Since when did the scoring in figure skating get so complicated?  What happened to 9’s and 10’s?  Now it’s 170.63.  What does that even mean? 
I want to be a figure skater.  I think they are so graceful and beautiful out on the ice.  I know it’s a lot of hard work and falling, but that would be so cool!  And the cute costumes would be awesome too!
I used to think I wanted to be a synchronized swimmer, but then I saw how much makeup they wear.  I still love to watch it though.  I think they are amazing.  They don’t show it enough, however. Same with rhythmic gymnastics. 
Speaking of which, I want a 24-hour showing of all the events.  I want to see the events that I am interested in, not just the events that NBC is interested in.  Don’t they own tons of TV stations anyway?  It should just be all Olympics, all the time. 
Moguls hurt my knees.  No, I have never done them, just watched them.  They still make my knees ache!
Let’s talk about how much money they spent on the opening ceremonies.  I know that compared to China’s spending $300 million, Canada’s $30 million is paltry, but really.  Yes, it was beautiful, but $30 million?  How many people would that have fed and housed in Haiti? 
Okay, that’s enough for tonight.  I’m off to watch figure skating!  Lost can wait until tomorrow.

I agree. I feel like I've missed out on a whole bunch of stuff. Even though I don't have a lot of time to sit and watch, I like to have it on just to hear what's happening.
I also agree about the money spent on the ceremonies. I was in the closing ceremonies at the SL olympics, and none of us got paid. It was all volunteer. Where was my cut?? (Just kidding, I would have done it for free) It's CRAZY!
I also think NBA and NFL players make WAY too much money!
