Summer Games Are Here (Yawn)

Just can't get pumped up for these games at all. It's a far cry from my early days of watching the games.

The first Olympics I ever watched were the 1980 winter games in Lake Placid. Kinda hard to top that one, I guess.

But, once Jim McKay and the folks at ABC stopped carrying the games, along with the addition of professionals from the United States being allowed to compete in certain sports, and the lack of someone to root against, like the good 'ol CCCP, or East Germany, it's just not the same.

I'll probably watch a little of the Olympics here and there, but I really could care less.

The fireworks are purdy, though.
