The summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro have begun. Yawn. It's an over-hyped, over-long, and generally overdone mess. There are so many events of such minimal interest that it's boring to watch. Add in the fact that NBC seems to have decided to make every other minute a commercial, and it amazes me that anyone watches this mess. I may tune in when they get to the combination fishing and trampoline event on Thursday, but until then, I won't be joining the audience.
