I do not do sport. I do not have any desire to even think about doing sport. But boy, do I love watching it. I can watch almost any sport regardless of knowing the rules or not. There is of course one exception, Cricket. Rubbing balls and leg before wickets and umpires in floppy hats just can’t keep me happy.
So with the Olympics practically about to start, I am ecstatic. I really wanted to be in the UK at this time, but you know how it goes, the 4 or 5 years I’ve know about it have flown by and now it’s too late. Never mind, I can watch them.
DSTV have excellent coverage lined up, and a reasonable time difference should mean I won’t have to be up too late or too early. What I’m worried about is how to watch all the channels at the same time. I’m one of those people who get mighty fed up if I miss even a minute of an event, or horrors, flick channels only to find Usain Bolt having his lunch having won his event a couple hours ago. I’ve thought about PVR’ing, but there is so much to watch, I’ll never be able to catch up.
With that in mind I determined my best option was to check out the schedule on the Official OLYMPIC site. Holy cow, are they kidding me, I can’t even determine the different shades of pink let alone understand the logic.
This is going to be a tough couple of weeks. Anybody have a strategy for me?
Well apart from all the scheduling, what is all this bow-locks regarding displaying the official Olympic circles/logo? How ridiculous is it to stop the humble man in the street from showing his support by displaying the logo as bread rings in his bakery, or as floral rings in a florist. I can only come up with one word – GREED
And finally, the opening ceremony. Something the fashion police must surely be waiting for.
