I’ve been sick for the past few days, so there is nothing exciting to report. On the upside: There is no better time to be sick than during the Olympic games with at least 14 hours of TV broadcasts every day. I am ridiculously well informed.
Apart from the nauseating nationalism and hatefulness that some sports fans exhibit during such events, loads of highlights and heartbreak have made these games such a thrilling event. One of heartbreaks: Shani Davis is not going to take home gold.
