Are the Damn Olympics Over Yet?

Sadly, the answer to my question is "no." And it's pissing me off because it's jacking up my news shows on MSNBC (and why does MSNBC have to cover the Olympics when NBC and the Universal channels are already doing so?). Now if the Olympics were done the way they do things in Germany, I would be glued to the set. This year, over 14,000 people turned up in Braunlage, Germany to see the topless tobogganing contest.

The Olympic committee would be wise to add this to the 2014 games.

Are you kidding? This is the first time I can watch PMS-NBC and enjoy the programming.

Before I had to listen to Olberman and Maddow while wearing my Che Guevera shirt while reading Karl Marx.

Relax, Splash. The Olympics are about over and you won't have to deal with watching these world class athletes compete again until the summer olympics.

In the meantime you could turn over to Fox News to get your fix and maybe hear something a little more politically balanced. :)

The Fox thing won't happen, you can bet on that! I have nothing against the Olympics, per se, but it is just on too much. There are 500 channels on my cable, so why isn't there a dedicated Olympics channel? There is for everything else.
