I was never into the Olympics to that degree, but I was pretty close. It used to be routine for me to miss fewer than 20 out of 180 or so hours of network coverage of an Olympics. No more, at least as regards the Summer Games. With so much damn drug use going on, in many summer Olympic sports you have no idea who's really the best, and there is relatively little TV time devoted to sports that haven't had drug scandals to one degree or another. Oh, I'll still watch a lot of the Games, and I'll still post about them here on occasion, but "don't bother me while the Games are on"? Those days are over for me and the Summer Games, and they ain't coming back.
