      I have youtube TV and it has something called "The Olympic Channel" on it but all I see there seems to be 24 hours of Tennis.

      But I haven't been watching any olympics on any channel this year. Not really interested. And don't really care if the USA wins or loses, because our teams are a bunch of whiny woke nitwits who hate our country. They don't deserve to represent the USA or to win.

          Ditto. Somehow with everything go on, the Olympics isn't important.

          I do feel bad for Japan that their time in the spotlight got ruined.

            Not all of them. Just the ones that the MSM fawns over.

            And I lost interest in the Olympics when they started with doing a 5 minute biography of someone who always had some difficulty to surmount to make it to the Olympics) then watching them for anywhere from ten seconds to a minute tops. Then on to the next person to do the same thing to.

            Why do they think I want someone's life story before seeing them perform? Especially since that was very likely the last time I'd ever hear of them. When you add the commercial and the commentary you got 5 minutes or so of actual events.

            No thanks. Wasn't that interested any way.

              I don't quite feel bad for them. They chose to go ahead with it in spite of all that's going on in the world. I personally think that the games should have been done away with years ago. I don't understand what purpose they fulfill except to boost the pride of the athletes and the countries involved, and to line the pockets of sponsors.

                The members of the Olympic committee are treated like royalty -- literally. And they demand it as well.

                      I remember some talk about who can cancel the Olympics. My memory is the Japanese couldn't do it. I think it would have had to come from the International Committee.

                      So we can add the athletic-industrial complex to the military-industry complex, the medical-industry complex, the educational-industrial complex, etc.? Gads, I feel like a piece of raw material being grabbed by one of these industries and molded into what they want - all the while paying them to do that to me.

                            I figured you for a biathlon sort a guy. Cross-country skiing and target shooting. You know, assassination practice in a snowy environment.
