"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


you are not alone

Everybody else hates Tim Daggett and Elfi Schlegel and Al whoever's gymnastics commentary, too. The good news: the interesting parts are over. The bad news: individual events are still to come.

That ex-football player doing the human interest stories in prime time is driving me up the wall as well. I'm just sorry Outside didn't put its up-close-and-personal-omatic from the August issue online so you could do your own - it's a kindof mad libs for inspiring athletic stories.

What Olympic coverage is making you hit mute?

Actually, I kind of have it on mute the whole time or low volume and only turn it up when something interesting appears to be going on, like last with Dara Torres. Oh how I hope she wins! ;)

favorite quote so far ... for chris collingworth (the football player you mention):

"If you're looking for words, don't ask a football player. We don't have that large a vocabulary."
