The Olympics are over and this post is about a week late. No matter, we’re really just early for the next Olympics. That’s in, like, four years, right? Or something?

I have a horrible confession: I am not a fan of the Olympics. I don’t actively dislike them, but I am not the type who arranges my schedule to watch any events. My DVR isn’t even plugged in (no cable), but if it were, I would not have set it for the Olympics (except to record gymnastics for my wife). All told, I may have watched about ten minutes total of this year’s games in various clips online and a few idle minutes of live television.
