My 2010 Winter Olympics Preview
Look, I took time Friday afternoon to build a snowman and go sled-bounding down a hill. Done with winter.
I actually turned on the TV Sunday afternoon to see which was more boring: The Winter Olympics or Daytona 500. Auto racing was on hold because of a pothole and NBC's Olympics were actually showing Biathlon - dudes cross-country skiing for miles and every once in a while stopping to shoot a rifle.
Who does this?
Hockey. Curling. Figure skating. Meh. It all seems so pointless after a party-filled NBA weekend that sets the table for the 30-game run to the playoffs.
