Where are the truly magnanimous athletes of old? Scotty Hamilton, Picabo Street, Katerina Witt? Ahhhh yes.....Katerina.
Anyway.........where are the athletes to rally behind? Are we seeing sooo much of the Olympic Games that they are now common place and worn out? Can you hum the Olympic theme backwards while drinking a glass of water standing on your head? Maybe we should only see them every four years period and not scattered every two years between Winter and Summer.
I mean really......if we are now watching 50 year old people participating in the Olympics.....doesn't it make you wonder about the variety of conditioned, talented athletes that are out there?
Before anyone gets carried away.....thinking they too can participate in the Olympics....let me clarify. Skiing down the Italian Alps really is more scary in person.......the Luge is not glorified sled riding and Curling is certainly not shuffleboard on ice for beer bellied men over the age of 50.
Wow........now there's an image.
