Olympic Trials

I tried to watch some of the Olympics from Rio, I really did.  But I couldn’t tell where the competition started and the commercials left off, and with all the sappy stories and the feel-good boosterism for Brazil, I just couldn’t take it.

Let me know when the men’s gymnastics final is on and I’ll TiVo it.

2 barks and woofs on “Olympic Trials

  1. Really, I have my lap top going and watching some. I watched Phelps get his 19th last night and Russ said nothing. It sure beats being behind the wheel for 3 days dodging road debris.

  2. I’m with you. There’s no excuse for the way NBC is covering the Olympics. They’re even dragging MSNBC into it. I found myself watching fencing on the latter, though, and learned something about the sport so that was twenty minutes worth my time. But I’m done now. If I’d thought back to the last Olympics when the coverage was pretty much the same dumb stuff I’d not have been surprised. So I guess I’ll read about it in the sports pages. At least it’s unfiltered there.
