There is only one Football. And it actually involves using the foot to kick the ball into a net. Everything else needs a name change.

US Olympic coverage sucks anyway - it's all "rah rah here we are aren't we great oh there may be other countries here too but they only exist if they're competing against the US and we'll only show coverage in prime time so we can get ad money so you'll only see highlights of US participants..."

CBC Olympic coverage on the other hand - "Yay Canada it's great that we're here and participating we'll show you as much of the events as we can even if Canada's not there and we'll give you human interest stories of Cdn participants *and* those from other countries and we'll show you more than the top 10 finishers in each event..."

(Yes I've seen US coverage on NBC - fortunately only one day - and I was *really* glad to be going back across the border to CBC the next day!)

During the 2002 Winter Olympics I was in New Orleans for Mardi Gras and I watched some of the coverage on NBC. I remember saying: are there even any other countries participating? Luckily, I made it home in time for the Canada-USA hockey final, which I, of course, watched on CBC.

Moreover, CBC's coverage is actually live, whereas NBC, for the most part, will show taped-events in prime-time.

I like it.

I'm sure a million people will complain, though.

Morning, bar!

I love the Olympics! I'll be away this year when they're on, but that's okay, as I much prefer watching the winter Olympics. I'm so excited that they're coming to my backyard, and hopefully I'll be able to afford to go to one or two events.
