The Summer Olympics are on us, and not to sound like an overpaid useless TV anchor, I will let you know that the eyes of the world are on London.
Anyway, back to sounding like an underpaid internet blogger.
For those of you who forgot, just 2 years ago was the Winter Olympics over in Vancouver. For lack of a better term, I was obsessed with them. That’s all I did that whole 2 weeks. Night and day, day and night, every screen I owned was tuned into multiple telecasts of the Olympics.
In total I consumed around 200 GB of data by my own calculations.
Can I top that record this time around?
I’m gonna go with no.
For a variety of reasons.
A. It’s the summer games. The summer games are boring. Most of the summer sports are just not that interesting to watch, at least in my opinion. Swimming, really? Synchronized swimming? Track & Field? Weight lifting??
B. I have a full time job now, and while I could just have www.nbcolympics.com streaming on my computer all day, that would be cheating, and what kind of Olympic spirit would I have if I cheated? (don’t answer that)
However, that won’t stop me from trying. Gotta support our country and make sure those commie bastards don’t win anything.
Those who remember 2 years ago should also remember that I got totally engrossed in the sport of Curling, and, more specifically, the Russian Women’s Curling team, even more specifically, Liudmila Privivkova, and Anna Sidorova. Seriously.
Anyway, it looks like this time around the sports I will be obsessed with is Archery & Shooting (I am a male afterall). Womens, & Men’s events. Mostly because it’s something that I used to be able to do, and can convince myself that if I tried, I probably could get into it.
Anyway, that games have already begun, and I have my quest. Lets go.
