    The coverage four years ago was ten times better—for those things I care about—curling (busty Canadians or not) and biathalon.

    I read a lot of complaining from my Facebook friends about the intrusive commentary in the skating, so you're definitely not alone.

    •  I don't mind busty Canadians. (0+ / 0-)

      I've always found our 51st state to be filled with great people.

      I am sorry that when we had our touch of disaster (Cheney -Bush admin), they also went conservative and austere. And now shale oil?

      What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

      •  umm, the only "busty" I remember seeing (0+ / 0-)

        was the AMERICAN skip! (Erika Brown) well, OK, the Canadian skip (age 39) did look a bit "healthy", but Brown more-so!

        we LIKE curling, don't care much for the Americans-uber-alles coverage, where you mostly don't see events if there aren't Americans in them, and then you see the Americans' performances, and the medal winners, but pretty much no-one else.

      •  Me, either—I married one… (0+ / 0-)

        I do like Canada, except for the climate. There was a time in and around '82 when I gave thought to moving there.
