Let the games begin!
Does anyone care about the Summer Olympics? Seriously. I really doubt that I will invest much time into watching the games over the next 2 weeks. And let's be honest here, most of the "games" and "events" don't even qualify as sports. Go ahead and try and convince me that Archery, Equestrian, Trampoline, Sailing, Shooting, "Table Tennis", or Synchronized Swimming are sports, because they're not! But, I hope to make time to watch the non-sport of Synchronized Swimming when Bia and Branca Feres hit the pool. They are to choreographed pool frolicking what Anna Kournikova was to Tennis. If i'm Dick Ebersol at NBC Sports, i'm giving these two as much camera time as possible.
