My wife hardly ever watches TV except when the Olympics rolls around and then she's obsessed. Anyone else like that?
The wonder of it all for me is the emergence of sports like halfpipe snowboarding. In my life I never expected to see shocking athletics like that. Back-to-back 1440-degree jumps?!! How could anyone have imagined that a few years ago?
I don't understand what is it about some Olympic sports like figure skating. As with swimming, we don't watch the sport except at the Olympics, and then it's obsession. Why?
