Skipping the Olympics

Unless Comcast can tap into the CBC, which does little more than just present the events, I’m going to skip the Olympics. NBC has turned it into a 17-day cluster of sob stories, pre-packaged pathos, and more background stories on the lives of athletes with all the breathless journalism of Teen People. Feh.

So until it’s all over it’s HBO, On-Demand, and my collection of DVD’s if I want to watch TV. Then again, there are a whole lot of books I have on my bedside table and a novel or two in progress.

Anybody else have any other suggestions?
