I've been following the Olympics but not watching them on TV. Some people find this contradictory.

But it has nothing to do with the athletes or my hatred of winter or anything like that.

This story in today's New York Times gives a pretty good summary of why I don't watch. NBC's pro-American slant disgusts me. Not that I don't want our athletes to do well, but I want everyone to do well, and I appreciate the achievement of Olympic gold no matter what the athlete's nationality.

I actually find I'm more often interested in events that Americans are bad at. Those events get slight, if any, coverage.

So it's been a great and exciting games. Congratulations to all the hard-working athletes and the victorious! No matter where you hail from.

The coverage is just as pukeworthy north of the border.

That's both sad and reassuring.
