in the past about skiing “wasted.” Bigtime sports seems to have an excess of facade. Miller may have been ill-advised talking about it and perhaps somewhat reckless for skiing while intoxicated. But he seemed real. That’s got to count for something.
