Yep, I yawned a lot. The camera work on covering the sports was excellent, but it ought to have been, with NBC taking the lazy way out by delaying everything 3 hours. We could have done with a lot less of the "sob sister" reports on athletes, athletes' families, etc, but NBC thinks that sells soap, so we get too much of that by their order.
I found it hard to get excited overall, even though the better preparation of the US athletes showed up in the number of podium finishes, a category under which the US won these Olympics. Most amazing WASN'T the Alpine skiing, as most would have us believe, but the Gold Medal finish of the Men's 4-man Bobsled, a first since 1948.
In case you didn't know, this sled was built, and the training program for it developed, by NASCAR folks. Put THAT in your pipe and smoke it, you effete metrosexuals who constantly rag on the "redneck" sport of NASCAR.
As for the men's Ice Hockey, the Canadians' NHL people beat the US' NHL people for the Gold just now. Stand by to Ho-Hum, unless you are Canoodlian, in which case you cheered your guts out. It's your sport, you deserved it. Just in case you can't believe that Ice Hockey is THE national sport of Canada, during the medal ceremony, the rink was lined with Mounties in full-dress red tunics, riding breeches and riding boots. Those Mounties weren't there during other ceremonies, or if they were, weren't down with the recipients of the medals.
Overall, the Olympics have changed radically since the collapse of the Soviet Union and East Germany. Back in THOSE bad old days, the Sovs and their client states doped their athletes onto the podia, and now they can't, so new nations can come to the fore.
At least we get Leno back now...
