The Olympics

The media seems to like the Olympics:   there’s so much going on, so there’s plenty of relatively easy-to-access and more-or-less predictable material to meet the insatiable demand for content.   But, while I agree that the opening ceremony had its moments of interest, I certainly didn’t feel the need to watch team after team enter the arena.  Likewise, no-one takes any interest in some of the sports at any time other than during the Olympics (archery or trap shooting, anyone?), but it seems that a medal is a medal, no matter what the event!
