Olympics

Hope every participant who 'takes a knee' looses by a wide margin.

Used to enjoy watching several of the events but don’t think I’ll be tuning in this time. Tired of the protest and people disrespecting the flag and the anthem of the country they are there to represent. From what I have heard of the upcoming NFL season chances are I won’t be watching any of that as well!

Lowest viewership in over 33 years--no wonder who wants to watch another show where the participants are being' woke'.
Over 33 years ago the participants wrapped themselves in our flag-- no more.

Opening ceremonies were down, the actual games are on the rise of total viewers (streaming).  Having in South America 5 years ago helped a lot, being more in line on the time zones.  I watched some of the opening ceremonies before work last Friday.  I wasn't about to tune into ceremonies that were on a 12 hour tape delay.  Hard enough to watch sports on that delay without hearing of a score, etc.
 
Once ever four years, you can watch non-stop the best athletes in their given sport.  I watched some table tennis today and some badminton.  Yesterday I watched some surfing, beach volley ball (women's of course), water polo, swimming, soccer (some was Olympics other was Gold Cup) and some gymnastics.  Not sure if any of them protested racial inequality or crimes against humanity.  My tightie whities are not so far up my crack to care that some are exercising their right to peacefully protest.  Maybe they should break into the Capitol waiving Confederate battle flags or Trump flags, since that is obviously just fine???  Your loss for not watching some of the best entertainment on Earth right now, to protest a few protesters...  I'm sure Tucker and crew will be laughing all of the way to the bank for convincing many to tune into them and their peaceful message of unity instead.

I should have stated it, "voted against Trump".  I'm guessing that 95% of votes cast for Biden, were votes against Trump.

Fortunately not all are 'woke' and being political.
That GREAT young lady winning Skeet and being photographed wrapped in our flag is an Olympic standout- in the military too.

Great post!  Last couple of days I've watched many amazing stories unfold at the Olympics, mostly involving teenage Olympians displaying maturity and sportsmanship beyond their years.  While on the other side of the world, a former president of the United States is encouraging Americans to boo the women's US Olympic soccer team.  What a pathetic little man.

I looked up what the ROC was about.  Basically a loophole in getting Russia into the Olympics after it was discovered they were running a state sponsored doping scheme.  Putin is such a good guy, just misunderstood...  That said, only those that were able to prove they had no connection to the scheme were allowed to participate.  At first, I thought, typical, let Russia get away with anything.  But then thought, if those athletes weren't doping, why should they be punished for their government's actions.

I'm glad you could find something you enjoy and just enjoy it. 

Sometimes, it's ok to just zone out, watch some obscure sport or activity and just take it in. 

The Olympics, while I disagree with them happening in the first place, have been a great distraction from the things that ail our country every day. 
I learned that badmitton is called BAD MIN TON all over the world except for the US apparently.

Listening to you **** and moan from the basement about the games being contested. Are you afraid of a breakthrough of your vaccine?

Hey I'm glad I could provide some entertainment for you brother! I am not afraid of a "breakthrough of my vaccine". (Though, between us girls, I'm not really sure I understand what you mean.)

Do you have a Venmo or something? I feel like at this point, I should be paying you some rent for living in your head.

…what has been your favorite part of the Olympics so far?


Watching the Today show hosts have to choke on congratulating the skeet gold medal winners because they were regular family and military folks who just worked hard to achieve out of the spotlight and won in a sport involving guns.

The poster formally known as Duncsdad

Everything I say can be fully substantiated by my own opinion.
