Is anyone actually watching that Olympics thing?
For the first time since it started, I actually [and accidentally] saw a bit of it last night. I think I was waiting for the weather forecast or something, but they kept switching from one reporter to another giving us the breathless news on Ireland's progress.
It seems we aren't doing very well?
Does anyone really give a pig's fuck apart from the competitors and their families?
Most of Ireland's entries seem to have crashed and burned at the qualifying rounds, and each one seems to give the same answer – well, I'm really only warming up for the 2020 games. Fair enough but don't expect me to hang around. And what happened to all those who were "only warming up" at the previous Olympics?
How many fucking reporters have they sent over there anyway? Each time they switched to a different event there seemed to be a different reporter, though in some cases they were called "analysts"! How to fuck do you analyse how someone runs a few meters? Either they win or they don't?
I have also heard reports somewhere that apparently the organisers are dead worried as half their brand spanking new stadia are half empty? So they unceremoniously bulldoze whole shantytowns, build massive great stadia that no one will ever use again and cost a fortune that they don't have, and no one comes to sit in them?
The only item of extremely tepid interest is some scandal involving ticket touting that involves some Irish company. Fair enough. If someone wants to break the rules then that's their business, but someone here is demanding a gubmint enquiry for fuck's sake! It has fuck all to do with the gubmint and is a between the sports crowds and their legal teams. But then tax money is free [to them] so I suppose they'll hold one.
There is only good thing I can say about the Olympics.
At least they don't hold 'em every year.
Once a century would be too much for me.
