Meaningless Protest

I'm not watching the Olympics this year. I wish I could say it's because I'm upset at the IOC's fascistic running of the Games, to the point where athletes are forbidden to post online journals of their experiences. I wish I could say it's out of disgust over the scandals that swirl around the games and the big bucks that go to trying to steer the Games to particular cities. But, no, reality number one is that I didn't watch them two years ago, or four years ago, and barely even kept track of what was going on in years before. And reality number two is that while I do own a TV, I have neither cable nor antenna, and so couldn't watch the Olympics no matter how hard I tried. So, as sacrifices go, mine is pretty puny. But still, it's the principle of the thing.
