I wish I believed in God so that when I say “Dear God” it carried some kind of punch. That aside:
Dear God, it has begun.
CBC has started it’s interminable coverage leading up to the Winter Olympics. I’m a sports fan, a big one, and when I watch TV it’s generally to watch a game of some kind, but the Olympics make me sick. Don’t get me wrong, I like seeing events that normally don’t get any coverage, but the soapy, inspirational stories that fill the time before and during the Games and the constant appeals to national pride utterly destroy it for me.
Make it go away, please.
