A sobbing Russian figure skater berated by one of her coaches for a poor routine. Grim-looking cooling towers in the background of acrobatic snowboard jumps. Diplomatic boycotts. Half-empty stands. Announcers covering the games from Connecticut. It all played out in a host country engaged in human rights atrocities that was also the origin site of a global pandemic. For NBC, it wasn't exactly Olympic glory in China.


Couldn’t have happened to a nicer Marxist country. I've watched at least part of every Olympics since Mexico City. (Don't recall if I watched any of 1980 Moscow.) Some years I recorded every hour, and watched it all. But I did not watch one minute of this one... not on TV, not online. And it was not difficult for me at all --- I did not have the desire to watch. So yes, I DO think the "brand of a once-unifying event for tens of millions of people is permanently tainted." Unless there are some dramatic changes, I don't think I'll watch future games, either.

I watched the movie "Miracle" with Kurt Russell instead. Now that was an Olympics to remember. This one, not so much. I doubt I ever watch again unless a lot changes in the world. I feel bad for the athletes but there's nothing I can do about that.

My first Olympics was when I watched the 1960 summer games from Rome and watched the Mighty Wilma Rudolph run like a gazelle to win two gold medals. I loved it! I watched most of the games until 1968 when Tommie Smith and John Carlos did the black power thing on the podium and then the Munich massacre of 1972 messed them up badly. There have been moments of greatness and sheer joy for me, but this year I ignored them all. In a just world, China would be shunned.

The Olympics has for all intents and purposes committed suicide. They strayed from their founding ideals and ended up with nothing. When the IOC awarded China the games, I knew it was over. Add to that monumental mistake cheating and treatment of athletes who tested positive for covid and I knew the whole thing was a farce. I am sad for the athletes but not enough to have kept watching the disaster. The essence of the games has disappeared under the yoke of political correctness. Have you noticed every aspect of life was better before the left decided to run everything?

I'll admit to watching a little of it. I mostly watched curling until I got fed up with the US teams constantly choking. The main problem with this Olympics is that it was dull. Too many X Games type events, too many nameless, faceless athletes giving us little reason to cheer for them, too many doped up Russian athletes. And the time difference with the games being played halfway around the world certainly hurt the ratings. Usually I'm kinda sad when an Olympics comes to an end. This time I didn't really care.

And since this marginal sports in the US have become the wokess of the woke, why watch? Of course not a word about that leftist fad. I breifly saw bits and poise of the games when I past a TV in a public setting. Not once, not once did I see a male sport. NBC might, just might consider trying to attract half of its potential audience by including male events next time.

Long gone are the days when the Olympics was a competition among amazing athletes who were held to standards of behavior and health. It was a season of when my kids were playing softball and learning gymnastics. It is gone. Remember it fondly and move on.

It's become nothing but a commercialized, money-making package for nbc and others. McDonald's took that big-time in Atlanta with the elevated arches outside the stadium that were in conspicuous view as the athletes marched in. Many games ago, I grew tired of the announcers trying to sound "live" while dubbing their commentary into much of the video.

The bloom is off the rose. The Olympics have been corrupted for at least half a century but holding them in China after COVID and other serious oI scandals only underscored that fact to the point that it overshadows every athletic endeavor. Covering women’s events seemingly exclusively felt forced and inauthentic. Like the World’s Fair the Olympics have seen their best days. And, the Gu-Gu doll skiing for China was disgraceful no matter her righteous-sounding rationalizations. The fact that she will attend one of the most sought-after universities in the U.S. after her public dump on our country is sickening. Her coyness about citizenship is laughable. China does not recognize dual citizenship and to ski as a Chinese woman she would have had to renounce her American citizenship. Her actions belie believing that she would have insisted otherwise.

There is only so much abuse we will take - at some point there are just too many Americans who realize what has been done to us. The Canadian truckers are only a piece of the rebellion. Not wasting our time on Olympic Follies or maybe not watching ANY of the professional sports whores like Lebron. He could float from one end of the court to the other (which he thinks he does) and I still would not watch.

I quit watching the Olympics a few cycles ago when the coverage got so chopped up - 10 minutes of one sport, 10 minutes of commercials, then switch to another sport for 10 minutes, 10 minutes of commercials, switch to a third sport, and so on. I'm not interested enough for that. I'd tune across the coverage occasionally as I was channel surfing, but never stayed more than a few minutes (at most until the commercials started). I'm done with China and political correctness.

It was a trifecta of problems -- hosted by one of the last communist regimes in the world, new faces kept out by athletes who have all gone one Olympics too many (Shuster, White, Shiffrin . . . ) but whom the network thinks we should worship, and wokism up the wazoo. Seriously, Shuster carrying the flag? And then we can't see the athletes faces at the Opening Ceremonies because half the screen is Shuster's family sitting on the couch at home?

Does it occur that the dog just doesn't like the dog food being advertised? The Olympics were great political fodder...1936, 1980 and 1984 come to mind. Those had nazis, commies and the good guys involved (or boycotting). Who doesn't like China, shoemakers to the world? The Olympics became a cash cow as the CIS wasn't the Soviet Union and we were supposed to like the former commies and encourage their entry to the developed world of the West. The athletes became walking billboards for equipment manufacturers and fashion houses. The US threw big bux at the USOC when our national performance wasn't #1. (Can't wait for the same after the Peking, er Beijing results.) And taxpayers were happy. The worm has turned. The Olympics is joining other professional sports in greated public disinterest. Too bad for NBC, but they have a contract. The good news is that by then everyone will be watching on their, if they can only measure that viewership!

I realize that several factors are involved...wokeness, etc. but I used to love the Olympics. Sometime in the seventies, I just lost interest. I wonder if being an old coot has something to do with it? As someone also mentioned, the overwhelming number of commercials makes it way too much trouble to watch. One of our local news station has gotten that way during their news hour. Commercial after commercial from ambulance chasing attorneys and people wanting to buy your home, so they can resell it. Then a short news story followed by more commercials and finally two minutes of weather.

Who would have thought that Canada would ever be a spark plug for a freedom movement against tyranny? Everything started when Ottawa’s police chief was ousted amid criticism of his inaction against the trucker protests that have paralyzed Canada’s capital for over two weeks, while the number of blockades maintained by demonstrators at the U.S. border dropped to just one. The twin developments came a day after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked Canada’s Emergencies Act and threatened to take tough legal and financial measures to end the unrest in Ottawa and beyond by protesters decrying the country’s COVID-19 restrictions and Trudeau’s government.

Not just the speech of protesters but of the press as well.

The suspect then fired several shots at the police officer, which was unable to return fire due to "severe injuries" in his right arm, according to the police department.
