he reaches for her

giving up his heart


I always think I don’t care about the Olympics but when it comes around I get totally sucked in to the different events. I must say that I find NBC’s coverage utterly lacking. The Opening Ceremony was great except for the asinine commentary that annoyed me especially during the musical sequences. Who thought it was right to speak when someone was singing?! And oh my gosh, all the frakin’ commercial breaks!!! Sure, I could watch online but we have a nice TV and why shouldn’t we watch it on our TV?

I didn't watch the opening ceremony but that talking over singing would've definitely irked me. I watched both US and Canadian coverage today and wasn't thrilled with either. I hope it improves.

I'm not as invested in some of the athletes or teams as I was in '08 so I doubt I'll watch as much as I did Beijing. It doesn't help that I'm expecting a pretty dismal performance by our Canuck team this year - one that certainly won't live up to Beijing let alone Vancouver. I'll inevitably get sucked into some of it though, especially my beloved Alex (see icon) who I don't expect to medal this year though ::sniff::

I'm not invested in any of the athletes or teams. I just want to see good stuff. :) I'll cheer for the US folks, of course.

The coverage is awful! You'd think they'd televise stuff even if it's in the middle of the night or whatever, but no! And it doesn't help that I even when I don't want to know stuff, I inadvertently read something on one of my social feeds. Alas!

The Opening Ceremony coverage was just horrible to me. And all the cutting to commercials was just awful! But seriously, the talking through the music just annoyed me to no end. I was going to throw something if they actually spoke during Paul McCartney's part but they stopped themselves.

Picking out the hot athletes during the parade of nations is the best part of the opening ceremony!

I know! I can't remember which country I thought had hot athletes now. Maybe Germany? LOL
