    A Little Rant

    How many of you tweaked your schedules so you could watch live or recorded Olympics? Who's stayed up until stupid o'clock to watch the best of the best? Two weeks I'm sleep-deprived to the point where it feels normal, and the games go and end. Pffft. Just like that, the torch is out.

    Now what?

    Me too, I watched the beach volleyball gold at 4:30 in the morning live. I stayed up last night till 2am to watch the gold final for basketball. So worth it. I'm sad the games are over.

    I remember that silly CNN 24hrs of iraq war week (months?). Not that I watched it.

    Euro/World cup soccer is a real sleep breaker I must admit, but no, I don't lose any sleep over the olympics.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I stay up until stupid o'clock half of the time anyway, so if I watched the Olympics, it wouldn't have been a big deal.

    The only television I have that gets TV reception is a B&W Sony Watchman from 1984, so it's a good thing I wasn't interested. I had a brief flash of interest in checking out some of the track cycling, but the video player that NBC uses on their website is some platform-dependent piece of junk that doesn't support my platform. Oh well.

    Didn't watch *any* of the olympics other than 5minutes of swimming near the beginning.

    I didn't watch any of the games, either. I think I have some rabbit ears somewhere in the closet, but none actually attached to the tv right now.

    You forget you have to wait another 4 years for London. Although Vancouver is hosting 2010, winter Olympic just doesn't compare to summer, a whole different ball game.
