It was a dark and stormy night. The midnight air hung like a wet dishrag scented with the musty reality of stale promises, neither pride nor prejudice able to taint the flaking veneer of lost hope.
The young college student gazed out his apartment’s broken window and wondered if it had been a mistake to major in paleontological reproductive systems. Perhaps his parents were right and he should have considered meercat podiatry.
Okay, enough of that. I don’t want to discuss dinosaurs (I worked with plenty of them back in New Jersey). Let’s digress and just get to my real question. Does anyone out there really enjoy the Olympics? I mean, seriously, does anyone find this overblown pompous political farce even vaguely reminiscent of a sports event? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
Before you ask ... No, I haven’t watched any of it this year. I stopped watching the Olympics back in 1980 when America and 64 other nations boycotted it to protest Russia’s occupation of Afghanistan. Hmmm, that in itself could generate a conversation of its own, couldn’t it? Well, I’m not about to start trashing our government for occupying Afghanistan! I’ll do that another day.
For now, I’ll just trash the Olympics.
