I have so many things to write about! However, I have been feeling pretty unmotivated to write. My last day at my high school is Friday!! Anyway, I’ve decided to write about the Olympics because I want to vent my frustration. Watching the Olympics in Korea sucks big hairy monkey balls. The sports coverage is awful. I only really care about two sports (gymnastics and wrestling) and I have only seen like 10 seconds of the sport I like and it was at 2am (men’s gymnastics). Okay, so here are some of the things I want to vent about:
- There are 3 to 6 channels playing the Olympics. If all 6 are showing the Olympics, it is highly likely that two or more of them are airing the same thing.
- Instead of watching live or other sports they haven’t aired, they show recaps of sports from one+ days ago.
- The sports selection! I don’t give a flip about archery, laser(?)/gun shooting, ping pong, fencing, handball, or badminton.
- The air time! I feel they don’t really devote enough time to live tv. I started to take an interest in Judo (since they were playing it a lot) but then they’d stop showing live to show a re-run of another sport with a Korean competitor or to do some side little interview (like at a current school training future athletes).
They have shown soccer and some swimming and I know those are pretty popular Olympic sports. Overall, I’m very disappointed in the selection and I feel like I’m missing yet another Olympic Games. 😦 I haven’t had any luck finding places to stream the Olympics. I’d gladly take any advice.
