If you were to read only what the media is saying about these games, you would think these sportswriters were grumpy about having to go to Italy to cover the games. I have never read so much complaining and grumbling about a games.

There is a lot of press about Bode Miller, Shani Davis, etc.. Some complaining, some trying to cover their initial dismay about Shani not racing in the team event.

Then there is there is the controversial remarks Bryant Gumbel.

You know what? Send some media who actually likes to go to the Olympics. I'll volunteer. I can be critical, and still have fun at the job.

For starters I would give the US a break on the medal thing. Who the heck cares if we have more medals than anyone? We aren't even the best in winter sports. Plus when you deal with elements like ice and snow, things happen. I am tired of the grumbling by the press. Poor babies - they get an expensed trip to Italy, and they have to cover sports. Give me that hell any day. Could be worse, these folks could go to Iraq, and risk their lives on an hourly basis.

Ok...rant over.
