I’m about to rant a little about the “New Olympics”, so if you aren’t interested, or like the new coverage, stop reading now and come back tomorrow.
I have always LOVED to watch the Olympics. It never mattered if it was the summer of the winter Olympics, I just love the beauty, the competition and the splendor. I also loved it when our country would strive to be the best and our athletes would stand on top of the podium and we would hear the National Anthem of our country!
I always got choked up and tears would come to my eyes. I had such pride in those athletes and our country, and it meant something to me when our flag was raised.
So call me disappointed that the coverage here in America does not include the medal awards, or the playing of the National Anthems.
I watched two young people, Meryl Davis and Charlie White skate a truly beautiful, perfect routine and win a gold medal. But I did not get to see the awarding of that medal.
I am so disappointed.
NBC you stink! Your presentation has been one of the worst ever. I do have satellite, so I have been able to watch some events live, and that has been nice. But I can only watch what they chose to present.
Perhaps in four years they will figure out a way to do this more fairly. I would actually pay a small fee for an Olympic Package. Just so I can see what I would like to see.
Meanwhile I am stewing about the rotten coverage.
