It’s easy to make fun of the Olympics. They clearly haven’t figured out how to deal with institutional, state-sponsored doping. The Games are pricing themselves out of every market through excess and greed. (Read this article.) Their approach to media is archaic — on a good day.
But dang, we’re seeing fantastic ski racing. So grab yourself a bowl of kimchi and a Kass, kick the dog off the couch and watch today’s Men’s 4×10 relay and the Men’s Mass Start Biathlon. You’ll see the rise of a possible once-in-a-lifetime talent. You’ll see a 15k biathlon mass start race come down to a fraction of an inch — with one athlete pounding the ground, only to then find out that he actually won.
Trust me — you won’t be disappointed.
