    Question Winter Olympics, anyone?

    Not me.

    Maybe it's just that I'm getting older, maybe it's... I don't know. When I was younger I enjoyed watching them. Now, I couldn't care less. I don't think I watched more than 5 minutes total.

    If you're into it, I have no problem at all with that. Just throwing this out there.

    I watched a bit, probably ~an hour total... I used to watch a lot more years ago, not sure why.

    I did watch some of the summer Olympics, however less than an hour total of the winter Olympics. Can't explain why I have lost so much interest in the Olympics in general.
    I guess with so much going on these days, so many sports, etc., the Olympics have lost some of their luster.

    Build up to the games I only heard about Russia's anti doping shenanigans, then at the start of the games it was all, look North Korea is a thing! Guess nothing amazing happened at the games.

    In my limited knowledge of what went on... I'd have to agree with you. There must have not been that many USA big winners or they'd be all over the different TV talks shows. This one seemed to just fizzle and die.

    Doesn't that ruin the T.V.?
