Why real Americans don´t care
for these Winter Olympics

Daily Mail [UK], by Jack Engelhard

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/20/2018 6:06:54 AM

If I had a say in this, there’d be only two countries taking part in Winter Olympics 2018 – the United States versus Russia. We don’t need the rest. Like it was when we beat them in hockey, 1980. As you can see, there are too many countries around the world…too many, absolutely, around Pyeonchang, which is in South Korea. Was that really the best choice? Never mind. That’s another topic. But I must say this – my Uncle Marv did return (wounded) from the war there; but 33,652 other Americans did not. It’s called “The Forgotten War.” I’ll bet it is not forgotten

I can´t watch because it appears the media want to make buggery a major Olympic event.

An athlete publicly whines because he did not get chosen to carry the flag, which is not fair because he is black or something. Our Vice President is disrespected by the boringly predictable liberal media. And the same cabal of morons drool all over the sister of a murdering dictator - a woman who would have them beheaded in her own country. No, I am not interested in the Winter Olympics.

I can´t watch because:
* The commentary is insipid.
* The nbcsports website is awful. No functional organization and when you get looking for anything, you get spoiler headlines on everything you haven´t watched, yet.
* You can´t watch anything live on broadcast, but you could watch the track and field championships live this week on CNBC. ????
* What is shown on broadcast is driven by teenagers with pants around their knees or metrosexuals.
* Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir. One looks like a man dressed as a woman, and the other looks like a woman dressed as a man.

As for Israeli publications, why to they all read like topic sentences with no paragraphs?

Real Americans.....! What a rotten premise based on his own warped sense of being a Patriotic American. Opinions are like belly-buttons. Everyone´s got one.

I happen to love some of the sports such as the skiing. These kids spend years to become finely tuned athletes in order to compete.

If it´s location then let´s talk about that. My father-in-law laid under the bodies of seven dead soldiers for three days before he was rescued. He had the scars of seven bullets that went up his back when the Norks machine gunned those in the pit to make sure they were dead. He was the only survivor.

Though that was my wife´s father just maybe I can still qualify as a "Real American" even though I do love the sports involved. (I must admit that watching them can be tedious if overdone. But in small doses I do enjoy some aspects.)

In most events I sense no connection to the audience. It´s kinda eerie. At some ice skating events the arena was half empty and there was just scattered cheering - and most often for someone we had never heard of before.
NBC rarely shows any Americans unless they are furiously waving a rainbow-colored flag.

For those of you Ldotters that long the games of the past where real talented athletes competed with each other, go back to the 1984 Sarajevo Olympics. Those were the games. Watch again the super duo Torvill and Dean winning the only ever perfect score skating to "Bolero". Watch again Katarina Vitt skating to "Carmen" and blowing the audience away. Also skiers like Tommy Moe and Peekaboo Street. How could they top that when they are more concerned with anti Trump, anti America and rainbow fruitcakes. So, nobody is watching. I am glad they are all losing.

I tried to watch them, but became bored with the Sunday talk show format and commercials that dominated the telecast. When the actual competition was shown, it was of events like hockey with Upper Slobobia against Lower Slobobia, or sliding rocks. The long interview of the gay athlete who trashed the Vice President and finished sixth in his event did it for me.

Well I like the Winter Olympics despite Rippon, Gus & Lindsay who should go off and reassess their wonderfulness. Give me Scott Hamilton & Tanith White over Hot Lips Tara & Fancy Pants Johnny moderating the figure skating - please!

I love the aerials - skiing or snowboarding even the 1/2 tube, that takes stamina & guts vs. the biathlon which is stamina & skill with a rifle.

Do I long for the coverage we had years ago (via Wide World of Sports) yes. Do I wish there was less quad jumping and more artistic skill in figure skating, yes of course; otherwise Michelle Kwan would have taken gold and not Tara.

To add to the poster above´s named favorites here is another - Oksana Baiul - The Swan in 1994. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qI27ulyzUoM
fortunately we can visit the past via Youtube.

Aside from the olympics being used as a gay agenda promotion scheme, the broadcasting is a mess. I happen to have a history in short track skating and enjoy watching it. Good luck. Ten minutes here, ten minutes there, then half an hour of inane nonsense from the moderators who know nothing about which they speak. I finally gave up, after wearing out my fast forward on the dvd. That black guy who didnt get to carry the flag because of his melanin content- icing on the cake.

My gripe with the Olympics is not with the individual events, some of which are beautiful sports to watch and envolve yourself in. My gripe is with the entire enterprise, they way the Olympics are run, the international politics, the exploitation of the athletes, and the crushing debt that gets saddled on the host cities and countries long after the Olympics have left town.The Athens 2004 ruined the Greek economy so badly that their debt load nearly brought down the European Union. And for what? So a small number of fat cat aristocrats can lord it over the host countries like royalty? Forget that.

The only winter sports I like to watch are figure skating, bob sledding and some slalom skiing. I watched several nights of the figure skating, then quit. It got rather boring since they all looked the same (not surprising since most of the top skaters had the same coaches and choreographers). Still having seen any bobsledding.

Have posted this on other threads. We set our DVR to record all the programming. Then we can remote control our way through the recordings, watching what’s interesting and sailing past that which is not.

Now I’d like to invent a way to eradicate the commentators’ voices - their incessant, often self-aggrandizing, chatter that makes it impossible to hear and enjoy the music the skaters are performing to. As for Tanith White, mentioned up the thread, she is one of the most obnoxious offenders. The queen of know-it-all, she never shuts up.

I´m with #11. That about sums it up. I haven´t watched any of it this year and not because I am boycotting it. Just no longer interested.

That said, NBC probably shot themselves in the ratings foot by gushing all over the ´gay blade´. Everybody in the country is not into the all gay, all the time stuff being put out. It hacks off a lot of folks who might watch a little Olympics coverage.

Once upon a time, the Olympics were a chance for the best AMATEUR athletes to compete while representing their countries.

Now, it is a bunch of PROFESSIONAL athletes out to earn more money from endorsements, and dragging their horrible partisan political opinions into the mix. They only care about the $$$, not their countries.

I am simply no longer interested!!!!!

The Norwegians are getting all the gold medals so it´s a safe bet real Norwegians care and are watching, just not NBC.

My own opinion, curling aside, the Winter Olympics are a lot wilder, whackier and riskier than the sanitized swimming and track events of the Summer Olympics. Turn the TV sound way down.

AN EXPLOSIVE new book has lifted the lid on the extraordinarily pampered life of luxury enjoyed by Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. The Prince is accustomed to travelling with his own very specific creature comforts, according to Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles by Tom Bower. The book describes how, before a visit to a friend in North-East England, he despatched his staff ahead a day early with a truck carrying Charles and Camilla’s complete bedrooms, including the Prince’s orthopaedic bed along with his own linen.

There is potential for more flights to be grounded tonight after a fresh weather warning was issued by The Met Office. Most of the airport cancellations were on short-haul routes, but British Airways services to New York and Chicago were among those affected.

IRELAND has hit out at Brussels in an unexpected security broadside, with a number of MEPs declaring “we do NOT support the EU Army”. Dublin and Brussels have grown closer during the past few months with Brexit negotiations siding the Republic of Ireland against their nearest neighbour. But this week a group of Irish MEPs have warned Brussels not to expect unquestioning loyalty from Dublin - especially on the subject of security. The warning was issued in a joint report by MEPs from Fine Gael, Ireland’s ruling government party, called ‘Ireland and the EU: Defending Our Common European Home’. The report said: “We

MOSCOW - Russia’s foreign ministry summoned Britain’s ambassador to the country, Laurie Bristow, for a meeting on Saturday, Russian news agencies reported, citing an unidentified ministry source. Russia is expected to expel British diplomats in retaliation for Prime Minister Theresa May’s decision to kick out 23 Russians, as relations between the two countries crash to a post-Cold War low over an attack involving a military-grade nerve agent on English soil. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Friday Moscow had already decided on retaliatory measures, which she said Britain would be informed of in the near future.

MADRID was plunged into chaos on Thursday as riots broke out following the death of a street vendor who reportedly suffered a heart attack while being chased by Spanish police. The protestors took to the streets of Madrid between 9pm and 1:30am (CET) and caused large-scale destruction in one part of the city – damaging bus shelters, patrol cars and shops. Shock footage from Lavapies neighbourhood of Madrid shows the region lit up in flames as protestors rebelled at police.

Seven American soldiers have been killed in a military helicopter crash in western Iraq.

Hillary Clinton will bring home a most undesired souvenir from India - a fractured wrist. The former Secretary of State injured her right hand on Tuesday, after slipping in a bathtub at the palace where she was staying in Jodhpur. Doctors were called to the Umaid Bhawan Palace and diagnosed the 70-year-old with a sprain, advising her to rest which forced her to cancel plans to visit the Mehrangarh Fort that evening. But the pain only worsened, and by Wednesday morning she decided to get her hand checked out at Goyal Hospital. Doctors there administered a CT Scan and an X-ray of Clinton´s wrist,

Sessions announced the decision in a statement just before 10 p.m., noting that both the Justice Department Inspector General and the FBI office that handles discipline had found “that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.” He said based on those findings and the recommendation of the department’s senior career official, “I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Thursday made a final pitch to the Justice Department about why he should not be fired just 72 hours before his retirement, leaving Attorney General Jeff Sessions to decide the matter with a deadline rapidly approaching. McCabe did not meet with Sessions, who was traveling Thursday, but with other senior officials, including Scott Schools, the most senior career attorney in the department. He arrived around 1 p.m. and departed four hours later. The decision could be consequential for McCabe´s financial future, as if he is fired, he could lose significant retirement benefits. The

The pedestrian bridge that collapsed at Florida International University´s Miami-Dade campus today, killing several people, was funded with $11.4 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation´s Transportation Investments Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program. The TIGER program has come under repeated fire for awarding money based on politics rather than merit. (Snip) In 2014, the GAO released a report that was highly critical of how DOT handled the TIGER V grants, which included money for the FIU pedestrian bridge project. The report said DOT advanced projects with lower technical ratings in lieu of those with higher technical ratings and upgraded the
