In a small conversation with my roommate this evening we quickly gauged each other’s opinion on the Olympics that kick off in as little as four days.
The Olympics are a world event, unparalleled in many ways. For athletes, it is a true forum for the human race to put down its opinions and strive to perform at the pinnacle of physical performance. Unfortunately to many others, the Olympics are treated as a communication channel for advertisers and politicians.
I do feel disconnected from this year’s Olympics. To be honest, I don’t know why this is the case. Of course I will watch whatever is available on TV before and after work; however I don’t think I’ll go out of my way to make sure I soak it up. I think the last time I did that, the Olympics were in Sydney.
How do all of you feel?
