I tried. I sat, I watched, I saw some moderately interesting “performances” but I did not come away with a great sense of awe. All things being equal, I would say I’m typically interested in the Olympics but this year’s winter games have been blah. At times, I felt as though I was watching the low-lights of the Winter X-Games until the figure skating started. Even is it’s hidef presentation, I still found the games uninteresting and the U.S. did not figure prominently in most anything. Perhaps the summer games will have some hype but truth be told, I’m just waiting for the World Cup to kick-off. That has to be the high point for 2006 (in my book).
