I hate the Olympics, which is a quadrenniel celebration of nationalism and xenophobia.
Idiots at American TV networks that only show events where Americans will win the gold medal. That, and womens gymnastics.
Endless human interest stories and 5 minute biopics--if I wanted to watch that I'd watch Oprah.
I don't care about getting back to the Olympic center for thoughts from Bob Costas or Jim Gray.
If they treated it like CSPAN and showed competitions 24/7 without commentary and marketing I would watch. Otherwise you can keep it.
