Rio 2016

The 2016 Rio Olympics start this Friday, are you interested?

I've never been that big a fan of the summer Olympics, I mean Archery, Badminton, and Canoeing? Seems like only yesterday we were watching Michael Phelps swimming. This year they've added  golf, karate, rugby, roller sports and squash.  Roller Sports? And come on, I like playing it but watching Golf is slightly less exciting than watching paint dry.

I began to lose interest in 1988 when they started allowing professional athletes to compete and lost more interest in 1992 when they started the alternating two year cycle between the Winter and Summer games. Beijing - Vancouver - London - Sochi it's all a blur, the games had more impact when they were four years apart.

So what do you think? Are you psyched?
