Now I Remember!!

Judged sports have always left a bad taste in my mouth, and I realized tonight what causes it.

Sportscasters. You know, the ones who talk the entire time the athlete is competing.

Oh man does that bug the ever living daylight out of me. I'd mute the television, so the unceasing, most likely Prozac induced perky voices would go away, but then I wouldn't hear the crowd and the sound of the sport. Such a dilemma.

And not to write an entirely negative post, but is the snowboarding half pipe the winter olympics' answer to summer's trampoline competition? Sure seems that way.

I want some action in my olympic games, people! Don't put figure skating at the top of the show...give me speed skating or luge. I mean, curling even! :)

And for the record, I do like Bob Costas. He makes me laugh. He can stay. The rest...go sight seeing in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Try'll like it. Put the mic down...that's it...

However, Jim Lampley is friggin nuts.

I don't consider any activity that involves subjective judgement to determine the winner of course there are a lot of things I would put in the activity category instead of sport.

I agree with you, Portia. Sports that involve subjective judgement determining the winner are not for me. I can't get into figure skating or snowboarding or some of these other sports. I'll take hockey or speedskating any day.
