I have been glued to them. I don’t care where they’re held.
Sure the Chinese are doing some stupid crap, but this is their first time to be in the spotlight. Is it really that big of a deal that they used fake fireworks?
I never saw the opening ceremonies - but it’s just a glorified half-time show, and I never watch them anyway.
Replacing the ugly singer with the cute lip-syncher is pretty low, but not low enough to stop me from being glued to the TV.
I am more disgusted with the judging, but I don’t know how much influence the Chi-Coms have over the various international organizations.
Olympic boxing is a fucking joke. 4 2-minute rounds? Since fucking when? The computerized scoring is abysmal. I hate it.
And NBC is doing this train wreck of a sport no favors by using that half-retard guy who used to train Tyson. The guy sounds like a fucking idiot.
The gymnastics has been very disappointing due to the inconsistency of the judging. I don’t really care about the age of the Chinese gymnasts, so that’s pretty much a non-issue.
Overall, though - the REAL sports (contests that do not require the subjective opinion of a fucking panel of judges) have very entertaining.
