Aside from the political shenanigans, does anyone give a stuff about the Olympics? Will anyone be watching it with great enthusiasm? Sitting up in the wee small hours to see whether Latvia beat Rio Muni in the Men's 300m freestyle ping pong? I don't know anyone who thinks of it as a great sporting event. World cup football or Rugby, Cricket Internationals, F1 Grand Prix are all anticipated with relish. The Olympics by comparison seems like It's a Knockout taken far too seriously. Or is it just me?
