The Olympics started last night. Unfortunately, due to our local NBC station’s wimpy digital TV signal, I’ve missed the opening ceremonies, and will only be able to see the few events streamed online. I have to say, it was kind of fun watching people tweet last night’s festivities. I now have this vague collection of images forming a picture of what really happened in Vancouver last night, and it mostly involves a giant polar bear and some technical problems, boring and exciting people in roughly equal numbers.
While I’m generally bummed about missing it, what really makes me sad is that I’ve missed Squatchy’s debut. I mean, after all we’ve been through together, the least I could do is be there for his big night. I’m so sorry, Squatchy. Can you ever forgeeef me?
Sorry. I’ve let my emotions get the best of me.
What do you think about the Olympics? Do you watch them religiously, tune in sporadically, or ignore them utterly?
