Nothing makes me want to shove my face in a pillow and ignore the world around me quite like the Olympics. First, I can't really get behind the idea of viewing my nation as a team. Unless, I guess, we're at war. Even then, it just seems to lack any kind of nuance. But, whatever. I also just don't care about the athletes. Or their life stories. Like, at all. Athletes seem to me to be the most boring people on earth, because in order to become world-class athletes, they need to focus everything on whatever physical endeavor they're attempting. And that necessarily excludes thinking about and doing a lot of other important things. I mean, they're pretty to look at. But so are lots of other people that aren't wearing red, white, and blue uniforms.
