The Olympics

The opening ceremony for the Olympics is this Friday. Why am I still not excited? It was much more exciting growing up. Maybe the bipolarity of the Cold War made the unity of this event special and unique. Maybe it is because I didn't grow up on the luge or curling. I don't watch ice skating at other times so why will I watch it now?

I'm not super-excited about it either. Trying to be, but it's just not in me. I wonder if it has something to do with the switch they made in the 90's to having both sets of Olympics every 4 years to staggering them.
