Triumph
I have something to confess.

I don't really care about the Olympics.

I dislike competitive swimming and don't really give a damn about competitive running.

The only events I have remote interest in are the diving and gymnastics and Australian coverage is notoriously bad at covering them. Or anything other than swimming and running.

I'm not an epic naysayer to the point where I'd say they shouldn't exist, because I understand there are many excellent reasons as to why the Olympics are a triumph. I simply don't think I could stand 24 hour coverage of the Olympics every day for the next how much ever.

I really think a HUGE factor in my lack of enjoyment is how badly the programming is done. Instead of focussing on a few key events, they try to cover EVERYTHING AT ONCE, so you'll just have caught one gymnastics segment and then suddenly you're watching basketball.

Unfortunately even the BBC seem to have caught that affliction. I tried to listen to the GB v UAE football match last night; to start with it was on an obscure channel I could only get through the computer, and was interrupted by women's hockey and part of a boxing match. Then, twenty minutes before the end, it changed channels altogether and I had to go into another room to listen to the end. *Sigh* ...

... even the BBC? Well, then. The end is nigh.
