The TV broadcast schedule this week has been dominated by coverage of the Olympics, Olympics and more Olympics. And yet, all anyone seems to care about is what a disaster Rio de Janeiro was for a choice of venue this year, what with the outdoor water events literally held in raw sewage and the omnipresent threat of the Zika virus. Are you watching any of the Olympic games this year?
I’m not typically much of an Olympics fan, but my wife is a bit obsessed with the swimming and gymnastics events. As a result, I’ve wound up getting sucked into watching those as well. The swimming doesn’t do much for me. From my perspective, that’s mostly a lot of watching people whose faces I can’t see splashing around in the water. The gymnastics events are a lot easier to appreciate, both in terms of artistry and raw physicality.
