sophocleese BS: Winter Olympics stuff (27) RE: BS: Winter Olympics stuff 13 Feb 02

After all the furor over the skating I got a chance to see a video of the Russian pair and the Canadian pair. They both skated very well; clearly above the rest of the competition. I liked the Russians better (please don't tell the rest of the country) but I'd hate to have to decide which was better; they were different.

What really annoyed me though as I haven't been watching ANY Olympic television was how partisan the announcers were. Apparently the female canadian and the russian male had a collision during warm-up. "OH NO!" say the commentators, "That's going to make it difficult for the canadian to get her focus." What about the russian's focus? he's skating too and he skated sooner after the crash, perhaps HIS nerves were thrown by the collison. Anyway I am now confirmed again in my reasons why I do not watch the Olympics anymore.
